Today I began the popcorn pillow from the Hip to Crochet book. I think they call it a honeycomb stitch, but it looks like popcorn to me. So far I am loving the way it looks. My son saw the beginnings of it and said it was cool and I could make some money making those for people. Yeah, if only I were in it for money. Drat. It is a great stitch were by to sit for prolong periods of time and meditate on just being.
I confess that I have ordered more yarn from Elann. Some Shetland tweed to make a shawl I will call the "Luna Shawl". I can't wait to get the yarn so I can start this project. It is the coolest stitch pattern, if I do say so myself; not to mention the fingering weight tweed wool will feel so cozy to curl up in for reading and watching movies. I am cold blooded by nature and need to devive warmth from the sun, like a reptile. Anytime I sit still my body temperature drops significantly. Although, my husband says that it's like sleeping next to a furnice at nite next to me because I give off so much heat. Go figure; at least someone benefits. Anyway, the shawl will be greatly used this fall and winter. Also, I ordered some mohair yarn to make some scarves for gifts for some unknowing people. Can't wait till it gets here next week.
We did pretty well in the yard sale. My boys got a nice pile of cash and my dad took out a bit and treated us all to lunch at the Craker Barrel. I ate way to much (I will admit that the Chocolate Cobbler put me over the edge--but it was totally delicious). What we didn't sell went to the Goodwill Store. Now we have to pick another day and do it all over again with the next load from the attic.Whew!
Since I over-indulged at lunch, it is what we call around here "make your own nite"- - my little one couldn't be happier. He is having Mac-n-Cheese. I will be having alkaseltzer. We have movies to watch, so have a nice one and remember to play nice
