It’s my birthday!!! It’s my birthday!!! It’s my birthday… *dancing*
My birthday is coming up, within the next two weeks. I’ll be 34 years old. Yes, ancient. Kidding.
I’m hoping to drop a few “Shocking!!!” things this year. I’m not going to say what they are until they come to fruition. There’s a nice vague mystery for you all to ponder.
Nothing much else is happening in my life right now. I am working on a few crafting projects, Billy the Bear, the Rainstorm II socks and Bruce’s gloves (sporadically).
I am almost completed Billy The Bear. He’s for the Paternal Parental. I should have him completed by tonight but here’s a picture of him from earlier today.
Yes, that is my messy cluttered desk the bear is sitting on. This pattern is from Lion Brand Yarns and is one I’ve done previously. I made a bear for the Maternal Parental, only for hers, I used a G hook. This time, I used an H hook and got a bigger bear for my bargain. The name of the pattern is Buddy Bear and the pattern number on Lion Brand is 80359.
Once I get the above pattern completed, I’ll probably go back to the Rainstorm II socks.
This pattern is a dream to work. It’s called the Misti Sock Family and it’s the largest Men’s size I’m using because I happen to be a Hobbit. Kidding. My feet are large though. I wear a 9.5US Men’s shoe. This is the fifth time I’ve used this pattern to make socks to completion. I did make an attempt to do four at a time but got sidetracked by other projects and frogged them. I am currently 45% completed with this project. Yay!
The only other thing I have on my plate at this time is this mystery blogging project from WordPress. Starting tomorrow, I will perform the tasks as I receive them in my e-mail. I have no clue what it’s going to be about. I just know that I am going to complete it all. I’m determined to do it. I spend quite a bit of time either excoriating myself or outright running away from potential writing projects as they come up due to fear. Fear of judgment and fear of success. I have a big issue with self-esteem when it comes to writing. 2015 is the year this changes for the better.
Who knows? Maybe this new attitude will lead to my finally doing NaNoWriMo.
Tonight’s agenda is: watching The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers with the Maternal Parental.
Have a fantastic day, Peoples of the Sun.
