Good morning, and I'm so glad March is finally over! It is certainly going out in grand style this year. It seems like it has been raining forever. It rained again all day yesterday, and while it was pouring rain all through the night, it was also snowing. This morning everything was coated with a layer of white slush. Yuk!! To make matters worse, it is still raining!
Last night after the Mrs was tucked in for the night, I worked on my new crochet project again. As much as I tried, that lacy portion of the pattern finally proved to be too confusing for me so I ripped it all out and made an adjustment that works out better for me.
Sad to say, I just don't have the patience for a pattern that takes me two hours to put on one row. It would not have been so bad, but I could not understand how to even start the second row of that lacy portion. This new pattern will work up faster and be just as pretty.
This morning, Kyra sent me some new links for craft blogs that offer patterns. My favorite link was the Red Heart link. I use that brand of yarn a lot, and they offer some wonderful patterns. I'm sure Kyra won't mind if I share that link with you. http://www.redheart.com. Enjoy!!
I guess the one good thing about all this rain is that it is a great time to be crocheting. And the weight of the yarn on my lap keeps me warm. It's a win win project. And it's fun. And I already have my next project picked out. Oops, I'm getting ahead of myself!
Sometime this week, I'm hoping to get over to Sears and buy myself a treadmill. Just a small one that folds up when I'm not using it. It's probably the only way I'm going to be able to get some decent exercise, and I can stop whenever I need to.
Well, that's all my tidbits for this morning. Till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and dry and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
