vest, got some beautiful yarn, and did an important thing - I knit, washed, and blocked a swatch. I was so happy to see that I was able to get gauge using the recommended needles. I am hopeful that this vest will be a finished project in 2016.
Knitting is not the only place where I move too quickly. I am a joiner and a pushover for online challenges. I am lured in by the sparkly images I see on blogs and Instagram. And before long, I have so many daily activities to complete that I would need to quit my job to keep up. Accountability is an important thing for me. I have been successful with online tracking only when I know and connect with someone else who is also tracking. (I have to revisit my notes from Gretchen Rubin's book about this external motivation factor.) So I was happy to see that Lori is getting ready to plug back into healthy eating and exercise. This morning I cleaned out the fridge and piled a bunch of veggies on a plate, topped with two poached eggs. Over the next few days, I will be doing another important thing, some serious meal planning and prep so I will be ready to head back to work next week.
Hoping this week gives you time to focus on the important things. Be well.
