Just wondering if anybody has anything special going on this weekend?

Do you think you will find time to work on your knitting, crocheting, spinning, etc?

I hope you have a great weekend.

Hi Martha! Nothing special is going on this weekend.  Dh was called into work last night and just went back in again.  I have been working on ruffle scarves for a friend who is a photographer, one as a gift and I have at least three more to make. So I need to get one on the needles today.  I have a crocheted dishcloth on my needles that I would like to add a few rows to.

 I have been spending lots of time looking at crafting blogs and dreaming of the next project....but I am trying to focus on finishing up all current WIPs first.  Then there will be baby shower gift crocheting and knitting as well as a Tunisian CAL.  I need to start practicing the stitches and get the magazine before it begins on the 20th of next month. 

How about you? How is your weekend going?

Not much going on for me this weekend.  Worked this morning.  Putzing around the house this afternoon. Will go to church in the morning, maybe go grocery shopping.  Will find some time to work on the grandbaby's afghan but I doubt that I get it done before she arrives.

When is she due? My granddaughter, Haley, was born on the 15th. I didn't make her an afghan. I need to make both of my granddaughters one.

Having problems with the boards again. I went to an SF convention over the weekend, and they had a two-hour "panel" on yarncrafts. (No, there's no real connection but sitting and listening to authors is a great time to do quiety yarny stuff, and a lot of us do.) So I brought my spinning, someone else was making sewn lace, someone showed off her giant knitted doily and we talked knitting & crocheting. Later my daughter bought me "Crafts with Cat fur: Fun things you can make with your cat" in the dealer's room. Actually the book was a bit of a disappointment -- nothing about spining, but all felting. Didn't look at the author's name until it mentioned "seaweed tins" as a good place to store brushed fur.)

I was playing with one of my Phat fiber samples, and tried out the "fractal spinning" technique from my craftsy class for the first time. (The fractal part went well, but it was such a small sample that I spun it VERY thin, and that was rather difficult to work with).
