Head on over here to see how Britni and I get down on infusing our own vodka into 5 different flavors. You are allowed to drool over her photos , like below: (one of the only times a non-iPhone photo will make an appearance on this here blog)
I like that picture because it shows the chips/wine carnage (probably the most important ingredients, yes even more than the vodka itself). And because you can see my engagement ring on the right! Oh yeah, by the way blogworld, I got engaged. Like, 2 weeks ago. Haha.
A nice old lady came into Morgan’s work giving away handmade crochet potholders.
Her stitches are SO PERFECT.
Remember my first crochet project…the square? [Surely you do…it was like 3 weeks ago!] Well I took that whole “square” thing and ran with it.
I am a granny square making machine. Using a bunch of my 75 cent yarn from Deseret Industries (my new favorite thrift store, sorry Value Village), I’m hoping to eventually complete an entire blanket. Its amazing how fast these little grannies whip up! I can make a few during each movie (or more likely, X-Files episode) that we watch. The colorway I’m envisioning is a mix of all different oranges with some pink/red/yellow hues thrown in for good measure. But what color should surround all the squares? I don’t want white or black, I’ve been thinking a dark smoky gray but not 100% set on that. Any suggestions?
Pictured above are the yarn skeins I got for 75 cents each, they had tons more, but I felt guilty acquiring all that yarn at once [even at such a cheap price]…though now I wish I had bought them out!
I’m easily amused. Like a squirrel, drawn to shiny things.
I dumped my huge bag of sequins out into a bowl and I’ve been sorting them and playing with them for at least an hour now. <sigh>
I made my first crochet project. Guess what it is?
Morgan: “What are you making?”
Me: “Um, a square?”
So…it’s a…potholder! Or dishrag? Or trivet? Whatever, I’m just super proud of myself for crocheting for the first time.
[Shoutout to Britni for patiently teaching me, as well as to a book from my mom literally called “I Taught Myself Crochet” haha]
