Joining in with Chris' Tuesday To Do today!
Not that I really had a crafty to do list. Truth to be told, my knitting has been very scarce this past few months. Or maybe even this past year, I don't know. But I felt like knitting again and I had two unfinished projects. So maybe that was my list this week. Finish those.
First up: potholders. I know, not very exciting. But when I started them (I don't even remember how long ago) I thought some easy knitting would help me to get back into it. It didn't at the time and I had a bit of a hard time getting through four basic squares, but I did it. And well, there is something really satisfying about knitting stuff I actually use on a daily basis.
The second project I didn't even remember. I did have a vague memory of a hat that I abandoned when I needed to change to dpn's for top shaping, but I thought it was grey. Ha! Should have known better.
Anyway, I did the top and actually had fun. And now I have (another) green hat that I don't wear. But I do love it.
And that concludes my unfinished business. I love a clean slate.
Next weeks list:
- Julia directed me to this cardigan and I think I'd like to make it. Perfect for the colder evenings (I know you're laughing, but goodness, I've been so cold this "winter". Only 75 Fahrenheit/24 Celsius most nights)
- I also have an idea for a simpler project that I can just wing without too much thinking (because a. I knit mostly at night, when I can't read a pattern and b. I'm just so tired most of the time). Going to try that and I'll show you next week (or not if it fails)
- stop myself from getting overly enthusiastic. Startitis has not helped my knitting mojo these past two years. Too overwhelming, I guess. One big project and one easy project should be enough for now. But that doesn't mean I can't make plans... ;-)
What's on your list?
