This past week I didn’t work on my wooleater afghan at all. I am now officially behind in the CAL. And I’m afraid to say that I will end up much more behind. This week starts the Bernat CAL, and I am eager to start. Plus I have several wedding gifts to make and those are the priority over the wooleater and even over the Bernat CAL. So I will probably lag behind on that too, lol. Oh well. at least I know what I’ll be working on this year. And I was intending on adding more rounds to my wooleater than the CAL calls for, so I would be working on that for much longer than that CAL lasts. So I am setting myself the goal of working on it an hour a day and then working on other projects too. I can get so caught up in the goal that I forget to enjoy the process, and it becomes a drag. So I am going to enjoy the process and rejoice every time I finish something. I am going to stop turning it into “work”, lol.
That said, I am hoping to finish the first wedding afghan this week, by Tuesday. That leaves only two more afghans to go as wedding gifts. Then I can start working on Christmas things.
This past week I was surprised to discover that only two crochet afghans will keep me cozy warm at night. Usually I use as many store-bought blankets as I can stacked to keep me warm. But only two of my homemade blankets were enough. That makes me feel pretty good. I can’t wait until I can make more blankets for my own home to use. They are so cozy 🙂
