Prolific Prolifery

Things I made by candle light while snuggled under 57 blankets during our three day power outage (some of which are now available on my Etsy shop, dontcha know!):

A funky, lacy set of fingerless gloves for one of my Pay It Forward friends:

I kind of wanted to add glittery skulls...

This super cute plarn tote bag, complete with vintage button:

Hi ho, cheery-o!

And this wooly, awesome bag just waiting to be stuffed full of whatever it is we women absolutely *NEED* to carry around with us when we leave the house:

what the heck do we need all that stuff for, anyway?

Yesterday I found a grocery store that was closing, so everything was half off:

store closing = I will buy ALL THE THINGS for 1/2 off, thank you!

Which was good, because I also stopped to buy some yarn, which was *not* half off:

decidedly NOT half off. Good thing I saved on that yeast!

I got enough for three projects:  one custom Etsy order, which you’ll be seeing shots of later in the week, and two mystery projects, which I’ll save for later.  Here’s what the rest of the week looks like in HAPPYlandia:

Wednesday: Custom Order Shots

Thursday: Cupcakes!

Friday: Free Pattern Friday: fingerless gloves of fun

…and that’s what happens when you can’t shower, do laundry, wash dishes, or really do any meaningful chores for three days!…

I Don’t Want to Talk About It.

Attaching my delicious circles (https://ahappyone.wordpress.com/2010/08/13/circle-gets-the-square/) proved to be a bit of a challenge.  First I  laid them all out & chained the ends together like this:

Next Step, this:

It looked great right up until the point where it started looking like death:

So I tried this, which also looked like death:

And this (deadly, deadly death):

Next came this (which, oddly enough coincided almost exactly with a dramatic decrease in productivity):

And finally:

Aaaaaaahhh.  So neat.  So tidy!  So delightfully easy to hook together! So… rectangular.  *ahem*     I ran out of yarn & haven’t gotten any more yet, so you’ll just have to wait to see what the finished product looks like.  Happy Tuesday!  })i({
