There has been a fair amount of unraveling around here. Some of it even involves yarn. On Monday I began a new project with some lovely yarn. I was making progress, a very soothing and easy to memorize pattern. I need to do 15″ for the first section and about 2″ along, I noticed a mistake. I could not figure out what happened, tried frogging back, but then gave in and unraveled. I am back on track, in fact my edge stitch looks even better so it was a good thing.
I got the audio version on Anne Lamont’s new book. I have been to hear her speak numerous times but I can’t get to this book talk. I enjoy hearing her read her books. I also got a new book for our tiny person. The preschool teachers at my school really like this Easter book.
It is a short week and spring break begins on Friday. I am in need of a break and some time to tidy up a few things that have been unraveling around here. Be sure to visit Kat today for more Unraveled Wednesdays.
I have quite a collection of water bottles. I keep a 20oz cup on my desk at work. And every morning I fill one of my pretty water bottl s to take in the car – a lovely orange HydroFlask, a Mount Ranier bottle that was a gift from my sister, and my newest addition, a Lifefactory glass water bottle. I make every effort to drink 64 or more oz. of water every day. And while I like plain water, I also like to jazz it up a bit. My favorite combo, a slice of lemon, a slice of lime, some fresh orange juice, and a chunk of ginger. As we move into spring I will add some frozen cranberries or blueberries, apple slices, and maybe even cucumber to my water bottles.
How do you make sure to drink your water?
March was not a month for finishing things on my #17ufosin2017.
I made progress on my Orange cardigan and pulled out my Cuppa blocks for some more prepping. I did finish two pair of baby pants, three donation hats, and started a few new projects.
I am hopeful that I will have a few finished at the end of April. For now,
I am pleased with making progress.h

Will you be gentle? Or at least slow down the roller-coaster we have been riding the last few months?
I am hoping to cast on and get walking with the Healthy Knitter (I don’t have much success keeping up with knit-alongs but I am going to give it a go).
I have plans to eat well.
I am not going to join the very invitng journaling and creativity challenges that launch this month but I am looking forward to Just Five Things.
I am looking forward to some color – a Fitbit replacement, perhaps a new Bible.
Spring break is the next row on the calendar, Easter is coming, and my birthday wraps up the month. I am hopeful.
Thanks Carole and Kat for the invitation to welcome a new month.
