In preparation for our outing to the Phillies, I thought I would start a project that my coworker and I had planned to knit together. It's a pattern from Sophie's Yarns for a little beaded bag. I think I reported on our excursion a hundred years ago. Anyway, you have to load the beads onto the yarn, 325 of them. So, I got right on that. Well, first I had to find a big eye needle. Then I had to find the yarn. Then I had to find the needle again, and trust me, with the craft room in the state it's in, that was like finding a needle in a haystack.
Over a year later, with thoughts of knitting with the coworker at a baseball game dancing in my head, I reunited the big eye needle, the yarn, and the beads. After I pampered one sick dude, I sat down to Dancing with the Stars (Apolo Ohno is so on my hump island.) and managed to get ONE bead on the yarn. The beads are too small for my bamboo yarn, which is shredding under the effort. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
