organization (with pictures soon)

THIS YEAR i will attempt to become more organized!
I have a diary, like the mini kind with dates, and a couple of lines if u have something on...
I have Ravelry
I have diabetes log book stuff
and i want to get a personal diary! And aim to write in it every day, but no biggy if i dont! This way i can write you know, good day or not or get rid of any of that excess angst i cant throw at people at school, and my pain levels! The main point of the diary is to have a record of pain stuff, like where and when and how much. etc.
I also hope that writing stuff down more will help with my whole brain-to-paper problems. I might also do a couple of my own essays on a subject i have chosen, because i struggle with them, so if i practice with stuff i like ill get better..

Anyway

Knittery stuff.Well more spinning. i have been playing with silk and teh spinning wheel, many many thanks to Happy Spider for the lesson :D I have also done a couple of dyeing experiments, dyeing fleece with tea was fun, then ply the tea-singles with pure white singles, yum!

I still haven't found my drop spindle! *sad face* i miss it, its "somewhere in the garage!", doom.

Slowly knitting the shawl still..i forget how to spell it. I now have an infinite amount fo new projects i want to do thanks to ravelry :P But yeah knitting is slow. I made dad a cup cozy for x-mas, because he forget about his drinks a lot. And i improvised a dice holder for Morgan, but i don't have any ribbon for the drawstring still...Ah well, almost 100% :P

I have been playing with crochet, as you may know, still learning how to count stitches and identify one stitch and things, but im enjoying it. Not such a great online crochet community ive found, but i did stumble across a really awesome blog, crochet of distinction. Mindy uses beautiful Irish crochet, combined with knotting and tatting to create AMAZING jewlery! Very inspiring, fine work. Of course now i want to try tatting out :P Looks pretty.

Also been whittling! I whittled a few crochet hooks! Very happy with them, very easy to do :P I also made a darning needle for fun. I am looking for a good save whittleing knife but its been proving difficult.

Good on you, Dotter - great to make some decision about getting more organised. Even if only half of what you're aiming at becomes a habit it will still be a huge help in your life.

We will find that drop spindle - it's in there *somewhere*!

Love and hugs, Mum
