So yeah. I’m learning Russian. I don’t know for sure which will be easier; reading, writing, speaking, or understanding someone else’s speaking. Oh and printing the letters is a whole different story from writing them in cursive. Oh boy. In the last title, you’ll notice what looks like a lower case ‘m’. It’s not. It’s a T. Don’t ask lol.
Hubby cut off my head. I think the 8-year-old takes better pictures. I thought I’d finished up the second sleeve to CPRRL but I didn’t. I did, however, bind off the Pinwheel baby blanket, but it’s not nearly as big as I’d hoped. This after 3 skeins of the yarn. Perhaps next time I’ll use a heavy worsted or a chunky yarn. Those would make the blanket knit up faster and wider. It’s acrylic so blocking is basically useless, so maybe a few rounds of crochet will help it lay flat.
In other knitting news: I’ve cast on for X-back(on a crowded bus, no less!), and I’m about two inches in. I’m worried I’ll need a liner for the way it’ll stretch open in order for me to wear it. It could also be the yarn I’m using, Lion Brand Incredible. If this X-back fits but stretches open too much, then I’ll have to find a different yarn and try again(can you say Elann?). Speaking of Lion Brand, I just woke up from this crazy dream where I was in a big thrift store that sold lots of yarn and knit/crocheted sweaters.. And I’m running through the aisles with my 3 kids in tow, searching desperately for Fun Fur. My plan was to use it to decorate some Old Navy flipflops I got 2 for $5 the other day. lol. I woke up, rummaged my stash, thinking I’d actually bought some. I only have hot pink. lol. My flipflops are beige and black. So much for that.
Shave it all off. Almost. It was just getting too hot and having to pin it up at work all the time made it not so cute. And to think, these were extension braids. I don’t know how people with naturally long hair can deal with it. This way, it’s just so much quicker, spritz and go. In fact, it’s time for me to go. Later!!
