I Used The Glue Gun Without Burning Myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure I'll have a prouder accomplishment all year--or a more surprising one.  I think I have a few fingerprints left.

Andy is gone for the weekend, so the kitties and I are having a crafting weekend.  With their help,
 I finished the first project of the year.
The colors are a bit more subdued in real life, but I don't know how to reduce the intensity of this cell phone's camera.  I also cut some more strips for other projects, and wound another Hank from Hell:
 A couple years ago I bought some Feza Rio that was on clearance, and for a cashmere/merino blend, it's not at all soft, and until this yarn, I didn't know one could hank yarn badly, but there does seem to be a way to do it so unevenly that permanent kinks are put into the yarn, and if that weren't enough fun, rather than being normal human beings who tie the ends into the threads holding the hank in place, these deranged maniacs tied the two ends together and snipped off the ends so that the only way to find them is to dig through the strands inch by inch.  And since it is a scratchy yarn, the rounds of yarn get caught on each other.  Probably serves me right for impulse buying yarn because it was on sale, but I'm rather hoping the current project doesn't require all 5 hanks. 

11 days down, 49 projects to go.  I can do this!
