Yarn Along 8
More Yarn Along!
However, my ulterior motive for this dress has not panned out. I bought this yarn originally for a blanket for my sister-in-law when she said she wanted yellow for her first child. Then when it turned out to be a girl the colors changed to pink and brown and I was stuck with a whole lot of yellow, fingering weight, baby yarn. I thought if I made a dress that should be made out of something thicker it'd use it up. As you can see...it didn't even make a dent in one skein, much less the other four.
I need a new project.
I think I'll survive.
For reading it's pretty simple: I haven't. I've cleaned. I've knitted. I have not read. My book club is coming up and we are reading "Attachments" by Rainbow Rowell. I was super excited by this because it's finally a book that isn't depressing or about a post-apocalyptic world which has been our theme for the past few meetings. But I've just learned I have a military meeting I have to go to on book club night. It has taken the wind out of my reading sails. Sigh.
At least I have extra baby yarn.
