I (un)Made It Monday

Remember that beautiful crochet project I was working on a while ago? The orangey sunset one?




The one where I knew, just absolutely knew that I would need more yarn to complete? Guess which one I can no longer work on because the store where I bought the yarn discontinued carrying it?

So very frustrating, my friends, to be in the middle of a project and not have enough yarn to finish it. Oh, I'm sure I could order it online somewhere...but that's not the point.

Because, I'm impulsive, see. And my level of spontaneity correlates directly with my level of frustration. So I end up with something like this before I even realize it.

Admittedly, it was kind of satisfying to pull the entire thing apart.


There is a new project in the works for this yarn, but as it is a gift, like many of my other projects at this time, and thus cannot yet be revealed.

On a side note, guess whose family is already getting sick of my impromptu bursts of Christmas music? And the stack of Christmas movies sitting by the DVD player? They just don't understand that when I'm in a gifty making mood, I need a gifty making environment to encourage my creativity!

  1. That is a gorgeous yarn! What a shame to have to unravel it, but on to bigger and better things I say!

  2. Well that sucks that they stopped carrying it.
    On a separate, non-supportive note, I'm with your family. You can't seriously expect anything other than justifiable rage if you're playing Christmas anything in August. Who are you, a department store?

    1. For the most part, I only do the Christmas stuff when they are at school and work so they are mostly safe from my insanity. Scott is very much in agreement with you. Sometimes it's like we don't understand each other at all! :)

  3. I would've done the same thing. Then someone would've found the yarn and given me some the next day.

    As for the Christmas music, less ho ho ho, more ho's. Listen to gangsta rap instead. I'm sure they'll like that MUCH better. :)

    1. You know, I can totally see you doing that. I did give it a minute's thought before hand, debating whether I thought the store would start carrying the yarn again. But in the end, my impulsiveness won out.

      As for the gangsta rap? Umm...yeah...I can barely deal with non-gangsta rap...I would be the one going all ragey and where is the fun in that?

    1. Thanks. I had such high hopes for it. But the new one is just as equally pretty and awesome! I'll have photos eventually.
