I tend to start a lot of things, but finish very few.
I started this sweater a very long time ago, likely at about the time Soule Mama made this post and I fell in love.
I painstakingly hunted high and low for the perfect wool and worked quickly to knit the sweater up within a week or two. However, when I’d finished, I didn’t weave in the ends of the string and I didn’t wear the sweater. I threw it in a drawer and left it there, so very, very close to finished – but not.
I found it when I was unpacking boxes and finally took the 10 minutes needed to finish it up. I am really glad that I did. It truly is an awesome sweater that just makes you feel good.
I wonder what project I can finish off next, perhaps my rainbow quilt or maybe I’ll add the crochet flowers to the edge of the skirt I knit for my daughter last year.
Here’s what our little clan has been up to this week….
Liam – Got sixth place on the island in his Cub Car races this afternoon. He was quite impressed and so were we.
He started a lapbook on the human body and spend many hours working on it in the evening instead of sleep. At 8, he is gearing up for the GED and we were playing around with testing because he wanted to and the science was the most complicated stuff for him. He is also working on writing a choose your own adventure novel.
Morgaine – Is knitting, and kitting quite well for a little one.
She also made a new friend at Liam’s races.Her dance year is almost finished and she’s excited about that.
Ruadhan – Is (sort of) sleeping at night, waking only about 4 times a night to nurse and then actually going back to sleep. Mummy feels so well rested. Trains are still his favorite topic but that is closely followed by bugs and he’s found a couple carpet beetle friends this week!
Mum – Waited all week to receive wool in a red, brown, green colourway to knit a jacket for Ruadhan and received a red, brown, pink colourway instead so start on a really boring skirt for the girlie girl.
Enrolled for the Natural Wellness course from Vintage Remedies. The intention is to work through the whole program but we’re talking one series of class at a time to begin because we’ve been burned by natural health “schools” before. However, I’ve researched this school for about a year and I SURE that I will actually get the education I want though them! I’ve had fun reviving water and milk kefir grains and I’ll probably post about that at some point. We’re enjoying some good probiotic drinks in the house.
Daddy – Worked through another large pile of branches in our yard. Cooked an amazing chicken recipe out of his head and treated the family yesterday.
