Midnight Madness


No wall work yesterday. The Mister slapped a new coat of joint compound on the latest hole so we had to wait for it to dry. We raked leaves and I gathered wood for my fire pit. I even split a little bit of it although it was way too windy for a fire. 

While The Mister watched football I finished weaving in the ends on Festive Doodle. It's finally done. It doesn't even look like it needs blocking so I think I'll give it a few wears before I give it a bath.

Not having much to knit right now is making me antsy so I did something stupid. In a moment of midnight madness I found this on Ebay and bought it. It's a needlepoint kit. I've never needlepointed a thing in my life but that never stops me from buying stuff.

Even though I knew nothing about crewel I bought this crewel kit last year and had high hopes but the kit was so vintage it was hard working with the material and the yarn. It was made in 1974 and looked every minute of it's 46 years. It was practically shredding in my hands. 

This new kit is only seven years old so maybe, just maybe I might have something new to play with this winter. 


  1. Congrats on Festive Doodle. Bonus that you don't have to block it.

    You might need it today. It is cold and windy here. I'm guessing it is where you are too.

  2. A break from the wall is probably a very good idea! The sweater on its maiden wear is a great thing! Hope the new needlepoint kit will work out for you!

  3. Yay on completeing Festive Doodle. Can we see you wearing it?
    New projects will be fun. I can imagine how bad that yarn was with such an old kit.
