I will one day know what day it is and have some sort of routine. I have been feeling very unfocused with everything in my life. At yoga yesterday the instructor asked us to make an intention for the class. Mine was to focus on a few things that I needed to do each day. I don’t think it worked out so well because I wanted to post this yesterday. I’m also not doing well with my New Year’s resolution since that was to be more present on my blog. I just want to feel more settled. It’s work in progress.
Onto knitting. I’m almost done with my Hermione Everyday Socks that I started so long ago. I just have the toe to finish. I thought that I would have to wait until autumn to wear them, but we are supposed to get some snowflakes Saturday night. I have also pulled out my Clockwork shawl to finish. It is like a breath of fresh air. I think that it’s the light and bright colors. I’m loving working on it again!
I really want to thank my friend Seashore Sharon for gifting me the beautiful Mighty Mini pattern. We meet every Monday to knit and have some coffee with a few other women and I was explaining how I feel like I’ve lost my knitting mojo. She gifted this to me for knitting inspiration and I can’t wait to start it. We are going to our Wool Walk together next week and I plan on buying the minis to make this. I was thinking about some autumn colors and possibly wearing it to Rhinebeck.
I’ve also been sewing up some project bags. I loved the ruler fabric and and made an antique key progress keeper for the zipper pull. My daughter picked out the fruit fabric and I thought it reminded me of a picnic hence the red gingham fabric at the bottom. I also lined the inside with the red gingham. There is also a strawberry progress keeper attached tot he zipper pull. It screams summer!
