So like, I read one of mrknittle’s posts and he mentioned doing a Couch to 5K and I couldn’t help but to ask what plan he was following, because I need to get off my ass this year. I need too.
SO! After hearing his response I am going to do it. Tomorrow I’m going to go buy some running shoes. I’m going to print out the workout schedule. I’m going to download that app. And i’m going to get off my ass and run. I can do this.
I can do this.
So, thank u Mr. Knittle for posting that one post that seemed to motivate me enough to actually do this. I really appreciate it.
Also, I hope you guys don’t mind, but I will probably use this account as a Journal to keep things updated. So I can feel like I’m making progress. I’ll label them all as Couch to 5k so you can blacklist if you want. :)
I finished the quilt top today!!
I was working on it at my aunts so I’m going to have to go back to her house to finish it the next chance I get. She lives 3hrs away, so I’m not sure when that will be.
But as soon as it’s done I’ll post better pictures!
I am so super proud of myself for this shit. u have no idea.
QUILTING! *throws hands in the air*
So, I’m learning how to quilt…
Wish me luck on making my first one! :D
and I have come to remember that backwards knitting is one of the best knitting techniques in existence. \o/
And I bought a lot of yarn and a few patterns!
Sadly I forgot to write down fiber content on these and I don’t have the cards to tell you where they’re from and as I am house sitting and not currently at home. My apologies. If you have any questions feel free to ask and I can update tomorrow with the seller. :)
My mom picked this yarn out and paid for it because she wanted me to knit her the shawl. It’s a beautiful entralac shawl and I am actually very excited to work on it. I just have to find the motivation to wind the yarn.
The yarn on the left is a worsted weight yarn and it’s for another shawl as is the yarn on the right, though that yarn is lace weight. I am so so excite to knit all of these shawls. :D
and to top it off Mom bought me this little guy:
His name is Wyn after one of my OC’s. He is super soft and absolutely precious. I’m going to knit him a small hat and scarf and ahhh yes.
And by work I mean draw and make vinyl cutouts of things I don’t need.
I REMEMBERED THAT KIRBY EXISTED!! GOODNESS U HAVE NO IDEA:
and Pokemon (plus a wild Godzilla):
Hey so I rarely get on the computer now. At least, when I do I rarely use tumblr.
I may update every now and then, but for now I’m taking a good long break.
I have started using Twitter more often. Posting updates there is much easier than logging on here and updating and the tumblr phone app is terrible so, if you want to keep up with my projects I suggest following me on Twitter. :)
You can find me here: KnittedOrange
I may occasionally update with a Vlog as well, which I will also announce on twitter. So, just kind of keep up with me there.
LOVE YOU GUYS!
Scarf update. It’s curling in, but when I block it, it will hopefully fix itself and not do the thing.
Adorable little bird prints.
I know the bird landed normally, but imprints like this always make me laugh because it looks like they crash.
