WIP Wednesday the Fifty Seventh...

I don't have a picture this week - but I can tell you that I am 99% done with it. The stripes are completely done and all I have left to do is the border. I'm thinking something in bright green, because I'm strange like that.

Unfortunately I don't have any more works in progress to share at this time. I have plenty of yarn and plenty of ideas for projects - I just haven't started them yet because I can't decide which one to start!


How are your Works in Progress going?

The Dark Knight Rises Edition...

The husband and I saw The Dark Knight Rises today and it was amazingly good. A little long, a little slow, but really really really good. I have to say that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a very long way from his time on Third Rock From the Sun.





And Tom Hardy as a bonus because he was fantastic as Bane (even if the voice was a little hard to understand)

WIP Wednesday the Fifty Sixth

I'm posting a little late again, but, hey, at least I remembered to post this week. I've been doing a lot of emails at work lately, so I'm kinda tired at looking at a computer screen. (This is part of the reason why I haven't been so great about commenting on other people's blogs or replying to comments on my own. I'm horrible.)

I have reached a dilemma with the baby blanket:


I know I need to add one more small white stripe... but should I do another pattern repeat after that? I feel bad for taking so long to get this done, so I want to get it done as soon as possible, but I want to make sure I do it right y'know?

Decisions... decisions...

Messing with the Kid...

A couple of friends and I had a girl's day yesterday. We ended up going to lunch and then we went off to see Magic Mike. It was an okay movie over all. Seriously the best parts were watching Joe Manganiello sew his own thong, Channing Tatum dance (because GOD that boy can dance!) and looking at this kid - Alex Pettyfer:




I won't deny. I feel a little bit like a cradle robber right now. Just a smidge.

WIP Wednesday the Fifty Fifth...

I have officially decided that the baby blanket is nearing completion. I remembered last night that my friends baby is going to be one year old soon so 1) this is way over due and 2) he's probably still on the smaller size, so a smaller blanket is fine. There's no need to create something that will last him until High School.


I think one more stripe of the white should be enough, and I have some green left over from the last baby blanket I did that I can use as trim. 

Connor-cat will be happy - I think he's getting tired of seeing me work on the blanket, because last night he decided to plop down right in the middle of it, making it impossible for me to continue crocheting until he left.

(see, that is an unhappy kitty right there. How dare I crochet when I could be petting him?!?)

WIP Wednesday the Fifty Fourth...

Since I tend to forget to update my blog on Wednesdays a lot, and since trying to write a blog on my tablet or phone is a pain in the butt because the blogger app won't let you add pictures from Picasa or create links, I am going to try something different this week. I am going to write my blog a day in advance and then schedule it to post on Wednesday instead! (And of course, as soon as I did that, I realized that tomorrow is the Fourth of July and my Birthday, so I'd be home to write the post and didn't need to schedule it. Oh well!)

Slowly but surely the scarf is getting ever closer to it's completion!


I had to go in on Saturday to work since it was the end of the month, and man was it dead - we're talking 30ish minutes between calls, under 20 emails... I don't think people realized we were open - so I plugged away at it until I was sent home early. I am hoping that I can finish it this week, and then I can focus on the baby blanket (though taking that to work will be impossible!) 

I started A Round of Words in 80 days this week! It's kinda like Nano in that it focuses on trying to get people to write more, but you get to set your own goals. For me, I am hoping to finish the short story (officially renamed... to what you'll just have to wait and see!) but my hard goal is at least 200 words a day.  I'll be tracking my progress over here at my new writing blog: The Girl Who Writes (which is a spin off of what one of the higher ups at my job calls me; the girl who knits)
