Don't you just love Wee Tiny things?
obsess: to preoccupy intensely or abnormally
Knitting/crocheting is an obsession for me. Whether that's good or bad depends on the perspective.
My house would probably say my knit/crochet obsession is a bad thing as the dog-hair tumbleweeds roll across my dining room floor. LOL
If you are my husband and want to go to the NCAA tournament in Detroit for the weekend, my obsession can be a good thing as my first thoughts at his mention of going were of sitting for hours knitting and not feeling guilty because I'm not giving him enough attention.
My budget...this one is a toss-up...of all my hobbies, knitting/crocheting isn't the most or least expensive I've indulged in so it could be better or worse.
If you're my daughter, Rena, it's definitely a good thing as Rena has the same obsession (only no anti-knitting, as she refers to crochet, for her)
This knit/crochet obsession is keeping me from cleaning my house today, I can't get that crochet dress off my mind. While cleaning out my car getting ready for the aforementioned NCCA trip on Friday, The Saint "found" a box (20 skeins) of cotton/acrylic that's I've been driving around for months. The same box of yarn that was in my office at work for several months before I put it in my car. I got a "good deal" on eBay and couldn't I pass it up. 20 skeins of cream cotton/acrylic for cheap! Certainly enough to make the dress. Now that I've figured out it's the correct gauge, I-want-to-crochet, endlessly!
And if you are my carpal tunnel syndrome...well, you know, it's been a few pain-filled days. I'm not one to complain about it since it is resulting from too much of something that I enjoy doing. However, I've had to resort to wearing these at night, again. gah! Hate 'em. Hate aging and having nerves and joints that protest when I try to work them like they're still teenagers. I'm gonna try to take a break...as soon as I get this dress done...ROFL
And I've got a new toy, it's gonna help me be more organized, and send faster text messages to The Saint. In theory, I won't need this paper calendar anymore, yay! And I can even check my email, from anywhere. Ah, technology...I won't have to miss a single Knitty email no matter how far away from home I am. lol Thanks everybody for stopping by and leaving comments. I've recently gotten word that I may have a guest blogger sometime soon. She's the author of one of my favorite knitting novels, an advance copy of her new book is on it's way to me as you read this, it's so exciting...stay tuned
In the meantime Sam wants to know "Whe'a da paw-ty at?"
