A Week Of Projects: Week 5

Last week was pretty slow in terms of crafting. I’ve been diligently working on my projects: Until We Win: Fight shawl, and my Wheat Stitch Crochet Wrap/Big Scarf (no new pictures). This past week I planted additional mums and attended an outdoor birthday party at a park for a friend. Until We Win: Fight. MyContinue reading “A Week Of Projects: Week 5”

A Year of Projects: Week4

Its Sunday again. Welcome. I don’t have any big finishes. Or starts. Or much of anything. Until We Win: Fight I’m on section 3 of 5 right now. Pictured is sections 1 and 2. Plugging along to make sure my numbers are right. They are. Updated the pattern file this morning to reflect some minorContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week4”

A Year of Projects: Week 3

Last week. Phew! I made a little progress on sewing through my fabric stash. I finished a pair of socks. I am working on the first test round of my Until We Win: Fight Shawl. I wrote about my socks here and my sewing here, just in case you missed it. The socks are recentContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 3”

A Year of Projects: Week 2

I didn’t get to work on EVERYTHING I wanted to work on this week. But guess what, I’m a going to go with the flow! Let’s focus on what I DID accomplish. Not YOP, but still an accomplishment: Yesterday I moved around some “organization” stuff in my daughter’s room. I use the word organization loosely,Continue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 2”

Year of Projects: Week 50/51

OOf. It’s a good thing school is starting back up again soon, because I seem to have lost track of time and days recently. I am, at my heart a creature of habit and ROUTINE. Having lost so many of my routine activities (teaching knit/crochet, the gym, kids’ activities), I sometimes find myself adrift. AsContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 50/51”

A Year of Projects: Week 49

My YOP year is winding down to a close! This week I FINALLY crossed another item off my list. I am pleased to announce the release of the Acute Shawl on Ravelry! This simple crochet shawl is written in US/American terms, has instructions for 3 weights (fingering, DK, worsted), and is suitable to crocheters ofContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 49”

Year of Projects: Week 48

Last week I had a couple of VERY quiet days when the kids went camping with their Grandparents. Much fun was had by all, and my kids were happy to be back home. Because apparently they missed us, even though we won’t let them eat chocolate at breakfast like my parents did. Aside: my parentsContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 48”

Year of Projects: Week 47

WOW. I’m 47/52 weeks into my first YOP. I was looking at my YOP list this morning- I don’t think I’m going to cross 15 additional items off my list in the next 5 weeks (I wanted to cross 20 items off my almost 40 item list). I know the goals are arbitrary. I knowContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 47”
