One of the things that I truly like about blogging is that I start holding myself accountable for the projects I commit to – and I focus on completion.
So last week I told you about Christopher’s sweater and how that was going to be the first project on my completion list. I set a goal to complete one 24 row pattern repeat each week to keep that project moving. I was able to get that much completed in a week so I am going to continue that goal for next week.
Here is what the front of the sweater looks like now – with two pattern repeats completed.
So I thought I would move onto completion project number 2 – which is a pair of mittens for me. I have made mittens using the Bella Pattern for my sister-in-law and for all three of my boys and everyone has loved them. I have had the yarn for my pair for years and last year finally started making my mittens – and then stalled.
I completed the main part of the first mitten – it just needs a thumb and the final weaving in of ends.
I even started the second mitten.
And then I stalled.
So the goal for this coming week is to do another 24 row pattern repeat in Christopher’s sweater AND complete the cuff on the second mitten up to the wrist. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. . . . .
Today’s bonus picture is of our Winter’s Mist – otherwise known as Misty. She turns 13 this month. Her copper is now white and she moves a little slower. We think she would like to go into retirement but Chip just isn’t slowing down and he is her job so. . . . . The boys and Chip got this picture of her as she was laying in the front yard watching him mow the lawn. She is always standing guard – he is her world and she will do whatever she has to to take care of him. He is one lucky Dad.
She is my baby girl.
Onward and Upward. . . . .
