I spent most of Sunday working on the rose dress. I also accidentally cut my right index finger with my rotary cutter. It wasn't very deep but it still smarted so I started crocheting the snowman.
I realize the picture is rotated wrong but I don't feel like trying to fix it at the moment. I worked on this Monday night as well. I figured out Tuesday that was a good idea.
I've started bringing smaller travel friendly projects with me to work on during my lunch break and the time I have between dinner and the start of dancing on Tuesday (thus the pumpkins getting done so quickly.) I brought lil jack + the kitty to work this week. Poking my finger with the needle was not fun. I learned by Wednesday to get around that or it had healed enough not to smart. But I managed to finish it. Ta da!
I made my snowman's arms and started the hat on Thursday. Friday night I spent putting the thread requirements for my new charts into my dmc spreadsheet and made a list of the specialty threads and beads to get at a later date. While working on the hat, I had an interesting dilemma. The skein of white yarn (yes it looks blue. I blame my daylight bulb for that) started out like this:
It unwinded to this:
This proceeded to get knotted and twisted and almost unworkable. So after a little internet search voila:
My own center pull yarn ball. Isn't it cute?
