But I did do something. So, this is more of a round up post than anything.
I'm continuing to work on the baby blanket...
It's probably about halfway done at this point. (Yes, I took that picture on top of the washing machine. There's a great light right there.) It's very warm. So, of course, I end up working on this on the warmer days. This week the forecast calls for upper 80s, so you know this is probably what I'm going to end up working on. Sigh.
Then another mask...
I cut out this fabric at the same time as the last mask I made. (I had a hankering for a red mask. Why? No idea.) I had intended to complete this at the same time as that last mask, but I ran into an issue.
I could not get a needle through this fabric. I spent a good hour trying to pull the needle threaded with the yarn through, and I only managed to get maybe three stitches done. So, thinking that it was a yarn issue, I switched to thread. Another hour, maybe five stitches done. At that point I gave up.
That night, while in bed attempting to fall asleep, it occurred to me that I had a fabric poking tool from when I put soles on some slippers. (The poking tool was to get holes in the faux leather I used.)
Then one day last week (I don't recall which day, maybe Monday, maybe Tuesday) I finally pulled the mask out again. I pulled out the poking tool. (An hour of searching on the internet did yield its actual name: awl.) And I made a whole bunch of holes.
I was able to get the needle threaded with yarn through. Hooray! And it didn't take too much time to complete from there.
And finally, another shark...
Because, why not? (Well, because Betty asked for one.)
The week wasn't a total wash.
