HA!! Skein 2 is gone! I'm starting to wonder if I will actually need 11 skeins like the pattern says, or if they were "planning ahead in the event of" type thing. Who knows.
Yes, my wrists still hurt, the right one especially which has now moved into the joints in my fingers. Now that I'm home and it's warm and dry that incessant throbbing ache is lessened.
My work place can sometimes be temperature-ally challenged (I'm sure that is NOT a word, but you know what I mean). It is either chilly, cold and drafty, or downright freezing (sometimes downright freezing AND drafty). Just depends on what time of day it is and whether or not people are holding doors open to the inclement weather outside. I keep forgetting to pick up one of those little heater fans since I already know what's coming when winter finally does hit for real.
Anywho, here we are, one day before Halloween and it is official that this year's Halloween project will not be done in time, but it is EXCITING just the same! I keep thinking about how much money I'd like to spend at Picture This Plus over the winter and will have to see about putting aside a little bit every paycheck for that big splurge. I do believe that settles it! A ten here, twenty there and I will have a nice fat order in three months time!
Before I forget....one of the BEST things about this piece is the almost lack of backstitching! The witch, cat, Eek!, there will be a couple small bats and some barbed wire and a Boo.....that is it! Hurrah!
I'm done with Dean Koontz for now, and will have to find another wonderfully creepy audio book to stitch along to...or maybe get another Hamish Macbeth Mystery....decisions, decisions....
Until next time.....
