What's going on :
~Took the garden down. Picked the last few peppers.
~Not looking forward to first weigh-in this week.

Finished Objects (FOs) :
~Bowknit Bag (Rav Link) - - I liked making it. It almost, ALMOST, makes me want to knit some more bags.
~Ring (Rav Link) - - Quick and easy knit. Going to make a couple more in different colors and weights.
~October's Bakers Dozen Square (blog post link) - - Loved how this turned out as you can read in my post about it.

Knitting Works In Progress (WIPs) :
~Whirligig Shrug (Rav Link) - - I think this is going to be adorable. Going to knit one for Vera too.

Crochet Works In Progress (WIPs) :
~Test knitting these baby booties.(Rav Link) Except mine are in purple and a cream/off-white.

Sewing Works in Progress (WIPs) :
~Started on John's bandannas. The first one took me forever to decide on a stitch. I worked like 4-5 different stitches, cut them out and then started again. Finally, I have settled on the wheatear stitch. It looks nice from both the front and the back.

Tempting Ideas :
~My Target sweater. I think it would be super easy to make my own in another stitch . . . maybe moss stitch. Anyways, ideas going crazy with that.

Favorite Thing :
~Favorite thing this week is actually the focus on healthier living. I can definitely see the difference in certain ways. Little more energy and focus. Feeling better in general. My walk home today in the storm was actually quite enjoying. :)

On a side not I learned a very valuable lesson, do not put any notes of any kind on your lap, because then it looks like you are looking down your own shirt for half the video and it makes you self-conscious!


  1. Thanks for reminding me that I have a sweater I want to try to "copy". First thing I need to do is approximate the "lattice" portion at the yoke...

    Good luck with the weigh-in. I need to have time to get back to working out more regularly, but I knew this month would be crazy.

  2. Everything looks like it is going well with you! Lots of progress I see!
    Good luck with the weigh in!
