Remember those BIG things I started working on last month? I'm actually making progress.
First--ta-da--I finished the sweater. Yes it's very hand-knit looking and does not fit great, but it's done, which means I can knit a sweater! In only 1.5 months even.
I'm blocking it as we speak. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't shrink.
|See that dangling string? That's all the yarn that was left when I finished, which is about as close as you can come to running out of yarn without actually running out of yarn.|
And, finally, I'm almost done with Issue #12 of my zine. I just need to come up with a title and a cover image and drop it at the printer. Hopefully I'll pull that off (or out, as the case may be) in the next couple of days. No photo, 'cause there's not much to look at but a pile of marked-up paper, but soon, very soon, I'll have more to share along those lines.
As I've mentioned before, accomplishing things is a key to my happiness (or non-depression), and a some stuff I've been reading lately about happiness confirms that people need growth for happiness. I think these big projects (among other little ones) have greatly helped keep the February Funk away...now I just need to come up with something even bigger for the even more discouraging March Malaise.
What are you doing to survive winter?
