I have been thinking about my knitting and reading goals a lot the past couple of weeks. I am really pleased with my "make more" monthly goal, although I already feel like I am behind!
Last week I said that I was planning on knitting one item and making another something - whether that is a sewing project, needlework, even coloring in one of those adult coloring books. My priority is to complete two projects.
I don't have a list of projects that I plan to make, instead focusing on what I am working on right now. Right now, it is a scarf using the lovely yarn I received from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas.
I haven't had an enormous amount of time to work on it, but I have made some progress and I am pleased with how it is turning out. Perhaps I should take the advice of one of my readers last week and make it into a cowl by sewing up the end! That would certainly make it a faster project. It is a fun pattern though, and I am enjoying knitting a few rows here and there.
My book this week - well this is one that seemed to be all over the place last year. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I am almost done with it. I have to say it is a very quick read, which is nice. Although some of what she says makes no sense to me (saying thank you to my clothes before getting rid of them), it is definitely motivational. It has sparked a new resolve in me to purge my house.
I talked about doing a whole house purge in my post Welcome to a Brand New Year of Loving Life, so I was already planning to purge my home. But, this book has made me reconsider some of the items that I already had put out of my head as definite keepers. I really would like to evaluate all the items in my home to find out if they spark joy, or if they really do not need to be kept. Everything from old wedding invitations to text books that we really do not need to keep, to old notebooks that I have half filled out with lists and other random information.
I'm definitely excited! Now, to convince my kids to join me, that will be the next step!
What are you working on this week? Do you have a favorite organizing book?
