Hi everyone. I’ve been busy this week with a lot of medical stuff. However I was able to finish knitting the His and Hers Beanie from Ravelry.com using Fleece Artist Grassland National Parks Chinook yarn. I’m currently knitting matching wrist warmers from the free DROPS pattern on Ravelry. My plan of who to give all this finished knitting to is in a state of flux. I’m not sure what I’ll do with them. I may end up donating it all.
I was to the Open Fibre Night for the Regina Weavers and Spinners Guild this week. Had a blast with about nine other people in attendance. There were three of us newcomers. Though truthfully I’m not entirely new. I was there once last year, before my Dad became really sick and I started having health issues. Hopefully I’ll have time to make it from now on. Met one of my followers on Facebook. Always such a surprise and delight to meet someone who takes the time to follow me. Thank-you to everyone who does.
Today I’m off to a local knitting group. I want to work on those wrist warmers. I also want to get into the boxes of rug hooking fibre and see what I can conjure up in the way of fibre bundles to sell on my website. I have lots of fibre, it’s just getting at it right now is problematic. But it sure would be nice to organize and sell some of it before we move.
I’ve been exploring some interesting facets of bullet journaling this week. Ryder Carroll, the originator of the system, released his first book on the subject last Monday. It’s called “The Bullet Journal Method” and it is very good as an introduction to the system. I haven’t finished the book yet, but there is promise of it having material for seasoned bullet journalists too.
Meanwhile I am in the Minimalist Bullet Journal group on Facebook. There another member has posted a video explaining what he refers to as his “Frankinlog”. It really condenses a lot of information into a few pages…well…actually a double page spread with a couple of Dutch doors. Dutch doors are pages where part of the page (top or bottom) has been cut off, giving you a shorter page in-between two full size pages to write more notes. The advantage is you can see the top (or bottom) of a page (say a calendar) and still have oodles of pages below it to write task lists. I’m going to try it starting January. I’ll post a photo then to show you how it works.
I hope everyone enjoys a lovely fall (or spring) weekend. Take care my friends.
