In an hour or so I start ten days leave. I am suitably excited about this, although I’m staying home and not going anywhere. So, here are some of the things I am going to do, both craft related and otherwise.
Knitting wise I'm going to finish the shawl I'm making for my grandmother. I've been wondering what to knit next, but next Wednesday the next Cookie A sock club patterns should be emailed. I just realised that, even if the yarn hasn't arrived I will still be able to knit one of the patterns from stash yarn. I also have plans for a few very small projects, which I'll show you as I go.
I've started spinning the Thylacine's latest sock club yarn. I'm spinning it quite thin and I'm going to Navaho ply it. It should come out quite stripy and I think you all know by now how I love a self striping yarn.
In sewing I have a dress I started renovating ages ago, so I just need to actually get out the sewing machine and finish that.
I also want to go through my cupboards and get rid off stuff. At the moment it feels like I have so much stuff I feel like I can’t find anything when I want it. Until recently I’ve moved house every year or so, which has helped me sort through my stuff, but we’ve been living in our house for over three years and it needs a really good sort out.
As well as all these crafting activities its Melbourne Comedy festival time, so Leon and I and various other friends have been seeing a show or two a night, which has been generally funny.
And I haven’t run since I did Run for the Kids last Sunday, because I’ve been quite sore. I can’t wait to get back into it, probably tomorrow.
So those are my plans – craft, laugh and run.
