So, I can't resist the shiny at times. I want to make all the projects NOW.
I've joined up on two trends. One was the economy block along.
I made a top over the weekend. Plus side, I used up some hoarded AMH Field Study. Downside, I think I need me some leopard flannel to back this one. (Upside, I have kona raisin I want to use for the binding.) It's not cheating if it immediately comes and goes from the stash, right?)
But, that's not my goal for January. I also started working on the Feather QAL blocks. I decided to keep using up the Field Study. I'm using the scraps from the Economy blocks and the rest of the bundle. I'm going scrappy. No set plan on this one. I kind of need the improv-ness to keep me motivated on the paper piecing. Got blocks A-D done. I'd like at least stay on schedule for that QAL for the month of January.
Here's what I have done so far:
To be on schedule, I have to do blocks E, F, G and H still.
I'd love to be ahead of the game and up to I or J, but through H will still be acceptable to me.
Also, I wanted to put out there my goal of reading actual books more often.
So far, I've finished a Rick Riordan that was languishing for a long time.
I'm also almost done with The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. Update: Finished it last night!
I have to knit like a fiend this month. I just got some scentless Soak yesterday for washing and blocking! On top of all the projects on my FAL list, I have to knit 3 cyclops caps for the play and paint flats. Wooo. At least the play is written. I have to cast it this week. I also have plans to chop off my hair. I hate it right now. Did I mention wanting to do all the projects NOW?
