Way to start off the month by not writing an update last weekend! No worries though, because there wasn’t anything that exciting going on.
The biggest piece of news is I FINALLY released Chaos Cables!! Its available on Ravelry and Etsy! If you purchase through Ravelry and use the code CHAOS2021 through January 20, 2021, you can get the pattern half-price! Thank you, Hannah over at Quiet Water Craft, for all your assistance in getting this pattern release ready!
In non-creative self-care: I finally went to the foot specialist to find out why my feet were so incredibly inflamed and why they were getting worse, despite my complete ignoring of the problem. I apparently have plantar fasciitis really bad. I got a cortisone shot in each foot, and it’s made a world of difference! I’ve been taking a lot of walks, and I’m virtually pain free. It’s not all the shot, the shot simply reduced the inflammation enough that the stretches are actually helpful in keeping things limber instead of making it worse. Who knew going to the Dr would be more helpful than ignoring the issue and pushing through the intense daily pain. Now I can take all the walks, pain free.
I’ve been chronicling my January Photo Challenge, #YarniaPix2021, on Instagram since the first of the month. It’s really inspired me to wear my knits and crochet projects! I’ve listed the pattern, designer, yarn and colorway where applicable there too.
I tend to wear the same hat/cowl/old fuzzy fingerless mitts to most of my outdoor workouts, so I don’t really bother retaking those pictures, I just wear something else that day too! In case you don’t use Instagram, I’ve made a gallery of most of what has been posted 1-16 of this month. I feel good that I’ve been sticking to it. I want to do it again next year, maybe you’ll join me! I’ve fallen in love with my finished items all over again!
Yes, I too notice that most of my projects are in a VERY specific color pallette! Purple IS my favorite color!!! And also yes, I gave myself a hair cut the other day. I was so annoyed with ALL the dead ends that I am now rocking a basic bob once again- the only cut I can manage with any degree of success.
