Staycation Continues, Prompts Reflection
*I will knit all the rows from the underarms down. This will allow me to avoid purling, and it will change up the look a bit. It should keep the edges from rolling too. It is a little small for me, so I will adjust the back stitch count and sleeve count. Karen, I know you are lurking, so you can help me adjust the cardi to my body if you want to be a doll!
Others of you have prompted my reflection as we are halfway through this year.
*I've fallen short on some of my non- knitting goals for the year:
Rode my bike for about a week until the weather got oppressive.
Haven't lost any weight by the way my pants fit. I'm overeating no doubt.
On a more successful note:
I have managed to do some difficult fostering for the shelter.
I am gardening more and keeping up with the yard well so far.
I have been very good about deleting unwanted images from the computer as I move from day to day.
I made a major move in a destructive relationship in my extended family.
With half the year left I will embark on a new goal: go back to writing poetry for myself.
If I just work on this one writing goal, good things will follow. Poetry always leads me to good things.
Have you made any GOOD changes this year?
