I had an itch yesterday morning to start a new crochet project! While getting packed up for the day (for the Vball tournament), I perused my "Favorites" list on Ravelry and found inspiration in "Spring-Lacy Ripples" (ravelry link | Bernat Free pattern). Of course, I didn't have ANY yarn for the pattern, but I added it to my queue.
While at the tournament, there was enough down-time between matches for me to get a bit of my schoolwork finished, and make up a few more Packer ruffle scarves for a craft sale MIL is participating in next weekend. I'm not completely done with my schoolwork, BUT.... there'll be time for that later today.
After the tournament, Cassie and I headed to a nearby town to do a little bit of shopping: a few odds-n-ends with groceries, some new shoes for her school days, and then... we hit the yarn section. Cassie picked out the colors; and naturally, she went "school pride"! Blue-n-Yellow.
Once home, after stopping at Papa Murphy's on the way, we all relaxed....FINALLY! Paul was still napping (even though it was 6PM). LOL. He helped out a neighbor during the afternoon, so had only had a few hours of sleep in the morning after arriving home from his night-shift.
But by 7PM, all of us were full from the pizza, and were sitting around the TV, watching Ratatouille, followed by The Incredibles. During that time, I started on Laker Ripples, named after our school's mascot.
I'm thinking I may actually head downstairs shortly to put a couple of hours in in the sewing room. Do some tidying; reorganize some projects that are scattered all over, and figure out what status I have Lazy Sunday, Bonnie's Quiltmaker mystery, in.
