Craft or Bust Week 31 Check-In and Roundup (August 1-7)

Holy crap, I haven't posted here at all in a week. Well, it's been a busy week, and now I'm in New York City for a little while, helping a friend get sane and running around feeding my creative muse with all NYC has to offer...

Roundup of Week 30: What We Crafted From July 25-31

  • Jessica knit another two inches of her dad's sweater back, finished her secret design project and typed up the pattern (COOL!), baked cookies, cast on and ripped out Karl's gloves the third time (alas ;)), and put in a job application. And yes, twelve hours of knitting is quite respectable. ;)

Check-in for Week 31: What Have You Done Lately? (August 1-7)

Lame Manhattan picture, August 2010This has been a brain-altering week; on Sunday I bought a last-second ticket to New York City, and on Friday, I was here — and I still am! I did get a bit of crafting done, though: Monday I started working on a secret costume project. Tuesday, I cast on for a hooded shrug that I'm test-knitting and knit a bunch of one sleeve. Wednesday, I did a lot, but didn't actually make anything. Thursday, I knit some more of the hooded shrug in between preparations for the NYC trip, and packaged up the beaded Waves of Compassion shawl pin finally. Friday, I flew to New York ... and still managed to knit some of the hooded shrug. Saturday, I explored the city! But I admit I didn't actually make anything. I did watch a bunch of short plays and movies, and saw a scene from Wicked in the Gershwin Theater on Broadway, though ... so I watched creativity. Maybe that counts? ;)

My one FAIL has been that I actually missed a day of writing — yesterday. I don't feel horrible about it, since I knew I would probably do that at some point, and being in New York City for the first time in my adult life is a pretty good excuse. ;)
