Hopefully we will start to warm up just a little bit so that we can enjoy going for walks outside. Right now, with the minus temperatures I don't feel like going out for a walk. I know that it is the middle of February so I shouldn't be expecting really warm weather.
Star Touched Meadows Stitch Along - December - here is the cross stitch project that I was giving my attention to. I have been working on this project for a while and was at the point that I wanted to see it finished.
I now have two of the blocks completed and already have the pattern for the January and February so I better get moving on at least the January block and hopefully I will feel good about it.
I am happy with how this shawl turned out and I had given myself to the middle of March to get it done and I was able to get it done by the middle of February so that made me feel really good. The only thing that is left to do is to block it a bit so that the edge lays nice and flat. Of course, after finishing the shawl it was time to figure out the next project that I was going to put on my knitting needles and it didn't take me long to do that.
Asymmetrical Lace Knit Shawl - here is a new project that I started this week as I had some more of that yarn available and wanted to try it on a different shawl. This pattern is an easier pattern than Beach Haven as the pattern is only at the top of the shawl so that makes the initial section of knitting easy to do.
I am looking forward to working on this shawl and hopefully it will knit up quickly. Seeing that I have been able to get a bit of kitting done most days is good. What I try and do is spend 30 minutes a day working on my knitting, and it seems to help me make progress on the different things.
This week I am going to be trying to make some progress on my new shawl and I am not certain which cross stitch project will get most of the attention. I may try and focus on Red Rose for a little while longer, but I also want to start working on the January section of the Star Touched Meadows Stitch Along. I guess I will decide what gets the attention when I do to pick up my cross stitch this week.
I hope everyone has been able to find that bit of time where you can do something for yourself. It does make a difference because you then have the energy to be there for the ones around you.
This week I will see what I do and hopefully next week I will have some more progress to show you. Have a good week and take that time each day to recharge your own personal batteries.
