Week 101

This week started with Reuben eating Windex, causing me to switch to all natural cleaners that I purchased from Thrive Market. It was a whirlwind week of stress (due to the ingestion of aforementioned chemicals) and also fun (because life is fun with a toddler). Enjoy!

Wee Fast

So I received this chunky wool yarn from a knit picks mystery box, and I didn't know what to do with it. I don't buy chunky yarn much; my stash is full of worsted and fingering weights. But I wanted to use it, and since my last two knits had been really disappointing, I decided that I would knit something fun, free and easy with this yarn. I knew that my box of Christmas yarn was coming and that a difficult project was looming, so quick, easy and fun seemed the right choice.

I searched the Ravelry pattern database and found this cute pattern called Wee Fast. And thus my own wee fast was created, all in three hours and mostly knitted in nap time. I love it! The pattern was easy, free, and also simple. I love how the yarn pooled, and I love the soft colors. Definitely a win/win. Also, no sleeves. I love no sleeve patterns. Easy. I didn't realize I hated picking up stitches, but apparently I do.

After knitting this, I felt refreshed and ready to tackle something harder.

Week 100

One hundred weeks of vlogging! Wow! This week I am just trying to get back into the swing of things, as well as make vlogging simpler for myself. I am going to quit doing the links at the end of the videos to the next, last and one year ago vlogs. I also quit doing my outro. I love vlogging and want to continue, but all the bells and whistles make it too time consuming. Time to simplify! Let me know what you think.
