Crafty Rantings

I'm Crafty. I Rant. These are Crafty Rantings!

Last weekend I went to Reno with my friend/adopted brother David. I thought I would relax and crochet or knit on the way there and back and in my room. Nah. And I haven't done much this week, either. I am working on a scarflet and a washcloth. I did finish one washcloth which I believe will go out in a swap in another week or so.

I have however done some purchasing. I bought "Crochet Patterns for Dummies" and "Knit Patterns for Dummies". Besides patterns they go over techniques and basics and it's a good combination that I think probably is better than my copy of the still-in-storage "Knitting for Dummies".

Then I went to Annie's Attic and purchased this thing they call a Knit Kit. It's a gadget which is supposed to have pretty much everything you need - row counter, tape measure, crochet hook, folding scissors, stitch markers and other things. It's very compact and "Creative Knitting" had a good picture of it so I blew $20 and bought one. I hope it's here next week and I'm not disappointed.

I need to make a list of projects I want to work on. I want to make a triangle scarf for my friend Vicky for her birthday but just can't get motivated. I have about 3 weeks to do that. I need to get going. Temperatures are over 100 every day which means basically all I want to do is sit and do nothing, even WITH air conditioning!

I have no pictures yet because they're still in my camera. I am going to try today to finish the washcloth and work enough on the scarflet that I can get it done in the next week. It's not a big project but it is warm. Then I will work on the triangle scarf. I am not really in the mood to knit OR crochet.

I can't wait for winter!
