To challenge myself a little I started lace knitting in this scarf for a friend.
The pattern is super simple and easy to memorize.It is a free pattern and has a chart with it which turns out is far easier to follow for lace knitting. You can find free pattern for this scarf here. I just didn’t put in the nupp stitches.
It took me a little over 3 months to make this super long scarf. But I am so happy with the end product. It is completely worth the time. And the yarn is gorgeous.
I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace yarn for this and changed colors at the end of each skein.
Half way through 2016 I started setting up SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time bound). I set up my dream life, 5 year goals, annual, quarterly, monthly and daily goals. I have to say it has worked really well so far. It has given me the clarity I needed to see where my small teeny-tiny business is headed. So for this new year, I have some ambitious goals that I plan to work towards each day both in my professional and personal lives. Do you set goals each year and has it worked for you?
Some of the incredible habits I have installed in this last year is journaling, daily planning, and 5 mins of french learning each day. I do not start my day without it and it definitely has helped me accomplish a lot during busy times and keep up with all the errands and activities.
To start of this new year on a productive note, I have these beauties available on the store. I am absolutely in love with Trellis patterns and spotlight has them in these bright and vivid colors. Check them out in my madeit and etsy stores now!!
This productive week I worked on super exciting fabrics.
After watching the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, ‘Before the flood‘, (which is available on youtube to watch by national geographic for free for a limited time), I am so terrified for what climate change has in store for us. But it also brings hope that small things can make a lot of difference and revert the changes in the environment. It is so easy and tempting to go for convenience like plastic bags, to-go containers, go the extra mile and refrain from using plastic bags. Try to reduce meat consumption in your diet, it will be the wiser choice for your health and the environment.
It is a tote bag and you can use it for a lot of purposes, including as a swim bag, market bag, knitting project bag, or gym bag. It is super convenient can handle a lot of weight with the handles sewed in all the way.
