Sam was dedicated to getting some catnip mice done to sell on consignment. The goal was 50. She lost count of how many she's done, but a few days ago it was this many:
After a few more days of mice mice mice, the need suddenly arose for an afghan, as such needs do. A quick Ravelry search pattern produced this pattern (can we take a minute to love on Ravelry? Ravelry, you are the coolest and we love you) which is exactly what she needed: something cozy, pretty, and will knit up fast. The weather even cooperated: it's been cool enough in the evening to knit an afghan in the summer without wanting to rip your skin off from the heat.
Exactly as the pattern promised, it's going quickly! Although Sam did run out of the first color of yarn she bought, which left only one option: ombre stripes. Oh yeah.

Sam can't wait to share pictures when it's done, which will hopefully be by Monday (if her hands don't fall off.
Liz has been so socially active lately with birthdays, showers, and wedding planning that the only crafts she's been doing have been for the wedding - and, for shame, she hasn't been taking pictures.
|Luckily, here's some evidence of social engagements - Rachael's bridal shower! Rachael is getting married 4 weeks after Liz and they are both bridesmaids in each other's weddings.|

What are your plans for the weekend? Baking? Creeping on cats? Wedding festivities? Derby? Crafting? We want to know! Enjoy it, whatever you do!
(Editor's note (from Sam): Soooo..... if you read our blog through a reader, you might have noticed a weirdo post earlier this week. Yeah, I have too many blogs and accidentally put a draft in this blog that should have gone in my personal blog . I deleted it, but it still came through my feedly, and Liz's, so maybe yours too. Anyway, so sorry for the confusion!)
