This week had me checking off a surprising amount of tasks on my YOP list!
I finished my Right Round Scarf AND the Right Round Cowl last week. I crocheted a couple baskets to wrangle laundry room clutter My Stash Bust total for the first week of March is 6 balls!! My YTD total is 24. I’m well on my way to my 100 ball goal for the calendar year.
Also this week I LITERALLY spent 5 minutes fixing my wheel. Its been broken for well over a year, maybe almost 2 years. The worst part: I’ve had the part needed for the repair since before it broke AND it was literally sitting in a bag ON the wheel the entire time. I spun the remainder of the bobbin. I have more fiber to spin, ply, and set. I’m notorious about not setting my twists. No pictures.
Now that my pattern development projects are complete, I’m back to working on the Kyyyyle blanket. It will not be a pattern, the blocks aren’t quite RIGHT. I’ve invested too much time into it to rip it all out. So I’m going to finish it, wash it (and hope the fibers relax a bit more), and mail it to my friend. Having a blanket made by your friend need not be perfect to be warm or appreciated. I hope to have it finished soon, in the meanwhile, I can contemplate my next project.
With all my finishes this week, I can officially update my YOP list! I finished 20 line items from my first list. My second list is somewhat more open-ended.
Other non-YOP goals: I went the entire month of February without buying yarn. I thought on March the 1st I would go crazy. But here we are 7 days in and no new purchases. Once I have a project in NEED of something specific, I will 100% guilt-free purchase the supplies. In the meanwhile, I’m going to keep running down the stash.
Today has involved no crafting, but a surprising amount of time in the kitchen. It started with my egg sandwich lunch, rolled into a lunch meal prep session, that made a sink full of dishes, and turned into Sourdough Waffles with Turkey Bacon, pineapple slices, and cucumbers for dinner. SO MANY DISHES. After the kids are in bed, I’ll be able to do some crocheting on the blanket! It will feel good to relax.
