You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

One Down Two To Go

I am definately learning NOT to act on every "good" idea that comes into my head. Take this "Fun Fur".   Fun? ...not so much. It is the hardest yarn that I have ever worked with. I know why it has been referred to as "eyelash" yarn now. The tiny eyelash size little fibers that make it soft also make it impossible to work with. The little suckers get stuck and tangled as you try to knit or crochet. I got soooooo frustrated while knitting the darn thing that I almost threw it out the window. Instead I stopped , pulled it out and tried it in crochet. It really was easier especially with a large hook. Two more to go!  
A good friend called me today to say she would like to buy 4 scarves.  So, Judy I thought about it I came up with a fair price that includes material and the labor intenstity factor.  How about  $1,000  each.
Spell my name correctly on the check Please!

I think despite all the headache (I hate these yarns too) it turned out quite pretty. Perhaps it's something you can use to celebrate at one of the many breast cancer awareness events this fall? It'd be the perfect color to show your support!

I definitely have a project that I haven't finished...I put it down a year ago, and I'm a little more than halfway done. I just wasn't motivated to finish. It was supposed to be a gift for a friend, but once it's finished, I might just keep it for myself! And I've never worked with the eyelash yarns, but they look like I'd throw more than it out the window! XD

Like you probably are, I am a scanner, and when I am working away - other things become interesting - and so I jot down a note to write about or make it - and the list grows...

I'm working my way thru the many books and articles I've started [some from pre-computer days]

Thanks for the post :-)

Finally finishing said...

Hi Lynn, people ask me what I will blog about when I catch up with my unfinished projects...What? I will never catchup...I can always break out the unfinished photo albums and books/articles to read and recipes...etc....Have a great day.
