Making Progress....

Well, today the weather was beautiful! Really, perfect temperature with a nice breeze to keep us cool. The family and I spent the day down at Mom's, sitting in lawn chairs, b-sing with the neighbors, watching the kids play. Karl worked hard all day getting his car put back together after getting airbags put on it last weekend. He's got a car show on the 4th he plans on attending (and winning a bunch of trophies!) so he was sure giving her the "treatment".

I spent the day working on one of my projects, the Summer Chevron Cardigan. I had already done the first five rows prior to today, but I worked for six hours and got past the armpits and am working on the body. My shoulder is sore from crocheting that long, but I am super stoked about getting this project finished. Here are a couple of shots to show my progress....

Here is a closeup to show the stitch detail:

I'm using Sonata, in a turquoise color. I may make a matching head kercheif if I have any leftover yarn.

I also worked on a poly-clay brooch for my Seraphina Shawl. I've sanded and finished it and need to wait for it to dry to see if it matches like I want.

25 Projects in 6 least

I have decided that I need to practice setting goals and reaching them. Usually I will just do what-ever tickles me, but I've found that that I have a ton of unfinished projects because I have no goals...

So, I am going to create my list of 25 things to have finished by the end of the year. Some will be gifts, some are things I'm already working on, some are just things that I want or want to try. I'm going to start out with 25 things, and I'm sure I will substitute some out for others, but 25 is where this list will end! If I can accomplish this goal, I will start a new list. :)
