31 Day Blog Writing Challenge

The beautiful and talented Cheryl Sleboda over at has challenged the lot of us to use the month of December to blog more regularly. Build habits, practice, and get better at it. I figured I would jump in with both crazy feet and give it a go. Don't expect exceptional posts, or even daily posts, but I'm going to give it a shot.

To get us started here are some of the things that I want to accomplish in the next 31 days:
I want to stop sharing in-progress photos of this shawl. It is turning out to be such a great shawl and I want it finished and blocked and gifted by the end of the year.
Pattern: Virus Shawl
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici, color: Time Traveler (no longer available but they have some awesome new colors to check out)
I want to sit down and write the pattern for this tote. If it is good enough for me to make five of them then it is good enough to write down and publish.
I want to finish this super yummy shawl knit up in sport weight. At the expense of sounding like the rest of the internet: winter is coming.
Pattern: Stephen West, West Knits Best Knits Number 1 - Shawls, Garter Breeze (also available on Ravelry as Smooth Move)
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Sport in three blues, two purples and one green (Stroll Sport is no longer available from Knit Picks)
I want to finish up two more charity quilts to drop off at the last meeting of the year of the Annapolis Quilts For Kids.
Continue to make progress on the 2016 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt En Provence.

I'm sure I have plenty of other things to do. Things I should be doing, things I could be doing, and so many things! I hope to fill the month with photos and little stories about the crafting insanity that is December.

So go check out the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge to see who is participating and share some blog love.

Day 1 of the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge.


  1. Love your low volume 4 patches for En Provence. I'm at least doing the neutrals that way. I also live in Maryland! Eager to see if I can keep up with this 31-day challenge; hoping to form a habit.

  2. Wishing you the BEST with your knitting! I love the look of both shawls! My yarn adventures seem to have hit the back burner, but so have my fabric adventures. I had SO many finishes in mind for this year and I can see now that many will slip well into 2017. Ah well.
