Nothing exciting has happened in the last week, other than I started another doll for my nephew's little girl. I even tried to write the pattern down as I was making it. I tell yas, it's a slow process. Even with just writing k1, k2 takes away from the needles.
I have the doll made minus the face. Right now working on a little dress/pant. I am just too lazy to make underpants and then a dress. This dress looking pants are fine. After that I will make a little jacket, and then the face. I should be done...the operative word here is "should", by Monday.

I have spent most of today organizing different yarns. Hubby and I went to get some boxes from the locker room, five to be exact. It was time consuming, but fun work. Why didn't I sort the yarns when I was putting them in those boxes, I will never understand. Never is such a definite word, I think I understand now, I was in a great big hurry when I was clearing the extra bedroom which I needed for our guests a few years ago. So, you can imagine that the yarn in the boxes isn't from this year or last year. I even found a receipt from a yarn store that was dated in 1998. Oh, and then there were some yarns from waaaaaaaaay back when I did my first afghan, and that was in the 70's. I did my next one just a few years ago. I'm not really an afghan maker. I will make one, if I have to, but out of mere pleasure, no.

I can only imagine what is in the 30 other boxes that are in the locker room. I don't think I need to buy any new yarn ever again. What a neat idea.

I think you have me beat on yarn! I thought I had a lot, but 30 boxes!! I have yarn stored in every empty space I can find and yet it always seems when I'm doing a project I still have to buy more. Oh well, that's part of the fun.

As you know, I had 3 stash sales last year and am getting ready for another one in a couple of weeks. But somehow the more I get rid of, the more I find to replace it...and my taste is much more expensive than when I was buying yarn at $1.44 day at Woolco!
