Hello my friends! We meet again.
Are you now thinking of that Creed song from fifteen years ago? YOU’RE WELCOME!
I’m really not sure how I’m still awake. I woke up very early this morning for field work. The field job is local, which is great! I really enjoy being able to come home at the end of the day and unwind. The site is in a fun location within the city, too. It’s funny because I don’t know how many times I’ve run by that area, not even realizing we had a site there. (I get strangely dorky when I see groundwater monitoring wells while I’m not at work. I point to them and say, “LOOK! THIS IS WHAT I DO!” and then nobody cares).
It’s been a very cozy week. This weekend was coooooooold. It was a perfect time to get bundled up and make things that will keep me warm. I’m currently on a knitting frenzy. Now that I’ve made one hat, I want to make ALL HATS.
- Craft Goal # 1 – Hat that probably will not fit my head
I’m working on this pattern (stockinette stitch all the way) using Euro Baby’s Fruits and Veggies yarn. I bought the yarn when I was in Vegas. It is super cute. The ball of yarn was shaped like a blueberry and the little green stem you see in the picture above was on top of it. Like a blueberry! Get it? Unfortunately, I just made the realization (like, ten minutes ago) that the pattern was developed for a small child. “But Jenny,” you’re thinking, “the brand is called ‘Euro Baby.’ Is that not a big enough clue that it’s for LITTLE KIDS?” And I’m like GET OFF MY BACK GUYS, IT WAS CUTE YARN, OKAY? I need to think of small children in my life who I can gift this to. I do have a small cousin so maybe she will like it.
2. Craft Goal #2 – Pussyhat
My Instagram friend Jo let me know of this really cool project going on for the Women’s March in DC. It’s called the Pussyhat Project. The idea is to knit enough hats for all the DC marchers to wear. I love it! I’m working on a hat now. I’m not sure if I can finish it by the January 14th deadline, though. If not, I’ll wear it to the sister march in Austin!
3. Craft Goal #3 – Embroidery Project of Laziness
And finally, I really need to finish an embroidery project I started back in…November. I am really excited about this project since it’s my first design. I just need. to. finish. it. It’s probably about another hour’s worth of work at the most.
What craft goals do you guys have for this month?
