The Week March 13-19, 2017

Last week’s goals with progress indicated:

  • Knit 3 more wedges of my Aranami shawl.
    Done. Easy peasy.
  • Recreate the charts for Aspen so they’re all in one chart, not a handful of charts with different row counts, which is too much for me to keep track of. Plus for some reason I really enjoy lining boxes up on a grid in Adobe Illustrator so this will be fun for me.
    I started but didn’t finish doing this but I’m marking it done anyway. The resulting chart would’ve been waaaaay too unwieldy, so I’m sucking it up and following 3 charts at once for the sleeves. The back & fronts are going to be interesting because I think there are 5 charts to follow.
  • Go to TKD twice and find more patience for myself and the instructor. (Expecting myself to have mastery of something I’ve practiced once is unreasonable and expecting the instructor to know where I am & what I need by reading my mind is also unreasonable. Maybe my goal should be more about expectations than patience. Or both. Hmm.)
    I almost went 3 times but that ended up not working out. Maybe this week. And my patience level was better.
  • Add more photos to Society6 and ruminate on it more.
    I’m certainly good at ruminating.

In addition, I:

  • Mailed off another order for The Yarn Office. The secret to etsy success appears to be abandoning all hope and then orders will start coming in. Maybe.
  • Downloaded Duolingo and started learning German. And then I tested for Spanish because why not? So I’m learning German & Spanish to add to my French (half of my double major in college).

This week:

    • Knit 3 more wedges of Aranami. Here’s a new picture of it, just for kicks:

    • Continue with Aranami sleeves. Here’s a progress picture with my unwitting feline model, Jeff[rey Lebowski, the Dude]:

  • Go to TKD twice.
  • Keep learning how to spreche Deutsch and hablas Español and not get anything mixed up with le Français. Or Franglais.

I knit, crochet, spin, and have done some experimenting with weaving and natural dye. I’m also a technical writer, mom to 3 boys, and enjoy gardening.

    1. Thank you for the list love – it’s very encouraging! And the Yarn Office … one of my boys started calling my office that after I took over our formal living room (and TBH, the dining room) with my desk & fiber stuff. 🙂
