so several months ago, I made my plan, my yarn list, and then...stalled. lost steam. do you ever do that? get totally excited about a project, an idea, a craft then stall on it's progress? I kept thinking "next month I'll catch up." but next month never seemed to arrive...until this weekend! I knew June 1st I wanted to have 12 of the 24 ornaments completed. with only knit, it was my crunch time.
so after finishing, I kept the ball of yarn rolling and got organized for a weekend of "pick up" knitting. I didn't obsess over finding knitting time, just quietly picked up the needles during down time. and this morning finished the NINE hats with their pom poms. number ten is already on the needles. and just like leslie, once I was started, I couldn't stop knitting little hats!
the pattern calls for you to make the poms without help. I just couldn't do it. my tops all looked silly. so off I went to michael's to purchase the pom pom maker. much better!
so I'm now well on my way to reaching my goal of 12 finished by June 1st. the mittens will follow, then the numbering and cords. it's a work in progress, but it's now a project in motion. what project do you want to get moving? go ahead! just take 15 minutes to work on it. and get the ball rolling again.
