Weekly Update #13
Okay, change for this week is simply the length. Since I started this video blogging/podcast I have been concerned on time. Is it long enough, will it be too long? You know, the basic worries. I have decided to let that go for this episode. I think worrying about the time makes me less relaxed. Also, I like talking about my projects. You will only notice one small glitch in the video and that's because evidently my camera will only record for 10 minutes and since I went a smidgen over, I did the best I could at connecting the two pieces. I am looking into getting myself that video camera for my birthday/Christmas present. We shall see if I can save up.
What's going on : Very little, trying to clean to keep off the crafting lull, but I feel it creeping up. My crafting tends to lull when I can't keep focused on my projects and want nothing but to start new ones. Like I just can't be satisfied, hoping to push this off with some super cleaning . . . like scrubbing cupboards, stove, and the refrigerator!
Finished Objects (FOs) :
Nothing really, but I am counting the yoga sock as half of an FO.
Knitting Works In Progress (WIPs) :
Bakers Dozen Square - still enjoying the way it looks, even like the way the back looks!
Cloud Chaser - still working on it, honestly it's one of the few projects I am still loving working on.
Shetland Pi KAL - yes that is the link to Clue #5, nope I am not there yet. Rows are moving slowly.
Black Tie, Optional (RAV link) - Which is the Sockdown September Mock in the Sock Knitters Anonymous (RAV link). I am modifying it just a bit because my gauge is smaller than the pattern calls for. I am blaming my involvement in this KAL on Wendy from Wendy Knits simply because I enjoyed doing her Shetland Pi KAL so much and it was my first KAL. May all KALs be as enjoyable.
Sewing Works in Progress (WIPs) :
Raw Edge Circle Quilt - Eleven more circles hand stitched onto the background squares. 17/64 Squares
Giraffe - working slowly on sewing the yarn mane into the 8" neck of the giraffe.
Purple and pink yarn dyed.
Tempting Ideas :
Colorwork - I want to knit the Alchemist socks from The Enchanted Sole by Janel Laidman. I am considering using some of the yarn I dyed up. I told myself once I am done with the Shetland Pi Shawl, I can cast on for these.
Favorite Thing :
IntenSati workout video. I am appreciating the affirmations that go along with the exercises. They do help me focus and feel better cognitively/emotionally. I am considering trying some of her other videos.
