Total score
If you scored:
0-7 Well done, you are a sensible knitter.
Make sure you stay aware of how much you drink and look
out for your friends and family.
8-15You knit a bit more than you should, and
this could affect your health in the long run. Keeping a
knitting diary may help you to see how much you knit
and where you could cut down. If this doesn’t help,
visit a doctor for more advice.
16-19 You are a fairly heavy knitter, and
could be damaging your health. You should consider
visiting your GP for advice on how to cut down on your
knitting.
20-40Knitting is causing you to have health
problems and having a detrimental effect on other
aspects of your life and the people around you. You are
a very heavy knitter and should seriously reduce the
amount you knit. Visit your GP for advice. They may
then refer you to other sources of help and support in
cutting down on the amount you knit.

Now all of you that know me, you tell me if I answered accurately & how damn funny are some of the answers!!!

Progress pictures

I thought I would post some progress pictures (ehem, sp).

First the start of the Angelica sweater, I used hpy merino that was the last of the crack yarn in my stash but I just couldn’t get the gauge to work the way I wanted it to so I scrapped it & went to some Adrienne Vittadini yarn that I have in my stash

Next is the round rug for Sadie’s room redo~

Her room is going to be pink, white, black. The pink of this yarn is quite a bit more bright than I could get with my lighting. So here is the comforter that is coming soon.

I love it! Love it! Love it!

It’s a bed in a bag so you get all linens in the picture! Fantastic!

I will make the rug about 6′ in diameter. I am hoping the texture of the boucle yarn doubled will make it a bit like chenille once washed & I may even starch it a tiny bit but we’ll see how solid it comes out. I am using a worsted weight boucle cone yarn I got off ebay doubled on size 8′s. It’s pretty solid but still soft. I am doing random black and gray stripes through it also to bring it into the room decor even more.

At Target’s holiday clearance they had a ton of girly pink, black and fuschia items for $.25. Ribbons that I will use on her curtains, purses that I will decorate shelves with. Cut glass mirrored items. It will be very parisian and fun. I need to go find a really rad lamp at ross to go next to her bed! It will be very fun to do the whole room over. We are even painting her armoire and bed again. Whew! I sweat thinking about all the work involved but she is getting older and defenitely deserves it!

I am off to knit until George gets home from East Beach & volleyball. Then we’ll do some home improving junk!

Enjoy your Saturday!
