Fleece "Quilt"

We had some more fleece scraps and I had some nervous energy so.....another fleece blanket was born.

this one turned out better than the blue/green one I made, but somehow I love it less for it's perfectness. Weird.

The Yarn Predator

The fierce yarn predator.
Do not be deceived by his adorable nature.

My Rainbow Ripple Afghan was moving happily along, until the above cat, my Bandit, got into my yarn. And I'm snowed in. Can you think of a worse situation for a yarnoholic on a mini-jag? So now I'm stuck with all the other projects which seem less enchanting, and no yarn for the Ripple, until the snow clears up a bit.
And as I write this, it begs the question - why do yarn fanatics even have cats? it seems to be a common thread among us. we like yarn, cats like yarn. so why keep them around to tangle up and snarl the yarn we hold so dear? I don't know for sure, but I bet it has something to do with that second picture up there.

A yarny resolution

I was reading Lucy's post about stash busting at :

Then I read this post over at Green Apples:

And I thought to myself : Self, I think a resolution is in the works here. Not only should I stash bust, and buy only patterns that I would buy completed in the store, but I NEED to finish all these WIPs I have going. I have four going actively at the moment, I don't even want to know how many are hibernating.

Rainbow Ripple Afghan (using Attic24's Neat Ripple Pattern)

Lacy Panel Jacket for me

Autumn Lapghan for grandma

Plus there's one more, but I can't show it yet because the recipient reads this.
So there, I now have a yarny resolution for 2010
