I've been pondering over this post for a few days now, trying to decide where to go with the Year of Projects. I'm not really sure that 'committing' myself to set projects for a whole year suits the way that I am. I quite like to dip my toes in and out of projects and I'm finding 'The List' is playing on my mind a little more than I would like it too. So, I think the best thing for me to do is carry on as I was before 'The List' and relieve myself of the stress it's causing me. Phew, there I've done it - and already I feel so much better :)
On a similar note, I've also tidied up my Ravelry Projects Page and removed a few things here and there. It's all feeling very cathartic here I tell you!
The One a Day Project is going well, early days I know, but so far I've produced one block a day and I'm still enjoying the pattern which is good! I treated myself yesterday and as I had completed my block AND another stripe on the Ripple, I cast on a Honey Cowl. I'm using Debbie Bliss Andes and so far, so good, no eye flair up. BUT, here's the exciting bit. I have finally found a hexagon pattern I love. I've tried the Hexagon Tutorial from Attic24 and I tried The Apairy Puff but neither really got me all excited. You, know, that all consuming must do more excitement you get when you have found the right project, surely it's not just me that gets that? So here are my Baby Hexagons......
Oh they are so cute! So quick too - 10 minutes from start to end, including sewing in the ends. Perfect. The pattern is from Bunny Mummy and you can find her little tutorial here. I'm using Rowan Belle Organic DK, which is just the most lovely yarn and a 4mm hook. I'm going to be whip stitching them together and I'll just keep going until I've used up all seven balls.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope we don't all get blown away!
