It is now official, after the husband did a thorough fitting last night and did some muscle flexing in front of a mirror wearing Adam 😄 – I haz knit my second sweater! 💪💪
I haz conquered knitting (and seaming!) dark grey yarn, haz conquered working with snakelike implements of torment a.k.a. circular needles, conquered despair and the temptation to just give up and knit an entirely new and different pattern, and learned that maybe it’s wise to knit a size or 2 bigger than what the tape measure tells you to 😆😉
To my arsenal of knitting knowledge I also now add familiarity with working a raglan sleeved sweater and, a little exposure to cabling (I think), because the raglan sleeve called for a little style twist:
To tell you honestly though, I am convinced that my execution of the raglan sleeve cabling (?) was much better the second time around. The gaps of the pattern were smaller, tighter and uniform as opposed to the first try so … I guess you could say it was a blessing in disguise 😀
Anyways, now it’s time for a quick & fancy victory dance – all together now!
Wasn’t that absolutely empowering and motivational? 😄😄
Next on the knitting horizon: a sweater for my daughter that involves a simple motif. Stay tuned! 😘
Sometimes, a group of words can come at such the right moment that I just have to take a screenshot of it for repeat reading throughout the day.
I don’t have a lot of these but since the words aren’t as powerful to me anymore, this is another one for deletion from my iPhone’s treasury of odd photos (and screenshots).
But before that, maybe some of you might like it too so here it is:
Hello all! Happy Monday! 🌞🌞
What one good thing will you do/start today?
For me the answer is: delving into a topic of interest!
One of the perks of being a SAHM is the wonderful opportunity to indulge in the pursuit of knowledge 💖 And if you have internet connection, you have absolutely NO excuse to remain intellectually stagnant! 🙃
One of my areas of interest is ageing well and, although I’m still a long way off from being physically old, I believe it’s never too early to start establishing some solid habits that will help one age sexily 😉
So the other week I received information about a free online course on Strategies For Successful Ageing. It is a 5-week course given by the Trinity College Dublin and is but one of the many free online courses facilitated by Futurelearn.
Here’s an overview of the 5-week course:
Fascinating isn’t it? 😀 And you can be sure I immediately signed up!
I just finished week one (which is mostly introductory) and am excited to move into week 2. The course is self-paced so you can breeze through it as fast as you want or take all the time you need, the 5 week time frame is just a recommendation.
Aside from expanding my horizons, I’m definitely looking forward to learning a few practical tips on ageing well after taking this course.
I’ll keep you posted and, you keep me accountable, ok? 😉
