Happy Wednesday! It’s my day off! Honestly, it’s my first day off since last Wednesday. We are so short staffed at work right now! I’m feeling like I’m going to have to take a week off just to rest and hang out with my friends and family. For now, though, I’ll just enjoy today: a little knitting time with my best friend, maybe some lunch, the link up at Small Things, and a whole lot of sleep!
I have still managed to get some crafting done.
I’m nearly done with Section 3 of the Spice Of Life blanket. The pattern for Section 5 was released yesterday, so I’m about a week behind most of the crafters.
I decided to use Ocean, Soft Blue, and Soft Pink as the three additional colors. Ocean is the exact shade of green used extensively in my quilt, so it just seemed to fit.
I put Harry on hold to work on some riveting continuing education reading. 🙄
I’m still working on the super secret project that I mentioned last week.
I also started some baby gifts for two of my coworkers who are expecting. They are due about two weeks apart; one having a girl and the other a boy. I decided on Milos and matching hats. So far, I’ve got one hat nearly done and one Milo underway.
I’m using my “go to” baby hat pattern. I modify it slightly by knitting a mock cable every fourth row. The pattern is really easy to modify for size, too. I cast on 72 stitches vs 68 for a bit more longevity.
I’m now home from hanging out, and lunch, with my bff. (Really good taco place!) Time for some crochet and sleep.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.
