The Beginnings of a Hacky-Sack

Hello my friends! Just a little bit of news about my personal situation. Still dating casually, haven't clicked with anyone enough to date consistently yet, but that is really a good thing for right now. I've never just dated; I always went from one relationship to another. This is truly a nice change.

I got approved for help with housing! I am so excited! Now it's just a matter of waiting for availability. Waiting is so hard for me. I am NOT a patient person! LOL

Last night I was up and down throughout the night coughing & with a sore throat; fun-fun. I was told that it was probably because the pollen count is so high here right now. Maybe, who knows. I just hope whatever it is, it's over soon!

Since I didn't get much sleep last night, I'm feeling pretty drug down today, so I'm just taking it easy. I had a request to make a hacky-sack for someone, so I'm crocheting one today. It's about time I got my hands working on something. I've been so preoccupied lately that I haven't taken the time to knit (or crochet) at all. Here's my progress so far....

I am using the free crochet patter I found HERE on Dorf's Dismal Diary.

So far so good, and I am loving the color! Having my hands in yarn always makes me feel better too!

I think about my bloggy friends alot. I sure hope that you are all doing well. I miss you & love you all bunches!

That hacky sack is adorable! I love how colorful it is.

Glad you're doing well ... my mom always said you can never be happy with someone until you're happy by yourself. :o)

Thanks Theresa! I picked out that yarn specifically for the hacky sack. I had always seen them being very colorful and thought that yarn was perfect!

Your mom was right, and I am finally learning to be happy with myself! I love it!

Have a great day hun! :O)

Hello SP! I am so terrible, I really need to get into the habit of posting the yarn brand & colorway, but alot of times I am using stash scraps & have long-since lost the ball band with all the info! I do know that this particular yarn was bought at Walmart & it's Peaches & Creme & the color is Fiesta. You can also order it direct from online at http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/store-pc.htm

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, health & happiness,
Anita

Thanks for stopping by my blog too. :) I went to the site, wow, the colors are nice! i will have to check out their international shipping. Originally threw out those labels too but started to keep them when I realised I had so many and needed to match the same types when I used different colors. Realised there aren't many multi-colored yarns here.
