Welcome to the fourteenth edition of The Cuttle Corner! Things are slowing down for the winter, but as long as I keep making progress, it’s a win!
If you missed last week’s post, you can take a look here.
Now, let’s get cozy!
What’s going on
This has been one of those weeks when time seems to fly by, but I couldn’t tell you exactly what happened. Part of this was due to me working more days than most weeks at my grow-up job. Even working a few days in a week affects everything else going on. I’ll be working a lot more this month, so I’ll have to be extra careful about my time management. My ongoing projects might slow down for a bit since I won’t have as much time to work on them.
This week was the third meeting of the Crafternoon. I forgot to take any pictures, but it was a great time. My mom’s best friend was sewing tiny historical clothes for a 10-inch doll. They were so amazing! The detail she’s been able to get into these miniature garments are incredible.
There were a lot of crochet projects this week. We’ve managed to inspire my niece to practice her crocheting and make an amigurumi project. There was also a lot of yummy food (which might be everyone’s favorite part).
What I’m working on
I feel like I’ve spent quite a bit of time working on my Hygge Burst blanket, but I’m at the point where it gets very hard to see the progress. I’ve added about a skein’s worth of yarn to the boarder since last week.
Even though it’s very simple, I really like how this boarder looks, and I don’t have to worry about running out of yarn in the middle of a row because it’s about the same amount of yarn each row. I don’t know if I will have the patience to use up all the yarn I have left, I’m so excited to have my blanket done!
Even with everything going on this week, I did fit in time to work on my Kildalton cardigan. I’ve finished shaping the front right of the sweater and started working on the back panel. It feels like I’m getting close to the end, but I still have to finish the back, shape the left front, join everything, knit the collar, and knit the sleeves.
I really hope I can maintain momentum to knit through the sleeves quickly. I’d really like to wear this cardigan while it is still cold out and not have to wait for next year!
Now that it is December, NaNoWriMo is over. I managed to write 11,986 words in the story I started. I’m very proud of that much work, especially since I didn’t do any writing for a week after my computer broke. Not to mention all the writing for this blog I’ve done during November as well.
I really enjoyed the time I spend writing. Without the motivation of NaNoWriMo I won’t work on my story every day, but I do hope to keep a regular writing practice in my rotation of crafts. My biggest takeaway was seeing how much writing I actually got done, only working on it about 30 minutes a day.
Until next time, keep cuttle-ing!
