I decided to join Ginny in her Wednesday Yarn Along. Knitting is more my thing. Well, I should say, knitting scarves, as I don't know how to knit anything else at all. But last spring, a friend of mine showed me how to crochet, and I've been enjoying a bit of that as well. While I find making scarves much easier by knitting them, when you need to make something very narrow, I find knitting annoying. You barely get started, and you have to change your needles around.
For this holiday season, I was super lucky to score a beautiful Waldorf doll for my daughter. A super talented mama that lives close to me started making some and I bought one from her. So I decided that Orchid (that's the doll's name) would need a rainbow scarf. While it's not a super long project to make, it's about all I have time to crochet right now. I still have so many projects on the go for this season, some for my own children, some for friends and some for family. The yarn I used is an acrylic variegated yarn, and the scarf is not going to end up with any of the green or blues, since it's not wide and won't be very long. But I think it's going to work out just perfect, as the doll's hair is purple. The orange and reddish tones will suit her perfectly!
And somewhere in between all this crafting and normal everyday life stuff, I'm trying to carve out time to study. I have quite a few books I'd love to read and am quite behind on reading "the other stuff", but school has to come first when it comes to books right now. I'm still struggling to find a balance between studying and crafting at the moment, but I suspect that once Christmas is over and the present making will be done, that I'll be able to catch up on school reading just fine and find a balance again.
The last chapter I read was about nutrition labelling and I'm glad it's over. It was boring! LOL. This new chapter I just started is called Nutrition, attitudes and behaviour and it's so interesting! I love it!!
So there you have it. I am finally talking a little bit about my schooling ;) And sharing my teeny tiny project to go with it. Go check out Ginny's yarn along post to see some beautiful creations others have been up to along with some interesting reads :)
