December 6 Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (prompt by @gretchenrubin)
Ever since learning to knit, I've been on a roll. A coworker said that every time she turned around, I had a new project I was working on with the finished one sitting beside it. I've been a making fiend.
I'm happiest when I'm creating. It's a weird thing considering that it isn't something I do for work or career or anything. But I am happiest when I am creating. Whether it is a map of agencies, a desk top phone list, a painting, a terrible Saskatachewan Riders muff, or my new found love of knitting, I am happiest making stuff.
This week, I'm making a pair of hobo gloves for my office. I cannot find a happy medium of heat at the office, so my hands are always cold. Now, I do have another pair of hobo mitts, but they were too hot. So, I thought I should make another pair.
I am in love with this pattern. Forgive the picture (it's hard to take pics of your own arm.) I used the pattern by Jacqueline Vance-Kuss here. I had the colour left over from a friend's repair project. It's such a gorgeous rust red, I fell in love with it.
Now, I just have to start the second one. Or, just have one hand warm and one cold. Time will tell.
