I’ve been hopping around giving myself some of my older hobbies back, along with trying a couple of new ones… If I do this, I’ll be just one terribly zealous girl who does
- Knit [sparingly and not often, but I do]
- Cross Stitches
- Designs and makes jewelry
- Does Calligraphy
- Works with polymer clay
My god. Can you say overload? You can, go ahead. Not to mention COLLEGE. Jesus. Do I really need more? The bolded ones are the ones I’m thinking of letting myself pick back up. But baby steps right? I have a sketchbook, because I compulsively buy them when they’re on sale or in front of me within arms reach. I’m considering making it an art journal of some sort. Not really a “Smash Book” [although truth be told, I want to do that too], but a conglomeration of little writing quotes I think of and sketches big and small covering the pages. Might even get some Mod Podge to play with. I do want to do something with all of my scrapbook paper [I did mention I have a scrapbook in moderate neglect, right?]…
I’m spread a bit thin, but all in all, I’m happy. I’m happy pursuing so many hobbies that I have little time for much else. It’s a bit overwhelming sometimes, with all of the project ideas and such that I have. But, I like it. It’s a nice “too much” feeling, you know?
I didn’t bring my crochet project with me, in a valiant attempt to complete Oedipus today so I can get the quiz out of the way tomorrow [so I can crochet]. I predict that you’re going to be seeing SO MANY things on this blog. Especially after I buy it tomorrow [possibly, no promises since friggin Verizon went ahead and took their money after I went through the problem of preparing to pay with my credit card. But hey Verizon, no big. you just tried to take money I don’t have right now. >:C]. The Verizon rant aside, I want it. And I’m probably going to get it. Because I’m me. And I’m stubborn.
My attempt at following the pattern to a T might not work out for me, but I hope it does since the DC has a fair amount of stretch to it. Me and my chicken legs should [SHOULD] be able to fit. I’ll read up on Oedipus tonight when I’m getting ready for bed, I wanna make progress on this project since I got set back to square one.
TL;DR: New hobbies, refer to list. Project back to square one, I’m making progress. I have plans. For more details read.
PS; might make one change to the pattern and do this edging instead of the boring small shells she has in the pattern, the only way I’d be happy with those shells is if I stayed in the brown color, but then they wouldn’t be noticeable. ;c
First make your base row then work as follows:
1sc into first st
* Miss 3, 7tr into next stitch, miss 3, 1sc into next st **
repeat from * to **
