Ugh! I totally missed a YOP update last week!
Honestly, there are two reasons for that. First off, my ghetto neighbors have been stressing me out. Over four consecutive Saturdays, they’ve had giant parties on three of them. THREE GHETTO LOUD ASS PARTIES. It doesn’t help that they smoke tons of pot during these gatherings and that their current favorite party songs are “Bitches, Bitches, Bitches” and “Bitches Ain’t Nothing But Tricks and Ho’s” (these could be the same song…I have noooo idea). I’ve had to sweep up broken glass bottles, cigarette butts and beer cans on my property. They also like to have all of their family arguments outside on the front lawn or loud enough indoors/in the backyard so that everyone in the neighborhood can hear them.
“WHY DID YOU BREAK MY PHONE M****** F******? N*****, WHY’D YOU BREAK MY PHONE!!!! I’M GONNA TO KILL YOU!!!”
Seems like a legit conversation to have at 12:30am on a work night loud enough that all the neighborhood dogs started barking.
Stressed. Me. Out. Didn’t necessarily make me want to craft.
Second, when I did feel like crafting I worked on my 2012 Annual Dishcloth Swap dishcloths. Only 3 of the 5 dishcloths are complete, but I will update you on all that fanciness once they are all crocheted and labeled up. This year I’m using the Nubby Dishcloth pattern by Charlotte Richardson – simple but nubbilious!
But, as of yesterday or so, I finally picked up my Piper’s Journey again.
I was worried about this little girl for a while because I thought she was going to be tiny. I just didn’t feel like I was using up enough yarn. But then I got to the last 14 or so rows…these rows are so long, so, so long and eating up the yarn appropriately! I should be done with the body super soon. I only have a handful of rows left and then I get to start the knitted on border!!! And do you know what that means?
Get excited. I’m excited. The pattern doesn’t even call for beads! Don’t matter! I have a bead beader spinning thingy, beads and everything.
Shit is about to get fancy.
Oh! And for everyone that requested a tutorial on how I did my beaded crocheted edge on my LaLa’s Simple Shawl (Colorway 10)…I’m working on that. I totally haven’t forgotten about you guys. I’ve just never done a tutorial before and I don’t want to give you guys junk instructions.
