Death and Taxes
Thankfully no death, but there are the taxes looming over my head! I asked my husband in January if he could get organized and put all his receipts into his book keeping program by the end of February. Well here we are at the beginning of April with nothing from him. I hate to nag, but I would really like to get this done! My part is easy, his part is his own business stuff. At this point I may teach myself quickbooks to get the taxes done! Arg!
On the knitting front... well and crochet this week too. I finished two blankets and knit two adorable little fruit hats!
I am totally trying to use up my acrylic stash, but I swear it makes more of itself when I am not looking! I took all the little balls from every project and crocheted a row! It seemed to take forever, but the stripes look pretty good I think. The square is all the bulky yarn I had in my stash. I have quite a bit of baby yarn and fingering/sport weight. I may do a bit of knitting for the preemie Charity in order to use the yarn and send it away. I hate to have yarn that won't be used. If anyone asks me... Oh I have some yarn to give you, do you still want it? Well yes of course! I can't say no! I haven't bought acrylic in years, but somehow it is still in the house! It is best for children and babies, so once made into some lovely items... to the children with you!
I have been wanting to make an apple hat for a while. I think my niece will really dig it so I tried this pattern from a Family Circle magazine a friend had clipped for me! Well It is a little small, so I will make another a bit bigger for Gracie. Then I spied some orange yarn and made a little pumpkin hat. A friend just found out she is due in October, so I will put both of these hats away for her. Then of course started looking at all the colors I had... I could make a blueberry one... a strawberry... Plus isn't there a berry hat pattern out there? I know there has to be a grape one too. Ahhh, the possibilities. She may get a whole fruit stand from me in the fall!
