    Crochetville Brand Yarn????

    Oh..............fingering weight in wool blend for socks, and in acrylic for baby items as my first choice(s). Do some wearables in DK but rarely use worsted anymore.

    Oh...........gingerbread smells awesome! I NEED COFFEE. I worked until 2:45am, read until 3:45am. Almost got up to finish working as I could log back onto work server at 4:00am but just too tired. Got up at 7am and logged on to work/finished. I'm vertical, my eyes are open, but don't think my brain is on alert yet. Skipped working on scarf yesterday and picked up baby blanket I had in the car. It will be an 18" diameter hexagon. That's the size that our NICU likes for their Empty Arms Program. Must get back on track with scarves though for this project weekend. Also have a donation for the Food Bank to deliver, toothbrushes/toothpaste. I have been collecting toothbrushes from dental visits, and buying small tubes of toothpaste and a few extra brushes when on sale or with coupon. They try to keep some personal items on their shelves as well. After visiting them and getting a tour of the facility (filled out application to pick up donated food from various stores/locations and deliver to food bank) my eyes were opened to the increased need in my community.

    I was trying to that group of knitted scarves done before starting this charity weekend. I will start out fresh in the morning. I have cast on for another knit scarf but may frog it as I crochet faster. Sometimes I just like the way knitting shows off a variegated yarn better than crocheting. Have been working hard to complete the last steps on a few projects so I can work on just new scarves. Yes, I got those pesky tails tucked in.

    Oh, reprieve! Now I don't feel so guilty about waiting until the end of the project.

    Why do I always put off tucking in tails as I go? As much as I hate it you'd think I'd learn to do it as a I go along. Sorting more yarn to work on scarves.
