Carry on with Aranami/Imanara.
- Finish the pinks in the Fox Embroidery project.
Almost! I have four more small things to embroider with pink.
Spin for Tour de Fleece every day.Check check check check, etc. I’ve surprised myself by getting a little into it too, so my spinning mojo is coming back.
- Go to TKD once or more.
Nope. But I picked my family (well, 3/4 of them) up from the airport and they’re all black belts so that kind of counts! (But not really.)
Get the house ready& grocery shop for the return of my family from S. Korea.
I got the house ready but I didn’t grocery shop until today – I’d rather buy and make stuff that they want, not what I think they might want.
In other news, I also got a commission for The Yarn Office (me) to make a shawl for an old college friend! I ordered the yarn and started planning for it. Hurray!
And I decided what to make my friends Stephanie & Tommy for their baby: baby mitts and hats and (maybe) washcloths. I knit two wee pairs of mitts; I plan to knit a medium and larger size, too. I do need to brush up on my elastic skills; the 1×1 rib of the cuff isn’t elastic enough to keep them on a baby’s wrist.
- Begin knitting the commissioned shawl. One of the yarns has already arrived and I can get started on the first part of it before the second skein arrives.
- Spin for Tour de Fleece every day.
- Go to TKD even though I don’t want to, even though it’s going to be hot and the dojang doesn’t have AC, go even if Julia doesn’t go.
- Drink at least 3 Nalgene bottles of water each day (32oz) so I can handle the heat and TKD.
I don’t want to overload myself; that commissioned piece is the most important thing on the list and I don’t want to get distracted or bogged down with other projects.
I hope you all have a good week and that if you’re spinning for Tour de Fleece that you enjoy it as much I have been enjoying it, which is a lot!
