For the past few days I have been down for the count. The sick stuff is going around already, and I got it bad. So my weekend (plus a couple of days) was spent nursing a pint of Purely Decadent Cookie Dough, popping Sudafed, drinking green tea, and watching mediocre shows on Netflix. Today was my first full day back at work in a week, and I had lots of catching up to do.
But that’s not the only thing that happened over the weekend. Ryan’s shop Spielen opened bright and early on Saturday morning! I am so proud of him for taking a big risk and doing something he’s wanted to do for quite some time. The Hays Daily had a great article on it tonight — on the front page, no less!
Yesterday I did feel well enough to work on a bit of crocheting — a stash-busting blanket, no less. I thought it would be a granny square blanket, but then I realized it would take over 1000 squares to make it the size I wanted. So now I am doing rows of granny squares separated by rows of single crochet in matching colors. To be honest, I have no idea how the thing will turn out. I might finish it and decide I don’t like it. At least I haven’t spent any (new) money on it, since all the yarn is what I’ve had on hand for the last five years. And if anything — it will be warm! I promise pictures in the next post, ok?
