So, if you ever read this blog before my baby-induced hiatus, you might already know… I kinda like to make stuff. Peruse my archives, you’ll find 6 1/2 years of knitting content. That is some hard-core, committed craftiness. But ever since I’ve had Baby J in my life, I’ve been a bit busier. Which is totally to be expected, I’m sure, but I miss it.
This resolution is to create something at least once a week. Knitting, sewing, major cooking/baking project, gardening, setting up my worm farm* — I say anything goes as long as I’m creating something with my hands, it counts. Of course, this includes the sew-along that I’m undertaking along with Africankelli, Finny Knits, Sue Walsh, and many others! (Click here for more info about how to join us… there are prizes!)
In a way, this isn’t really a resolution. I love making stuff. It’s not a challenge in itself – it’s a challenge to make the time. I also need to plan ahead a little bit to make sure I have all the supplies I need so I don’t have that frustration when I actually have the time to do something.
* Worm farm, eh? Yes, it was my Christmas gift from my husband. You have to know a girl pretty well to buy her a worm farm for Christmas, but for me it’s perfect. I’ve been calling around to local bait shops trying to track down a 1/2 pound of red wigglers to get my vermicomposting operation started.
