I think I’m approaching that time of year when everything starts to blend in together and one day becomes the next with no real delineation yet you still mark the passage of time in days, weeks, months. This is what Deep Winter does to me. Today is February 14th, Valentine’s Day. But that’s not a thing we ascribe to at my house. I don’t miss the opportunity to tell my friends and family I love them as often as possible. I did do some acts of service to show my love today. I deep cleaned the bathrooms upstairs and dusted the ceiling fans and some other cleaning tasks. Just before dinner I made some cookies with the kids. But I also took a bit of time to myself and applied some face masks.
This week I finished at least 2 hats and 2 shawls. I took the pictures for the hat pattern, I have in progress shawl pictures. Things are coming together!
I guess this is my half-year post. But in true fashion to myself- I have prepared nothing. And I have started a 2nd half list for next week, kinda. I crossed out half of the items on the sheet, so it is time for me to re-evaluate my goals and come up with some new goals. All of this week’s projects were stash yarn! So, I’m at 17/100 for calendar year 2021! We are halfway through February and I haven’t purchased yarn yet- I was able to resist temptation when I was at the yarn store picking up a bunch of metal 16″ circulars. It was time to replace some of my bamboo circulars, I got a splinter a while back. It was unpleasant.
I finished opening all of my AT Haynes House Love Lines Advent mini-skeins! I finally got my size 3/3.25mm 16″ circular needle for my “Right Round” Scarf. The circular is proving quicker already! I’ve decided to modify my striping sequence to account for two sections of most colors- except the 1st and 14th: They get one sequence of 40 rows. When I’m done, I’m going to jump into a STASH mini version. Stay tuned. There will be a post (Monday or Tuesday) where I recap my instagram feed from the last fortnight. I will talk about my Right Round Scarf Project a little more too!
