buttons, the CAL, and more

I haven’t been working on any projects this week other than tidying up the apartment.  It’s gotten SO BAD — I’d be embarrassed to have people over.  With tidying comes yarn organizing, too, of course.

giveaway binThis new bin is full of projects to give away.  It’s full but can be squished down to add more.  Now that these items are in this bin and not in my yarn drawers, I have room in the drawers for the yarn that’s been in bags on the floor.  Now I just need a place for this bin…




As you might also not be able to see if you’re using your phone, the countdown widget says we have 17 days to go until we start the CAL!  I hope you’ve ordered any yarn that needs to be shipped to you by now, just to make sure you get it in time!  This is very exciting, and I’m 95% sure I’ll be making a throw sized blanket.  This way I’ll actually have a blanket for my couch that isn’t super-huge, and I’ll have extra yarn for any other projects I might want to make later.  If you’re planning on making a bigger blanket, never fear — we’ll still only be going a small number of rows per week.

That’s a good question to ask you all, actually.  How many rows would you like to do per week?  It’ll obviously have to be more than 1 if we want to finish any time this year, but I hesitate to go over 6 since I know some of you will be making bigger blankets and that will take more time.  6 would mean you could just work 1 row a day and have 1 day off each week, if that makes it easier.  What do you think would be a good number?  I’ll try to average your responses so that everybody is at least comfortable.

There are more topics to write about but this post is long enough, so they’ll have to wait.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you check out some of those button links!  And don’t forget to let me know how many rows you want to do per week!
