Weekend Wonderment ~ 11/18 - 11/20

This is what a lazy weekend looks like.. at least to me.
  1. I decided to challenge myself and figure out a simple crochet pattern.  Since I know how to do a Granny Square, I thought this particular pattern would be a good start so I could see in print what I already know how to do.  I need 12 squares in all and so far, I've got 4 that I like.
  2. I am going to start mapping out a new project for January and it's so hard to do when you've got great new magazines like these two.  I want to make every single thing out of the Austen book.. literally, everything!  Plus, I want to get some baking done this weekend and my sweet Pokey surprised me the other night with Miss Paula's Christmas edition.  I can't wait to sink my teeth into it.
  3. I've got two important WiPs that need to be "whipped" up and done.  I hope to have Button Up Buttercup completed tomorrow and this particular Hallow Pullover sleeve done by Monday.  That's my goal anyway... reality might be different.  I hope not but just being realistic.
  4. Still chugging away at squares for Pine Ridge charity blankets and I'm trying to get the whole "crochet circle" thing figured out.  Squares are so easy to do in the car pick up line.  I can do one a day, sometimes I can even start a second so by the end of the week I've got a nice stack to mail out.
That's my weekend in a nutshell.  Next week, Hobbit only goes to school for two days and then we're going to spend some time over at Disney Hollywood Studios during her Thanksgiving break.  I know initially we decided that we weren't celebrating the holiday since Peanut couldn't be with us... and even though I knew this, I bought a "just in case" turkey when it was on sale and tucked it away in the big freezer in the garage.  Looks like we'll be making it on Thursday but only as a regular supper - no full fledged operation.  Parade, turkey, "A Miracle on 34th Street"... that's it.

So what are your plans for this "pre-holiday" weekend - anything exciting?


  1. Looks like a lovely chilled out weekend, I hope you have fun!

  2. Love those little crocheted lovelies! All of those magazines are fabulous, I would have a hard time focusing on anything else.
    Sounds like you will be having a wonderful Thanksgiving!
