I've made some executive decisions.
The happy dog picture must be something I can look at every day on the sidebar. Especially when I am forced to be away from the sweetness.
Making an afghan out of Alpaca Lite (Olive's Afghan) is just plain stupid when there is a cat and a dog in the house. The halo on the afghan looks like giant dust kangaroos. It's not done. It's warm enough. It requires that I vacuum daily. I will not be finishing it.
I don't right now have the attention span for EZ's Adult Suprize jacket. It has been frogged. I felt no remorse. It would be silly to "hold" the yarn until I'm ready for it again.
These two facts combined mean Babette the Two. I loved the way the first one turned out. I am constructing smarter after the first time around. I need an afghan for the summer (o.k. not so much.) Likely given the colorway of the new Babette, Mr. Sophanne will declare that he should have this one of more muted tones. That's fine.
Smarter assembly means doing the squares in the order of the pattern. Blocking the squares prior to sewing them together. Single crocheting rather than sewing them together and doing so as I go rather than making a big honkin' pile of squares and "hooking" rather than sewing the ends in.
Such a fickle knitter. There's some productivity on some lace. I am of the extremes.
