too long gone

i've been away longer than i would've liked. but it's been somewhat prductive. not necessarily in the fiber department, but in my mental health and the eneral cleanliness of my house - ugh!
getting caught up on my blog reading is just almost terrifying- YIPES!

i'm not going to add anything more, not right now, anyway. just popping in to say hi, and yes, i'm still here :)

science experiment

yes, i know it is thursday, but what the hay...
things i am interested in completing these past few days

i have been working on chase's baby blanket. i have about 15% of the actual blanket to go and will then need to border it

i also have a design in my head that i have been working out. it is a several step process, i'm finding ---- frog frog frog i'm very excited about it as well. a little hint: it requires fulling, so each re-working of the pattern takes a while. not to mention, it's not the cheapest yarn out there. so i don't really mind the slowness of it.

after putting the kiddos to bed yesterday i spent all my time working on getting the list out for the yarn swap. i didn't get completely done. but i'm heading back to that after i finish here. just trying to get better at making time to post everyday :). aren't you glad ?! :)

do you ever experiment on your children? WHAT?!? nothing harmful, just little tests...
yesterday, i was in my craft room getting a skein of yarn wound on my fabulous new yarn winder because i had made the mistake of setting it down and it became a jumbled mess courtesy of my 2 year old. "mo-om" i hear him calling..."where are you?" "where'd you go?" i hear his little foot steps getting quicker as he is making the circle of the house. passing the craft room without looking in and still calling, his voice fades and then returns again. again making the circle. then 3 year old brother joins in, for the entertainment of it, not desire for his mom. twice they circle the house together...even making it up the stairs and down again. i know this sounds horrible, but i just wanted to see what they would do. not yet hearing panic in their voices, i figure i haven't caused a need for therapy yet. much to my surprise, the search is over. no concern or worry for mommy, oh no, not these two. the next thing i hear - my 3 year old jumping around in the tv room shouting "We're free, we're free!" gee, they love their mom. *sigh* free from what? am i a complete ogre- well, no, that couldn't be. they have a great time watching shrek... hmmm. oh well, i did get 2 giant hugs when i walked into the tv room. so i ask my son, "what are you so excited about? free from what?" with the rotten, up-to-no-good grin only my Xavier can give, "oh nothing" is his answer.

pssst - to my phantom, i FINALLY mailed a very special RAOK off yesterday, in your name :) well, the phantom, that is

here a stash, there a stash

every where a stash stash!!

dawn asks the question, "What holds your hooks?"

well, i kinda have 'em all over the place. sorta organized.
my 'regular' sized hooks are in a pencil case, save the one i'm using that travels with me. it goes in this handy toothbrush holder (thank you holly).

mu tunisian hooks are in the ArtBin Hook and Needle Case my parents gave me for Christmas, which can be found at JoAnn's... they also gave me the ArtBin Needlework/Yarn Tote! chezcrochet has some excellant tutorials and such for tunisian. hooks and pattern books can be bought at Annie's Attic

my crochenit hooks are in a under-bed storage (along with projects i am ignoring... notice my 63 squares, well only about 13 or so)

all other hooks; afghan, cro-hooks, my TOTC hook, double ended hooks, cabled hooks.... they are in a drawer to a plastic oganization unit thingy.

not asked, but i'll answer anyway. "what holds your needles?"

my straight needles are in an old old case for brass welding rods, which i got from my Grandpa. and my cable hooks are in a tangled disaster in a canvas tote.

whew! i'm all linked out - and out of time.

help me!

okay, i have a million and 2 things to post about, do not fear ya'll, i've been keeping notes.

so what's this cry for help?
well, i have (seriously) probably 20-30 WIPs going. none of which are calling out to be done - using my oh-so-precious crochet time.
here is where the problem comes in, as if having 30 WIPs isn't a problem, i have a great idea for a design of my own rattling around. i've drawn it out and have some yarn that i think will be great for it----

do i behave like a good little girl and get some stuff done, or do i go ahead and start to work on this design, knowing that it could be fairly time consuming... ?
