Absorba is finished

i finished it, it looks good, in my opinion. i'm not 100% happy with my color choices but they'll do. you also can't even notice where i changed my cast on method - which is great!

I ordered my double worsted from here. i chose white, ecru and light green as my colors. but in retrospect i should have used the peacock instead of the light green... oh well it still serves it purpose as a bathroom rug. maybe i'll just have to make another one sooner rather than later :)

here's a photo:

in other news, it's cold... it's looking like the weather should warm up a bit by the end of the week. but that's not soon enough.... as it NEVER should have dipped this low in the first place... all the pretty spring flowers died and look horrible now... those are important to help lift us out of the winter funk that i so suddenly sunk back into this week...

i also totally forgot that today was story time until seriously two minutes ago at 9:43 am... sorry annie and marcus!

i have to work out of the house tomorrow at a professional HR expo. hopefully i will meet someone or someone(S) there who will need our services and this won't be a complete waste of time... wish me luck, i'm a little nervous...

other than that.... i haven't cooked a damn thing that was actually worth blogging about in forever, i don't see it happening anytime soon. i need to clean my house up a bit and i'm still combating that damn mt. laundry... does it ever go away? can anyone tell me how to make it go away on its own? are cats trainable? i really really hate the thought of doing more laundry....

until next time

Looks good! Maybe I'll get to see it in person at KNS. I'm about halfway through Absorba and am picking up stitches using a crochet hook, because it was too difficult with the needles, so I'm curious to see how you did it.

We missed you at story time! I didnt know if you would make it or not since it has been a few days since I have "talked" to you. We almost didnt make it either. My mom came (of course) she got stuck in traffic and we barely made it on time. See you Thursday!

I think it looks very good, and I like the colours too. It looks so soft...
