I have decided that June is a time to challenge myself. Similar to the lesson learned with the self striping sock, I have learned that a lot can get done during nap time. So a little focus, some specific goals, and we'll see what happens. First up, I will be a monotonous knitter. I mean monogamous. Curlicue is my only knitting project, though that wasn't part of the original plan. And that's why I need a plan. I still haven't finished that darn thing. So I figure if I focus on one project at a time, I will get it done ala Penelope. Or I will poke my eyes out with my knitting needles from boredom ala Penelope.
The warp on my loom has started to sag and it looks so sad. So I must find time to weave every week in June. Even if it is just 15 minutes. The project is simple dishtowels.
My crochet project is the Babette Blanket. I don't expect this to be finished in July, but I'm worried that if I don't start it now, it will never get done. I will use it as part of my challenge. Let's see how many squares I can get done by next month.
Also part of the plan - everyday I must do something for the betterment of our apartment. Originally this meant overhaul but I have decided that basic maintenance qualifies. Let's face it, after a diaper blowout which manages to soil clothes, back, belly and hair topped by a good pee which results in heading straight to the bath in which more pee joins the bath water.... emptying the dishwasher and refilling it is considered an overhaul towards the betterment of our apartment.
Progress will be documented on the blog. So far I have knit a bit on Curlicue, sleyed a few more threads through the reed on my loom, and tonight I hope to wind some yarn for Babette. I overhauled the Loom Room to help inspire progress on the June Plan and recently did the laundry. I think Mommy needs a celebratory cocktail!
