First up my progress with my "make more" goal for January. I was able to complete the cowl for Emma, as my one finished knit of the month. However, I did not make anything else. I was hoping to get some sewing done, but I need to buy some zippers and haven't had a chance to run out and get them, so I put the sewing aside. Then I thought I might do some coloring in my very cool Harry Potter Coloring Book, but I realized after I got that very cool coloring book that I need some very cool fine point markers in much more subdued colors in order to cover the amount of detail.
I did find another really pretty adult coloring book that is all about Bible verses, but that just came in the mail yesterday, so obviously it wouldn't work for January.
I hit a wall with my knitting progress. I was doing so well the past couple of weeks, and then, nothing. I finished up Emma’s cowl, went back and knit about 15 rows of my scarf, and haven’t picked it up since last week.
You would think when the weekend comes around I would have more time to knit, but you would be wrong.
For some reason, when the weekends come, instead of sitting down and relaxing with my knitting, I am running around like a crazy person trying to clean up the house because I have an extra set of hands to help with the kids (that would be my husband).
Honestly though, I think that most of my time is going towards purging and trying to go through the kids' stuff lately, so not so much knitting time.
I still have this lovely yarn that I bought in December. I knew that I had to buy it because it looks so pretty, but I still have no idea what I want to make with it. Do you have any pattern suggestions?
I am finishing up The Choice right now, and am really enjoying it, although it has entered the incredibly sad part of the novel, and I am hoping it bounces back. I’m also fighting the urge to turn to the end and see if it turns out OK. I was horrible about doing that when I was younger…and sometimes I still have to stop myself.
I am also reading Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington. I have seen so many people talking about it that I wanted to read it for myself. I am only a couple chapters in, but it is refreshing, and speaks to me in all the ways I like; “say no, figure out what is important to you, do that.” I think it is motivational to hear. I love to know it is OK to say no and that the world will not end if I decide to do something different.
What are you working on this week? Any new books?
