Weekend Update 10-23-11

T'was a good weekend. Usually after a weekend I don't feel like I accomplished anything. This weekend was different.

Saturday morning we helped my mom move her stuff from storage back into her apartment ... long story.

Sunday D's parents brought down some wood for the wood stove. They own a lot of land in NH. He went up last weekend to help chop so that was our reward. They stayed for early dinner, was a nice visit.

Fishy got a heater for his tank. He seems very happy. A tropical fish is not so happy with October New England temperatures. We did break down and turn on the heat this weekend, but his tank was still too cold. Now I'm confident he can survive the winter.

I blocked Celaeno. This was a difficult one to block.

I am hoping it dries well. It doesn't seem to be opening up enough at the edges.

I found a sock I started a long time ago in my stash. I reclaimed the yarn. Washed it after Celeano. I think this yarn is better suited for a shawl.

Your shawl is beautiful. I love the beads!

What kind of fish is in the tank? It is hard to tell from the photo.

Celano looks lovely. Can't wait to see what you do with the reclaimed yarn!

If you started the sock a long time ago and never went back to it, then you're probably right - a shawl is the better way to go. Celeano looks lovely. The beads really pop now that it's been blocked!

I am all for restarting projects if you no longer like the original. Do you have a pattern in mind for the new shawl?

Oooo, pretty reclaimed yarn! I agree that should be a shawl.

Can't wait to see Celeano's beauty shots!!

ohhhhh red socks...always a winner.
Sometimes I cant get my head around what actually happened to the time on my hands...but I can recall if it was fun or not! Glad your shawl is blocked, I just love the beading
