A good day off from work

2:23 PM Posted In , Edit This 7 Comments »
Today was another day off from work for me and I enjoyed myself immensely! Dennis, Dad and myself took a little trip today over to Hobby Lobby in Morristown and I got myself 2 skeins of Patons Kroy Sock yarn in Cyan Stripes and 2 skeins of ILTC in Springtime Ombre. Love these colors they're starting to come out with for Spring! So bright and cheerful! There were tons of other colors I wanted to get really bad but I guess that will have to wait until another time. I really couldn't afford these, but I just couldn't help myself. *sigh*

Oooooh take a gander at my bell pepper sprouts! They sprouted after only 5 days of planting! I meant to take a pic sooner, but I finally remembered today to do it! I'm going to have lots and lots of pepper if I can get them to live after I transplant them to a bigger container!

It turned out to be quite nice here today! Although the breeze made it a little bit chilly at times. I think the rest of the week is calling for rain. But we'll see.

Hope everyone had a Happy Monday!

Wow, after only 5 days! And none of the seess we have put out have sprouted. Crud! I love the yarns, the colors are amazing. I had no idea there was a Hobby Lobby in Morristown!

I'm so envious of crocheters. I have no idea how to crochet and find it impossible to learn from books!

I was reading in Craft magazine about crocheted washcloths (this scrubby circular pad) that does dishes without soap due to the acrylic microfibers. But you can add some soap to crack down on grease. Very cool stuff.

Good luck on your Hey Teach cardigan! I also really like your plants. :)

It's so nice to find a crafty blogger in my neck of the woods! You've inspired me to start some veggies in a container garden. Good luck with all your fiber arts.

Does it count if I grow my veggies in my AeroGarden? Another trip to HL, you're building quite a stash!
