Procrastination is the thief of time.
Here's my theory: if I brag to you all enough about how well I'm doing with my New Year's Resolution, I'll be forced to keep it up all year or die of sheer embarrassment.
In the interests of not procrastinating, today I started working on the anniversary card for my parents. The big day is January 26th, and I like to mail cards out ten days to two weeks ahead of time. Normally, I would start thinking about making the card 'round about January 15th, agonize over ideas and finally get the thing in the mail on about January 19th. Not this time, pal. Keep a weather eye on the horizon, because I hope to be posting a photo of the completed card tomorrow.
The other thing I did today was start a community knitting project. I joined this group, and am making pair of child's slippers for their "Heet the Feet" project. The yarn is Wool-Ease Chunky in Walnut. I hope you can see the beautiful tweediness.
This yarn is so soft and thick! I'm knitting the slippers on needles several sizes smaller than the yarn company recommends, because I want a thick, dense fabric that will hopefully last for a while.
I found and printed out some intriguing new recipes that call for one of Liat's favorite foods, Nutella. Looks like tomorrow will be another baking day.
