|"Some Assembly Required" = "Make It Yourself"|
I'm working on decreasing the toe for my first sock ever. It's been less crazy than I feared it would be which is wonderful. I do worry that I will run out of this leftover yarn before I finish the second one but we'll see how it all turns out. Either way, I've conquered my fear AND learned a new technique (Norwegian Purl) in the process... half of my 2011 Promise to Try item completed and it's only April!
My brain has been trying to come up with a cute little case for Peanut's mp3 player. It needs to be a functional piece that can house the ear buds when not in use but also be cute while wearing it so the music can be mobile but safe. I was thinking of a necklace type thing since she will have it with her at college - and she will always have a coat and scarf since it's colder than she could ever imagine... just not sure how I want it to look past technical stuff. I borrowed Beatrice (yeah, she named it) last night and while I was enjoying my "lost" copy of "Les Miserable - The Dream Cast", I outlined her on a stray envelope so I could make... well... something. Oh hang on, phone's ringing...
|Hobbit's eye appt was this morning - I couldn't resist shooting it|
Alrighty, off I go. Just want to finish my delicious cup of Peppermint Mocha before I get started on the afternoon craziness - plus, perhaps I can get a jump on tomorrow's craziness since someone (Pokey) promised someone else (Hobbit) a picnic in the park since everyone will be home together. I don't care how crazy tomorrow is - it will be nice to have all my babies home all day.
