In the middle of all busy schedules and Christmas chaos it’s nice to have one nice chill out day at home and hibernate on the couch. We had one last Saturday. For us, most of the time it’s hard to just chill out at home in our free time and do nothing. Unless we have company over. That’s one of the biggest reasons why we often pack our bags and head out somewhere else for vacation and long weekends. It’s too easy to fall back to work mode. You know, all it takes to get us off the wagon is one little phone call or email. Well last Saturday was a good exception. It felt really nice to hung out and relax at home.
So this what I was up to last Saturday. I’ve been wanting to make another throw pretty much right after I finished my first one. It’s been over a year now and this really started burning in my head that I wanna do one before Christmas. I started searching soft but big and chunky yarn with a good price (of course). And after a long search I found some on Amazon. I’ve never ordered anything from there so it took me a while to get around it. But when I really couldn’t find it in the nearby stores or for a reasonable price in other online stores I ordered a bunch of yarn from there.
Two or three hours later after I got started – I realized that I needed more yarn. So this throw is not completely done yet but I think I got a good start. I already ordered more yarn and I’m hoping to get it soon. I took 8 hanks (rolls) to get to this point and I ordered 5 more and I think that should do it. I a kind of hope there would be some left over for a scarf or something. Will see!
Last but not least. Do you know how you are going to set up dinner table this year? Later this week I’m posting Christmas table setting #1. I’ve planned two this year and I’m actually really happy how they both turned out. Stay tuned!
