Episode 105: Where is everyone going?

Episode 105 Where is everyone going?
What’s been going on? 
Some podcasts are stopping - goodbye to Knit A Journey
and Stitchit!  I am sorry to see these two wonderful podcasts end.  
Got our bikes fixed and have started riding them.  It is such a fun way to exercise.  
Started taking a cake decorating class at Hobby Lobby.   I have baked 4 cakes in the last week - I don’t think this is going to help my waistline at all. 
Knitting?
Amelia - scarf in laceweight yarn
I have been looking at different patterns to cast on once this is finished.  I am going to start knitting on the Kirra Jacket before I cast anything on though.   Need to find yarn for the pattern the Infinite Loop.

COC (Cleaning out Cobwebs)
 I have finished reading one of the books I wanted to read this month and have gotten half way through the next one.  I am on track.  
I have been meditating too and I feel energized.  
Tip/Technique
Start a leftover stash busting project.  I recommend the Beekeepers Quilt or the Barn Raising Quilt for sock yarns.  You can also make a long scarf along the lines of the Yarn Harlot’s recipe.  I really like the Knitty Gritty Skinny Scarf.

Episode 104: A New Year; A New Beginning

Episode 104 A New Year; A New Beginning    
What’s been going on? 
That is mixed with the “What have I been thinking?” 
Things I accomplished this year: 
Eat @ Home
Knitting from the Bin
Did not accomplish
Master Knitter Program
Spanish
Spin
I am very unhappy with myself for not accomplishing these things.  I have to forgive myself and move forward on this.  I am going to set better goals and work on these.  
Focus by the month will be: 
Jan: Meditation/ Energy Work
Feb: Master Knitter Program
Mar: Spanish
April: Spin
May: Exercise
June: House
then July through Dec will be repeated.  
Wrote a new sock pattern - Ruth’s Reversal Socks.  
Dawn from Knit Naturally has a great idea to have a gift box!  I am going to implement a gift box in the new year.  I will try to knit one ‘gift’ thing per month to go in the box.  Again, I will focus on ONE person a month and knit an item for them.  
Knitting?
Amelia - scarf in laceweight yarn
I am going to cast the Fiber trends  Felted Clogs on as soon as I finish the Amelia.  

New Year Focus
Take care of my body, my home, my self.  The name for this is going to be Cleaning out Cobwebs (COC).  I am going to be cleaning out the cobwebs in my mind, my body and my home.  
Tip/Technique
None this week.
