Progress!

Although I admit that I was a bit aghast at my 'to do' list in the previous post, I feel as if I will be able to meet the goals. I found a small spiral notebook that can live on my desk or in my purse and I can keep track of the projects that I have accomplished (or not).

So far, I have...
  • Completed 2 hats (this one during the staff meeting)
  • Posted to Etsy daily
  • Made progress (writing, testing, photographing) on the freebie hat pattern (working title, Trailside).
  • Dyed green roving (3 batches)
  • Made flat felt to use in flower pins
  • Updated the SAFF site
I have also taken on a special order and (so as not to be in a completely fun-free world) took in a movie. My Sweetie and I saw 'Sex and the City' last night at the local Brew and View. Lots of fun, even for people who never actually saw the TV show. Cute and a bit predictable, but still great fun. I also knitted most of a felt hat while watching. I've never actually knitted through a movie at the theatre before, but this one was highly knit-friendly.

I made 2 sheets of flat felt from some merino I purchased a number of years ago, but never liked carding or spinning it. But I came upon some blues and purples a few months back, so I thought I'd test their feltiness and it was excellent. I think it's time to get out the rest of the box and dye it in 'flowery' colors!

I knit everyplace! Usually at the Brew & View, we go early to get good seats, so there is plenty of time before the movie. During the movie was a new experience!
