I have PROGRESS! My goals include actually RELEASING patterns, not just creating and mostly writing them. This week I released Rogue Charm to Ravelry; its FREE with code: RogueCharm until 1/20. After that I’ll be adding it to my Etsy and my LoveCrafts accounts. I’ve started a 4th with fingering held double, and so far it looks GREAT!!
This year, I’m 2 skeins into my 200 skeins used (this includes stash AND new). I had a major moment in de-stashing this week too. I was able to move ALL my yarn into my closet with NO overflow into other areas (my ottoman full of my Grandma’s yarn excluded from this). New soft goals include not having all the bins STUFFED to the gills. Baby steps, right?!?!?!
I’ve moved onto the 2nd sleeve of my “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend” sweater. I don’t have a new picture, so here is the yoke from a while ago. The sleeves aren’t patterned and just delightfully blue. Once the 2nd sleeve is finished, I can finish the torso. I am strongly considering tubular bind-off for the sleeves, but DREADING a tubular bind-off for the body. I just keep telling myself it’ll look SO NICE.
That sums up my week. I’ve been intentionally making time to get patterns written, treating them like a work appointment instead of an “I’ll get around to it task”. Hopefully this will encourage me to be more active with releases.
