Just Stringing Along

Yeah! The girls went back to school today, that break was way too long. They were so bored and yet didn't want to do anything I suggested. Goofballs. You know it's bad when Abby is watching the clock eager to go out to the bus stop. Once they were gone I got the house back into order. Finished up the laundry. Brought the last of the holiday decorations down from the attic. Then I made a cup of tea and strung some more popcorn. Ugh. Every year I swear I will never string popcorn again and ever year I can't help it. I love the way it looks on the tree and garlands.
I also had time to finish my first scarf. The directions said it would end up about five feet long and I'm a few feet short. And the binding into "bell ends" is still in process. I have no clue as to what the directions are telling me to do. To add to my frustrating and fun I started a scarf for Abby with the combination of yarn and fun fur. I bought twice as much yarn so her scarf doesn't come up short too. With Christopher not coming home tonight I plan on knitting and stringing popcorn late. Oh I live a wild and crazy life.

Would you stop already? You're making some of us feel as if we don't do enough! Seriously, what a pretty scarf. I'm jealous that you are actually making something. I can't think of anything I could make as gifts. Except cookies and breads of course!

Check out this post. I read her blog and she was a guest at this other site. Reminds us that a few less cookies are OK~
Love the scarf...so pretty!

You should put one of those big buttons on it and use it as a neck scarf. I'll send you a pic if I can find one.

Plus ditto what Paula said you are making me look bad!

I am in shock that you picked up knitting like that! That scarf is awesome! I lke the idea of a button!!! Hand knit scarves are by far the warmest!
