Ugh! Returning to work and school after a long break is tough on everyone. I'll be glad for the weekend!
Still working on the basket weave scarf too; I've been inspired by my friend Laura's blog to try something new, however. For my next trick: a handbag! Anyone with a great pattern, share the link! In the meantime, I'm cruising my usual yarn porn sites, like All Free Knitting Patterns, Knitty, and of course Ravelry. Love some of the ones I've found so far, especially the Noro yarn felted bags. So while I finish these two other things on the side I'm lusting for yarns and patterns. Sick, I know.
In other news, I may take up the old paintbrush again. Watercolor painting is very soothing, and there are some great tutorials out there too. We will see if I have room in my schedule for any more...between family, work, school, reading, exercise, and all things yarn, it looks pretty slim for Ol' Paint. Poor guy.
