This year, it seems like everytime I've made a grand announcement about things beforehand they get thrown out the window.
Best intentions and all that, right?
My reading and my knitting were completely thrown off the tracks with the Sock Summit madness and then moving right when I came back from Portland.
I'm still on the third book of the Dark Tower series, so even my little 4 book R.I.P. Challenge was unsuccessful.
And the knitting??
Are ya kiddin' me? I joined the Sweater a Month thing on Ravelry and I have finished four. Really all that challenge made me do was cast-on twelve new sweaters. Not really, but close. I should be able to finish another 3: one short and chunky (no comments from the peanut gallery), Dave's (that I started August last year), and the Hateful Bed Jacket that still just needs the final trim and it's done. I would be able to finish them but I have this stupid holiday knitting that I'm trying to crank out.
I finished a Just Enough Ruffles scarf for D2's teacher (pictures after I block it) and I still need to do a scarf for T's teacher. I want to crank out some dishcloths for Dave's 2 half-brothersandtheirwives and for his parents as well. I also want to finish Dave's sweater by xmas for sure. I made a scarf for my stepmom and I need to make one for my dad as well.
Somewhere in there I have to get caught up on the sudden burst of orders for Stitch Savers I've been getting from LYS's that carry me.
I decided to do that November Blog Every Day thing but I thought if I said it out loud, it wouldn't've happened. I did it! Yay! And now that I'm back in the habit of blogging more often, hopefully I can keep it going! (Does that last bit count as a grand announcement? Oops!)
Running as fast as I can, Ruth!
