Busy week.... and another to come.

Yeah… I have been knitting… a lot. *grins*  I have all my slippers knitted and tomorrow I am sewing them up so that I can felt them and then start needle felting on Wednesday. 

Yeah there are three pairs there.  Cool isn’t it.

Also I took a wonderful class on Saturday for this very flowing and bohemian scarf.  The designer of it calls it a Gypsy Scarf and I like that.

This is the beginning….

….and the beads to go with it, hematite and multicolored blue seed beads.  It is so great and I think I am going to make a couple of these for presents. 

I am also hopefully on Wednesday or Thursday be able to Kool Aide dye some yarn.  I have a could idea for a story to go with it.

Also just need to finish up the girls costumes…

They are going to look great.

I did pretty good on my goals for last week… I shifted the one of the slippers and just am going for it lock stock and barrel.  The sad part is the class I was going to have tonight (Monday… I a still on Monday time) was cancelled and now I am going to shift what knitting I am working on because of it.  Less stress but a shift in plans. 

The other thing that I have been rolling around in my head is NANO, National Novel Writing Month.  It is next month and I am trying to decide if I want to participate and how much I want to participate.  I have a couple of ideas but I don’t know how hard and heavy I want to pitch it.  I am enjoying my knitting and relaxing with my blogging and journaling.  I might take a more free flowing approach to it this year but the theme of my writing I am not sure of yet.  I was thinking actually of doing some short stories either revolving around recipes or knitting experiences.  Just some thoughts I guess. 

Anyway I my accountability for this week:

1. Felt and needle felt the slippers
2.  Dye the yarn
3.  Get 50% done on the Gypsy shawl
4.  Get new yarn attached to the Dr. Gryffindor Scarf
5.  Finish girls costumes
6.  Keep up on the Ferrety Friday posts and toss around ideas for a third weekly post

I think that is a fair assessment of what I can accomplish.

  1. Was needle felting hard to learn? I'm starting to see more of that on Ravelry & it's so pretty I've added it to my "learn how to do this" list. I admire your ability to plan the creative projects & keep yourself focused.
