Grades are in, lists are made, tenderloins are frozen, patterns are printed, projects are organized. Now I have a few days of 'me' time, if 'me' time means doing laundry, cleaning the house, and arranging to leave here for three weeks. I'm also doing a radio interview about 'woke washing' today with a Sirius radio station based at BYU (that should be interesting).
But yay! I have a bunch of books downloaded on the Kindle and am so, so looking forward to a break!
I meant to do some work on the Great British Baking Shawl but as it was cold and rainy yesterday, I cast on for a hat for me.
Lake Reed and it is free on Rav.
I've taken a stab (hahahahah) at a new pattern--this one is bigger--it is too big for a 6" hoop but will work in an 8".
Speaking of hoops--I hated the Q hoop or whatever the square one is called. (Googled: Q Snap). What I do love are these fake wood rubber ones and they come in lots of different sizes and really grip the fabric. I also use these to hang the finished work.
And another one
Molly Makes is having several days of free patterns that they're bringing back from previous years (maybe just this year) and I printed out this one--it is also going to fit in an 8" and I'll stitch it on blue fabric.
I'm reading "The Silent Patient" which is---OK? I'm not quite into it yet and I'm about a fourth through. There keep being little hints of mystery that keep me reading. We'll see.
