So Bless is stitched up and waiting for a zipper. It's been ready for a zipper since last Thursday when I wore her to the fabric shop. They didn't have an orange zipper, but the drycleaner did, but then I forgot to buy orange thread so Bless had to wait until today for thread.
After the thread was bought, I stopped by Toronto's oldest, largest and crankiest* yarn shop today since I was in the neighbourhood. I don't go there often because I'm never in the area and I can usually find what I want somewhere else that's much friendlier.
But today I was looking for something a tad more...frou frou. Some Berroco Suede to make these. Aren't they super cute? I owe the next-door neighbour a happy baby present and there are more babes on the way and I couldn't resist the idea of little baby Uggs.
And I picked up some Baby Cashmerino to make myself a Skull Hat (no, not to go with the skull scarf--I gave that away--and yes I do miss it, but it was never knit for me).
And, I made a hat for Craig this weekend (which is felting as we speak) because he lost this hat. It's pretty much the same hat, with some minor colour changes and modifications. And while I'm miffed he lost it (it was his favourite hat), I love him and I love felting so it was no big deal. If he ever loses Na Craga, that'll be different.
So now I have a pile of exams to mark (89 to go, but they're not as bad as marking essays) and new yarn to make small projects (like super cute booties) and a sweater that needs a zipper and all my other knitting and I'm almost paralyzed into inaction. And, I'm trying to get to bed earlier (like 10:30). Which means that I'm going to bed, right after I get the hat out of the washer and baste the front of Bless closed so it feels like I'm one step closer to a FO.
*Someone went to the front counter and asked if she could have some help making a yarn selection for a toque and they said no, they didn't have time. That's cranky.
