The holidays keep my busy...

I had really great intentions for blogging all throughout the holiday, I really did!  But then I got home, and I had time off, and I had a million projects to finish, and I rediscovered my NaNovel...  Life kind of got the best of me, unfortunately.  But on the bright side, I've been having a great holiday!

I managed to finish two knitting projects, and I've almost used up the yarn that I've purchased for another, which means I've only got two skeins to go, then the border, then I'm done that one, too!  I want to get my boxes open again (since it looks like I won't be moving into the new house until at least February), and pull out some more projects to finish.  I'm a finishing machine!

Of course, all I really want to do is start a new project...

But I can wait, really!  I think I mentioned that I've joined Ravelry, and it's definitely making me want to finish things.  I hate seeing all the WIP tags - they just remind me that I have a hard time finishing what I've started.  Granted, a couple of my projects are big, long-term projects... I've got at least two queen-size blankets that I'm working on, plus three baby blankets, plus a sweater.  Those all get, well, boring after a while.  I'm getting better at finishing the other, million, little projects I have, though.  I've got the yarn and the pattern for a set of wrist warmers for my sister, and those will be the second-next project I start once I'm done with all the holiday fun (the first will be a set of maternity scrubs for my cousin).

Hmm... this blog is supposed to be my writing blog, but this is a very craft-related update!  But really, that's what I've been doing lately, in addition to working on "Happily Ever After" (my NaNovel).  If you want to read more about my crafting fun, check out my craft blog!

Hi writer lady. I had this funny feeling that someone was following me and then I looked around and there you were. I was gonna follow you back, but you don't seem to have a follow thingy.

Very clever. Are you part ninja? Cuz ninjas follow people and can never be followed back.

Totally part ninja. The other part is pirate. It's kind of messy some days...
