Startitis strikes again

I should be finishing my sweater. I should be working on the throw for Jose and Beatrice. I could be working on a design, but I have that no work after hours rule. 🙂

I should be doing these things. What am I doing?

I started Sean’s blanket. 🙁 I’m bad, I know. Really, someone should stop me.

But, I found that I have more than enough of two colors. So, his blanket will be in buff and black. There are 5 types of squares. I’m to make 4 of each one. My thoughts are either to do 2 of each type in black and 2 of each type in buff OR to try to do them all in buff and do the edgings and the joins in black. I guess it will depend on how easily I can see the cables in black. I don’t want to do all the work and have it not work, ya know? So we’ll see. Thoughts?

Anyway, off to work on it. Happy weekend!

Birthday preps

I just put the first cake in the oven. My goal today is to get all my baking/cooking done in time to be able to crochet some this afternoon. All I have left to do is bake the second cake when this one cools and I can take it out of the pan and then make my spinach and artichoke dip. I got all my cleaning done yesterday. 🙂

I have one more skull to make, I want to finish my prototype for my newest simple pattern and get it to the pattern tester I lined up. I also need to work on the other one. But, I will see that pattern tester on Wednesday, too, so I can give it to her then.

Right now I’m on hold to see if I have to teach tomorrow. I’m kinda hoping not since it’s a kids class and I am not thrilled about doing that in this setup. I’ll do it, but I prefer one on one for kids. There’s just so much for them to absorb and really hard to try to keep all of them focused on what we’re doing. Yay, no classes tomorrow. While that sucks pay wise, it does help me focus on the party setup and means I can go to the wedding with no issues next week. 🙂

Yum, that cake smells good. And yes, I’m making two. I’m making two sheet cakes and I’m going to stack them on top of one another to have one big cake. Why? ‘Cause it’s my birthday and I can. Well, that and we have like 12 people confirmed as coming. I didn’t want to do just a flat single layer of sheet cake and a double layered round cake wouldn’t be big enough. So, we’ll be eating cake for a while.

Okay, off to drink some more coffee and crank out another skull while I’m waiting. Happy Friday, y’all!
