Day 8

It seems that I have a pattern here. 2 days in a row for the last 8 days of the same color. I will have a color change for the next 3 days. Tomorrow it is supposed to get considerably colder and Sunday I will be traveling. On travel days, I have a specific color that I will be using on those days! 


 Isn’t it fabulous!! I can’t wait to see how it works up!!

I’m also an admin for a new group called “Crochet Around the World”. We’re going to create afghans to donate to charity! Pretty freakin exciting!!!

I’m also going to be working on a new afghan project of my own. Going to make a temp afghan for each of my kids for their first year of life!! I’m off to Michaels to stock up on yarn to make said blankets!!


Day 6

It’s the same temp today as it was yesterday and will be for the next 3 days…a lot of pumpkin in my crocheting future. I will need to get another skein of this color fairly soon! Surprisingly, Hobby Lobby doesn’t carry red heart, so I’ll have to run to Joann to get another. I really don’t want to go to Walmart…lol. So, same old same old. 

Day 5


 I guess it’s a good thing we don’t have a lot of temperature variability, but it’s kinda boring…lol

Still, enjoying this project! Also, I’m going to have to get more pumpkin yarn! Oh my!!  

Can’t deal

2015 everyone was flipping out and getting butt hurt over every little thing. Yup, I played my part in this…even against my better judgement…red cup, anyone? And evidently, it’s not politically correct to say merry Christmas, except that it IS politically correct to say it and whenever I said happy holidays, I was promptly corrected that I should be saying Merry Christmas. Except that it wasn’t CHRISTMAS…it was a week after Thanksgiving…

Today, I see 2 anti-Muslim posts by friends of mine…one was bitching about house resolution 569 which condemns violence and hate speech against Muslims. The ranter said, “can you f#%*ing believe what our House just passed?” And the other post was about “teaching about Muslims in schools and how it must be the PC thing to do and our American kids don’t need to know such things (like what kinds of clothes Muslim people wear…apparently, clothing and culture aren’t things we want kids to know about or something? I don’t know…)

Nevermind that 15 years ago I was teaching peace in the Middle East to 7th graders when I used to teach. Nevermind that in order to understand the conflict, you need to know the history of the conflict and unfortunately, part of the conflict is religion. But what do I know? 

In Denver not too long after the Paris attacks, a bookstore called “Isis” was defaced. Isis is an Egyptian goddess…but people don’t particularly care and vandalize because they are ignorant and happily so. Not just that, plenty of backlash against Muslims all over the country. 

I’m just over it. I’m done. I can’t deal with the racism, the xenophobic behavior, the hate. 

I’m over it. Over it all. 

Day 4

I did end up frogging my work and restarted it using hunter green as the border. I’m enjoying this pattern and how it’s turning out. Looking at a possible color change tomorrow, which I’m very excited for!!

Day 3 temperature afghan

Today, we saw a color change…no such luck for tomorrow, as forecasted. I’m really excited to see how cool this thing is going to be! I almost feel like I should frog it and get a different base color to use for edging later…it was a lot of work, but it didn’t take too long…I don’t know. 

I’m going to Joann today anyway to use a 60% coupon, so I may pick up a different color skein to use as the base/border color…I will keep you updated!
