Saturday Night Knitting Progress

It’s a few hours until Daylight Saving Time begins, and the stack is growing! These are all of the washcloths that I have made so far from leftover skeins. At the end of 2020, I had an entire fabric bin full of leftover rainbow colors. I’m just getting into the leftover blues now. 🌈 When these are finished, they will be listed in my Etsy shop at a special price, since most cloths have one or two joins each.

A stack of knit cloths, blue to red, stacked on a surface in front of a flat screen TV showing the Netflix interface, with the show "Start Up" on the screen.

While I was knitting tonight, we finished the Netflix series, “Start Up”, which is definitely one of the better k-dramas that we’ve watched — enjoyed it from start to finish! It had several actors that we knew from “Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol”. And we were able to understand words here and there, which is exciting. “Start Up” also motivated me to get back to reading a WHOLE BUNCH of business related books, and review what I’m doing with my business. Definitely check out the series on Netflix if you are one that is binging kdramas. 💗

TGIF – 5 Mar 2021

TGIF! I don’t know about you, but I need a break, and I’m very much looking forward to the weekend — even if I’m still going to be working, and it’s still going to be cold. There will be sun however! 🌞

This week I’ve started playing around in Canva, which is a graphic design platform. I am using the free version while I’m learning, but I am slowly creating some more professional looking Pinterest pins and other images that I’m using out there on social media. The learning curve is still a bit steep for me — I am not very good with photo editing or layouts. The nice thing about Canva is there are lots and lots of free templates one can choose from and tweak colors, fonts, positioning of text, etc. For anyone lacking skills in this department, the Canva platform is very handy.

Plans for the weekend include one meeting that couldn’t be scheduled during Mon-Fri, some studying (Korean and Spanish), and reading, and a bunch of knitting washcloth samples. But I will also find some time to play video games. 😀 I need a little escape as well this weekend.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday, and a great start to the weekend. Enjoy!

Goodbye February

Happy March! I’ve been busy with all sorts of stuff today: some remaining tax to-do’s for our upcoming appointment, little action items because it’s the start of a new month, and even a bit of cleaning/straightening around the office, just to set the tone for the week.

I’m considering making another cup of tea and starting on the fourth washcloth for this bundle. For the moment though, I’m just listening to the winds roar outside. The rain has finally moved on, but it’s -=windy!

Hope you’re having a great start to the week.
