Yes, there will be scissors (just not today)
Extreme Makeover: Bohus Edition Part II

#Womanwhogetsshitdone

If you're not on Twitter, you might not be familiar with the hashtag.  It's a way to categorize tweets by a topic so others can see what's "trending".  They are also turning into a way to be quite pithy in tweets as hashtags are often used to label one's own tweets or be sarcastic or just add something else that's a bit random.  For example:

I vote that all Monday work be replaced with naptime. All those in favour please signify. #motioncarried #adjourned.

I love hashtags and the way people use them.  I started the #womanwhogetsshitdone hashtag over the summer when I was doing home reno and it's carried to other parts of my life and other twitter folk have started using it too.  While I'm often #womanwhositsonherass it's nice to feel like there are productive times, even when I don't sit down to blog about them.

Today, I'm using #womanwhogestsshitdone on the blog because I want to write down the fibre stuff I want to get done this month:

Write up the hat pattern for this:

As requested by Xander, a floppy green toque aka Hat of Power (kid named it, not me).  He wears it night and day since I finished it and thought it would be a nice free pattern to have around.

Finish my Stage Door Cardi (just the sleeves to go).  I ran into some trouble with this because I didn't read the pattern closely enough and had to do some ripping.  Now I'm determined to get this finished asap so I can wear it a bit before the weather gets warm (it will get warm, right?).  

Nice colour eh?  Indigodragonfly Merino Silk in Edward discovers that wood chippers make excellent juicers (who can resist wool silk yarn with a name like that?!)

Spin. Spin. Spin.  I have some lovely shetland/bfl lamb first shearing on the go right now and I want to get it done and then make sure I have some spinning on the go all the time so I can keep practicing.  This is like any other manual skill, it needs regular practice to improve.

Get back to work on my Staked socks.  They're fun, but fiddly.  So many twisted stitches in a dark yarn.  I just need to commit a bit of time to them.  Besides I haven't made myself socks in a while.

Blog about the Bohus mods.  They're done.  They're great.  I just want time to compose a proper post.  Soon.

Reseam my Tempest Cardi.  I need to remove the waist shaping.  It doesn't suit me.  I'm going to give it the same treatment as the Bohus, but might use the sewing machine to stabilize stuff because while the yarn is grabby, I'm not completely convinced it will hold.  Me and sewing machines aren't the best of friends so this might take a bit of time to finish.

And I hope to spend more time here writing stuff down.  I always remember how much I like blogging while I'm doing it.  I just need to make time for it #womanwhostatestheobvious

Oh, my! I love indigodragonfly! Their yarn is always tempting me, and seeing it knit up so nicely just makes it harder to resist. Maybe for my next project, I'll grab some...

I hope you make all of your goals, and I'm looking forward to the resulting posts!

I love the purple shades in that yarn. It's beautiful.
