Not bad considering it feels like I got nothing done this month.
I skipped the last WIP-it Wednesday because there was no discernible progress in any of my projects. Why bore my small audience with the same pictures as the week before? I can assure you, kittens, that I am making progress, as my yardage numbers show. I managed to finish O4 of the O7 skeins of chocolate brown yarn in the bottom stripe of the never-ending blanket for The Boy. In May, I will finish that stripe. In the sweater project I cast on late in the month, I’ve finished the yoke and am moving onto the sleeves this next month. I even managed to have a single FO for April, a monkey for my daughter. (The Boy now wants one of his own, and I’ll try to knit that sometime in May as well.)
I’m rather pleased that my average is better than 1,OOO yards per month, which is my low monthly goal for 2O11. After 2O1O and popping out a mile per month–damn near close, anyway!–I really needed a break. I’m not going to lie to you, kittens, I’ve needed it. 2O11 has been rather stressful and many things require my attention that have not in the past. I’m hoping to come through this experience a little more adult than I have been. With the third decade of my life wrapping up, I suppose it’s time to get serious about that whole “adult” thing.
Thank you to those of you that read this little blog of mine. Here’s to a productive May!
