This week felt like I got no crafting done. I barely made a dent in my new round of masks. There was only chaos (cables) on the needles. The pattern is approaching testing stage (I need to add the simple chart)!
With Halloween events, my littlest’s Birthday, and my parents coming up for 24 hours, I barely had the time to craft. I washed and blocked some knitting, including my Chaos Cables cowl. I love the drape of the superwash! I didn’t aggressively block, but it still grew as expected. I’m going to keep the mini version I made for my daughter (elementary school aged) unblocked, the closer fit works better for her.
I wasn’t able to complete the “October Minimalist Challenge” until today. My spouse helped out by letting me count a pair of his shoes he was getting rid of. SO SUPPORTIVE of him! I will attempt this challenge again, when the kids are back in the buildings for school. With them being around ALL the time, its difficult for me to be able to rip areas apart to sort without inquisitive little faces. I’m sure I will have amassed more stuff by then…. I have entire areas that I didn’t even tackle! If my quick math was correct, I am down 496 items from the house. I can’t REALLY tell. I think this means I have too much stuff crammed into all the nooks and crannies.
While I catch up on my design projects and their pattern writing, I’m going to start working another sweater. Not for release, just for fun (or a one size release so I don’t have to math). I hope to have new excitement to report on next week!!
It was wet and chilly enough for me to wear my Cute-Fight sweater today!!
