knitting:

fresh off the needles! πŸ’œ yarn is @knit_picks Felici in the Ever After color way pattern is a vanilla with a FLK heel

I finished a second pair of Knit Picks Felici socks, this pair is for my 11 year old daughter. She said she’d really like a pair too after I finished the socks for her sister. She put them on as soon as I finished and has been wearing them a lot already.

after almost four years of knitting, it's now 195 squares big πŸ’– probably a few more years to go

I finished knitting some squares into my cozy memories blanket to square it off. It’s now at 195 squares, still not big enough but I’m still so happy having this one to pull out every so often.

I’ve also finally got a sock on the needles for me! not pictured right now, it’s a blueberry waffle sock in some gorgeous Flock Fibre Studio yarn.

crocheting:

my magic ball seems big enough to let me crochet on this for a good while! it's been almost a year since I've had it out  #craftastherapy #crochetrabbithole #crochetersofinstagram

I pulled out my scrappy granny stripe blanket recently because I thought the magic ball I was making was finally big enough to use for quite awhile. It shrank so fast sadly! I’ll be putting it aside again soon 😦

trying to get the hang of tapestry crochet today

I’ve had this bunny pattern in my ravelry queue for quite a long time and I decided it was time to finally crochet it. It’s done as tapestry crochet, not hard at all but it took me a little bit to get the hang of keeping the tension on my yarn consistent. You can see in the face that I was struggling a bit but I didn’t want to rip back, so it’s staying that way. I’m really excited to see this one finished! I just need to stick to working on one thing.

reading:

I just finished reading Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. I loved the book so much! I really took my time with it because I just didn’t want it to end. It reminds me a little of the book Homegoing but it doesn’t go through as many generations as that book and everyone in the book knows each other.

After finishing Pachinko, I picked up The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. I only read about 1/4 of the book, it’s not terrible, it’s actually quite good but it’s so crazy and sometime unbelieveable that I just couldn’t keep reading it.

life:

My last update about my biopsy has an update, not a great one. I do have to go in for a lumpectomy in April now, it’s not my cyst they want to remove but the area next to it. The radiologists say that there wasn’t enough sample taken and they can’t see enough of it that it would just be safer to remove it just in case. I’m keeping myself positive because I really do still believe that there’s nothing major to worry about. Surgeries don’t happen so quickly here, so the fact that it’s moving so fast is a little unnerving but I’m trying to ignore that! It will all be totally fine.

Anyway, the kids are about to be off for Spring Break this week. I’m hoping this week that no kids will be sick, my nephew will be over with us and I have a couple fun outings planned. Also, I’m hoping it will warm up for next week, we’re back in the cold again, -26 with the windchill. blech! Spring needs to just stick around here already.
