Day 50 – I knit quite a few more rounds on the stripey hat.
But, before you can say that I’m back into the 366 days of making…
Day 51 – I just wasn’t feeling it. So nothing got done.
Day 52 – Back on the horse again. Knit more rounds on the stripey hat and rows of the basketweave scarf. I’m now on ball of yarn number two on the hat – 3 more inches of rounds until I start the decrease. I’m on ball of yarn number three on the scarf. I may not need to get into the fourth… it is looking pretty long already.
Day 53 – Even though it was a stupid long day and I was very tired, I forced myself to do something. So I started a new pair of fingerless mitts. One that I’m reworking a pattern for. What was I thinking? I’m adjusting the pattern from straight needles to dpns, and the palm from purl to knit. Oh, and it’s a cable pattern. I’ll be doing cables in the round, while making sure that I’ve adjusted the knits and purls properly.
Day 54 – Long, long, long day. No energy for crafting.
Day 55 – Another long day. But I squeaked out a row on the new mitts. I think the yarn is too big for the pattern. They may end up being legwarmers! Or being frogged.
Days 56 onwards – bits and pieces of knitting got done. But nothing else has. I think I have officially given up on the challenge. January was easy. Hibernation and cleansing is conducive to crafting. Regular life, for me, right now, just isn’t conducive to forced crafting.
