And Another Week Rolls Around

Here we are, Sunday night again and I still have no idea where the time goes...

Well, some of it was devoted to this:

That's the midpoint of the Needle Beetle Seaman's Cap that I've made so many of before. I'm making it for Senator Webb (D) VA as part of the Warm Hats Not Hot Heads project. I had some leftover Wool-Ease worsted and decided to use it up. Discovered I have a couple of skeins of Encore DK in a cranberry/black marl that will work for the third one I'm making for Senator Warner (D) VA, and with that one, I can add black stripes from the Goodlatte hat leftovers!

So both of these will count towards my 111 items in 2011, as well, because I've had all this yarn in stash since 2005 when I made my first lace shawl from the Wool-Ease - and if you click on that link, don't fall over - yes, that's what I looked like from the back way back then (sigh) I don't miss that mop of curls, except that I never had to worry about making it look decent! Just shampoo, scrunch, and go!

Oh, and the cranberry/black marl I've had since the same time...I made an Aibhlinn and my first pair of mitts, VooDoo (both those links are from Knitty). I think I've also made a Seaman's Cap in this yarn, I had so much of it! So wow, I'm busting stash all over the place here, aren't I?
Anyway, this week is going to be busy, my "to-do list" is already long and it's only Sunday night. One of the things I have on my list is to sit down and find out just how many of the 111 things in 2011 I've completed so far.

And then start putting together the list of bags and needle cases I need to get made for the Olde Liberty Fiber Faire...and the rest of my upcoming shows!

Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow - hope you get roses, chocolate, and lots of

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
