This morning has been rather productive, all things considered. My crafting life has been less so over the past couple of weeks. I focused on reading, rather than crafting, in an effort to make progress toward my GoodReads goal of 20 books this year. I failed. I started 2 more books, but didn't finish any. I tried, I really did.
This sweater is closer to being completed than in this picture:
I have finished the front and back, and one sleeve. It would have two sleeves, but the first one was a bit small. I followed the directions exactly as written, and there was zero ease. As in "it pulled the neckline of the sweater" no ease. So, when I started the second sleeve, I added two stitches, and it is amazing what a difference 2 little stitches can make. It went from "suction cup" tight to "comfortably close." This is a lesson for not just knitting, but life as well. It may not seem like much, but a small step or two can make a big difference. Just one choice can start you down a path of big changes.
This still sits in a holding pattern. As I started outlining the letters, the curved portions of the letters were looking a bit thin, So, I started filling them in. This takes more time. I hope to show you a more complete Tigger by the end of the week. I am learning to stop quitting things. I have to be mindful about working on something, and I think that's everyone. Some people just have it down as more of a routine. I'm still working on that. What's new for you?
