I did not realize that I needed this in my life, until I found it.

Sockwatch '16
As you'll no doubt remember , one of the goals I set for myself is to complete 16 socks in 2016 (not pairs of socks... I'm not a mad-woman, just sixteen socks.  They don't even have to all have mates.) There are 52 weeks in the year, and divide that by 16 s...

+C.M. Underdown-DuBois It's a really lovely book -- I'm a little surprised Jess hasn't tried to make off with it too. I have an EAGLE EYE tho.

I'm not sure if I'll end up with a sock for all the holidays -- but probably several of them. (I found a pattern that would make great Hanukkah socks... I just need to find the right yarn.)

Also, thank you. :D

Setting Intentions, 2016 Edition
Every New Year I think about what I want from and for the coming year.  Health, productivity, a clean house, specific projects I'd like to accomplish, that sort of thing.  I've got a lot of ambition for 2016, and I'm ready to start making it happen.   On Ne...

I have a couple of goals, but they are vague as well. I would like to blog more, I would like to get out from under the near constant companionship of a rather large black storm cloud that is hanging over my head, I would like to also do more crafting and try to stay better in charge of household stuff.

As far as a hard goal, I would like to cook more healthy things, learn canning, and finish the tablecloth so I can start other lace projects guilt free. I will have been working on the tablecloth for three years come April.

This is good stuff.  I have my February is for Finishing goals prepped and posted, but the rest of February is still a little murky. I have several thoughts and ideas, I just need to pin it down.  My Intention (see what I did there?) is to get that solidified and written down by end of today.

February is for Finishing 2016: 10th Anniversary Addition

Monogamy Totally Means "With Three," Right?
This past week I've gotten a lot accomplished, and it's all down to project monogamy. Or, how I do monogamy, anyway, which apparently means that I'm only spending my time with three projects instead of eleventy-nine. Close enough. The three projects I've be...
