I will not start another project

I will not start another project.

Sometimes I have to remind myself of that. I have too many things going on now (and I even officially put two projects into hibernating mode on Ravelry ’cause I don’t see getting to them anytime soon). I MUST get SSP#1 out the door next month. I MUST finish 2 afghans before Christmas.

No matter how much the new alpaca yarn is screaming to me to become a Boteh Scarf. No matter how much the Debbie Mumm yarn wants to become a new Seraphina Shawl for me (although that likely will be what I take with me on 12/22 to Epcot ’cause I don’t need a pattern anymore for that). And I cannot start on the wrap or other sweater that I got birthday yarn for.

Seriously, someone needs to do some research into startitis and find a cure for that. Gah! Really, I need help. I also need to stay off Ravelry, I think. I don’t think that’s helping any. Or I need to clean the house tomorrow and hide all my yarn in the other room and only have current projects out in the open.

Well, that’s interesting

I just got a call from the Education Coordinator at our local JoAnn store. This is where I teach when they get enough people for my classes and don’t cancel them (another rant on another day and likely not here). Anyway, she’d gotten a call from a lady with a bunch of kids who want to learn to crochet. They’ve stopped offering the kids classes (thank goodness, I have a hard enough time teaching a group of adults sometimes) but she was interested in doing something. So, the Ed Coord called me to see if I would be interested in teaching a class if they get this group in. It would be at least 6 kids, maybe more. I told her I’m fine with it if (and only if) there are other adults present to assist. No dropping a ton of kids off with me and them running away for 2 2-hour sessions. She said that’s fine and said they were going to quote the price they used to do for the kids classes. I said that’s fine since there should be a good group of them. Thankfully it won’t be until January, so that gives me time to get all my other stuff done.

It’s sounding like January is going to be when things pick up for me. 🙂 And that’s cool. Just thought I’d notate it down (mostly for my own info). 🙂 Okay, back to work.

Making real progress

I’m very pleased so far with my progress on SSP#1. I’m having to go slow at it simply because my hands are not wanting to cooperate with the yarn and hook size. But I’m trying to keep plugging away at it. The new craft gloves I got with the rest of my JoAnn gift card help a lot. I’ve put some muscle rub stuff on the part of my hand that’s cramping and then put the gloves on top of that. I’m still getting cramps in my hand but it’s not as bad as yesterday.

As promised, here is a super duper close up (man these are harder to do than I thought). 🙂

Please forgive the white border. I wanted to get a pic up and if I got any closer it was too fuzzy. This is still in progress and will be much larger than this. 🙂

Anyway, back to work. Hope y’all are having a good day!
