|Dorky picture of me that I cannot figure out how to rotate.|
This week I celebrated my birthday. I also celebrated finishing a really big project: the wedding ripple afghan.
|My dad wrote me a birthday message, also sideways...|
It took 8 skeins of Caron Simply Soft, and I used Lucy @ Attic 24's ripple pattern, which is absolutely lovely. I like that it does not have any ch increases in it, as the holes created have always been what I dislike about some ripple patterns.
Here is the ripple in all of its lovely ripply goodness:
|Ignore all the ends that haven't been woven yet. Please :)|
I'm also celebrating the end of the semester. This coming week I take my finals, turn in 2 research papers, and then freedom! I'm looking forward to free time, even though it will mean lots of cleaning. But it will also mean more reading time too! (I have a stack of books to read- to see if they are worthy of remaining in my collection).
Here's a look at my birthday haul:
On the right is a photo album with a old world map print, and the far left is a Freeset bag from Better Way Imports, both from the parentals.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the week- finals, Idina Menzel Concert, WEDDING!!!
