I’ve been spending my daily time on WWS as much as possible, since first drafts have never been my problem, and editing and finishing things and letting people read stuff have.
A friend told me to do a contest, so I wrote a 2000-word story using the same main character from the haunted house project, which now has to be cut down to 1300-1500 words, but I have a month…
“Wind/Water/Salt”. I've hung onto this post for a week now, hoping I'd manage to get chapter 4 posted to OWW. I did take up Chapter 1 OWW commentary. I so wanted to put up Chapter 5 as well but I just couldn’t get it together.
Got back 2 but one was an EC so it was worth it.
I have come up with an amazing (!) process for getting through the crits people give me. I read the chapter first to myself with some goal in mind, and realize WHAT CRAP it is. Then I read those other assessments that aren’t nearly so harsh.
Ann Boleyn (1998). Working the body down from the armpits, I did three quarters of a pattern repeat (the complete rep is 66 rows). If I can do 16 rows per week I might finish this by fall. That would be awesome.
Okracoke cardigan (Shirley Paden). Started the month with about 5 inches of back. Now I have 7.5.
Sheer Beauty (Knit, Swirl). Started the month with five bands done. Did nine more.
Wrenna (French Girl Knits). I need something smaller to work on so I get the satisfaction of finishing something like ever. Also, I was sort of gifted all of my SO’s mother’s yarn, so I have a lot, and there’s a memorial for her in a couple of weeks, so I thought to wear something made from her yarn to that would be nice. It’s about a third done.
