Yarn Along: Tying Up Loose Ends

A few days ago I finished the interminable seed-stitch blanket. It's washed now and ready to be put in my hospital bag. I also made a quick knit hat to go with it.

I just haven't been able to get in the mood for any knitting or crocheting. Such a shame, because I have all the time in the world and a good reason to sit/recline. Oh well...

Last night I picked up Word Freak by Stefan Fatsis. I've only read it about four or five times so I don't have it completely memorized. It's getting harder and harder to find things to read. My interest level is declining in just about everything.

One thing reading it has done is revive my flagging interest in Scrabble. Since Father won't play with me, I'm stuck playing on the computer (I have a cd rom version). I realized that it would be very easy to download it on the elderly laptop I'm using and play in bed and then take it to the hospital. I have to face I can't do my usual "have the baby and then get the heck out of dodge" move and will be stuck there for probably 3 days minimum. BORING. Maybe I'll use the unavoidable downtime to memorize the twos and start on the threes. :)


  1. beautiful blanket and cute hat! praying for you.

  2. Your projects are adorable! I really love the pink - you'd think with three little girls I'd be tired of pink but I still do love a good sweet pink.
