Update on My Goal List

I made goals at the beginning of this year. The goal is to complete what was started! Let’s see what has been done. And read the books I have. Plus no additional shopping, use what I have with my arts and crafts.

The Knits

There are 2 knitting projects, one a scarf and the other is a wrap.

The scarf is knitted with seed stitch. The wrap is knitted in hurdle stitch. It has 4 rows which is row one: knit stitch, row two: knit stitch, row three: knit, purl, row four: knit purl

The scarf is getting close to being completed. I may be able to wear this scarf before the winter ends!

Below is purl stitch. Garter stitch is the edge.

The wrap has much more to finish. I just added the other skein of yarn a few days ago. I also have to stop knitting it at a certain length, so I can knit pockets for it. (being a little adventurous)!

Below is close up of hurdle knit stitch.

Books

I am not a fan of reading. I prefer to write, but I know my writing is not professional.

The Bible study is going well, every night I listen to the study and make notes. I have been learning a lot.

The other books-well they make it out of the bin, but then onto a table. I just can’t get myself interested. The goal was to read, not to complete the entire bin. Maybe I have revisit this goal.

I Bent the Rules

I was going to finish another cross stitch before I began Rue Paris. But I just wanted so badly to start it. So I am now focused on Rue Paris. I am ok with that. I think I will alternate between the one I need to finish and Rue Paris.

Below is how much I have accomplished on the stitching. I’ll stitch Rue Paris on Sunday.

Happy Day
