Yarn Along!

I decided to participate in the Yarn Along I've read about on several blogs. You can be a part, too. Stop by Small Things to read about it.

I'm working on adding hair to a doll I made for the Imp last year. It's a very slow process. He asked and I comply. I took him into the bedroom and let him pick any yarn he wanted from my stash for the hair. He made his choice without any hesitation. This kid always knows exactly what he wants.

I'm also still working on longies for the Beast. We're calling the yarn "Creeper" because it reminds B and the Elf of a monster in MindCraft (a computer game they play). I'm not getting very far very fast because I've been bitten by the Spring Bug. The windows are open, the sun is shining. I want to garden and clean. Of course, I'm not getting a great deal of anything done. My mantra right now is: baby steps!

As for reading, I gave up on the last parenting book I'd gotten from the library. So I'm indulging in a young adult book. Vampire Diaries: The Awakening by L.J. Smith. We're one episode away from being caught up with the television show (yes, guilty indulgence for after the kids go to bed at night). So far, I'm feeling old. Young adult books just seem so.. basic.. to me. Oh well.


  1. The hair is awesome!!!

  2. jenletts: It's okay, you can say it. The hair currently looks like a scruffy rainbow gnome beard. (:

  3. Hi dear,

    Welcome to the Grimy Hands Girls' Club. Goodies will be mailed out in about 10 days. We ask that you let us know how your complimentary seeds etc. do when you grow them.

    All best and joys,

  4. Oh I just love that hair to! I wish when I went to choose colors or fabrics I could pick without hesitation. I have to be the slowest person when it comes to choosing color combinations *grin*.

  5. Mindcrack? I can't get Jonathan off of it!
