Well, no fevers, thankfully. My youngest got sick and now I have something…coldish…stuffy ┬áin my sinuses. I took my allergy meds and have a nice cuppa coffee this morning to battle it. ;-)

Lots of stuff happening on the home front that kept me from blogging last week-I gave notice at my job (been there 8+ years, and with this boss for over 10) so I started getting things caught up/just right so I can train my replacement soon. We also have a big internal audit coming up so there’s a lot to do! I’m leaving for lots of reasons, but the main one is to be home for awhile with my family again.

Regardless, I got some tatting done last week and this weekend! I’m taking a break from the crochet projects (this vest and this vest) and Yei. It’s warm and sunny out and this thread color fits my mood. Spring=tatting for me and I have an obsession with doilies lately.

I found this awesome thread this week too! I can’t wait to use it on some massive doily, lol. I need to finish up a very old WIP and then I can dive in to this thread.

Artiste 100% Mercerized Egyptian Cotton size 10 crochet thread in Pewter, Terra Rosa; and Country Rose. I looove this gothic mix of colors.

I’m thinking of crocheting a big doily because it’s faster than tatting and I found a very cool pattern on pinterest. (More on that as I get to it.)

We have a different kind of March Madness around here-Netflix new releases! We’re into Game of Thrones season 5 on dvd, Daredevil Season 2 on streaming, then House of Cards season 4 and the Madagascar movies with the kids on dvd. We don’t have cable, we use Netflix pretty muchexclusively, not counting PBS on the rabbit ears. Gotta have PBS!

This means lots of yarn time for me, I can get a lot done while there’s a good show on. I’m a little more than halfway done with the Ninja vest and finally changed colors on the hooded vest. I think I’m 1/3 done then, with my yarn math. The project takes 3 skeins worth of yarn, I have used 1 skein. Thus, 1/3 done. Yarn math= truth. Years ago Ben gave me a head lamp for Christmas, not for hiking or camping but because he got tired of me trying to knit in the dark. ;-)

<achoo!> well, off to sit and tat for awhile. I’m hoping for a nice lazy day. Hope you have one too! Go do something you love, and hugh someone you love. Maybe give them a smooch or two.
