I Go To Work: Craft Book Challenge 2013

I don’t write I build a rhyme my craft
I draw plans draft the diagrams
An architect in effect
And it slams
And if it’s weak when I’m done
Renovate and build another one
I go to work
I go to work
I go to work
Like a boxer
Train the brain and aim

~ Kool Mo Dee — I Go To Work

(changes mine)

Is anyone else with me at the speed of light in which January passed by?  Holy Smokes Batman!!!!  Insane!!!!  It’s 5:40 pm and there’s still a hint of daylight in my neck of the woods — almost time for Spring and daylight savings time!  That said, like Kool Mo Dee,  it’s time to go to work.  If I don’t, the months will fly by without me having any crafty projects to show for them!  

February is the shortest month of the year so I’ve been trying to stay ahead of the craft book challenge by planning my projects for this month before January ended.  I’m also working on my time management issues.  To that end, I’ve scheduled crafting time in my weekly schedule. 

  This month, my goal is to:

  • complete one of my spring projects
  • start Z’s blanket
  • start my circles
  • start and possibly complete my first sweater
  • start my spinning adventures — go through the Respect the Spindle DVD
  • start my surprise project/technique

I’m not giving the project titles away, so there’s some element of surprise when I actually cast them on and show them on the blog.  😛   I have to say though, I thought working from my pattern stash was going to be boring, but so far, my biggest problem is deciding what to do next!

If anyone wants to join in the Craft Book Challenge (cute as a button Nizzy I’m calling you out 😛 ) feel free!  The participation rules are here.  I’ll be working through the month then posting my final updates on the last Sunday of the month!!!
