I finished Elijah’s doll, but I still need to make all of her clothes.
I’d say I’m about a third of the way done Steve’s Valentine’s Day gift. I should really be much further along by now. I just got to a step that is somewhat tedious and while normally I wouldn’t mind I haven’t been in the right head space for it lately. I like to be able to make things with loving intention. Forcing myself to work on it when I’m having trouble paying attention just seems wrong, so I’ve been putting it off. I’ve been regressing health-wise lately and I’ve forgotten how much of an impact that has on my work.
We are having some cold weather here now, though not nearly as cold as in some parts of the country I’m told. Over the weekend I found that Galen suddenly didn’t have anything for his feet. He has some thin socks, but all of his booties where suddenly either lost or dirty, too small or in need of repair. So on Sunday I knitted him a pair of thick socks. I’ve got a second pair on needles now (I’m about to turn the heel on the first sock).
I have a lot of work to do. I haven’t started the boys’ Valentine’s presents yet. Galen’s first birthday is exactly a week after Valentine’s day. I have his present planned out, but I’m still in the gathering supplies phase. I still want to make him some slippers as well. And my parents are coming for a couple of days in this time. I guess I’ll be rather busy for a couple of weeks!
