Colorful crochet blanket, hexagons with rainbow centers and white borders, unfinished wip by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

::WIP or UFO?::

Isn't crochet jargon kind of funny? I have been pondering the difference between a WIP (work-in-progress) and a UFO (unfinished object). Maybe they are supposed to be synonymous, but I have decided to categorize them in my brain this way:
  • WIP: A project that I have begun and I WILL actually complete--one day.
  • UFO: A project that I have begun and I CAN'T DECIDE what to do with it. I have lost the...

Rainbow of colorful yarn in wicker shelf, Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

::It's Raining Wool!::

I went to the yarn store last week to pick up a single--repeat, SINGLE--skein of yarn to finish my Pointillism Posie and decided to use the customer scanner to see if it was on sale.

Have you ever had those moments of intense gratitude for your blessings?  The kind of feeling that literally makes your hair stand up or your skin tingle? I had one of those today.

That actually sounded funny in my head. I have a little thing for a little different color, every day...

Perched precariously on the arm of the sofa, my 5 year old boy in his tighty whities swings his arms above his head, leaps off the edge aiming for the adjacent sofa and yells, "Trabonabo!"
