Doodle-head Stitches Episode 37

Hobby juggling

Thanks for watching!

Show Notes

  • Josephine Shawl #2 - almost through the first ball (of 2)
  • Breathing Space sweater - started the short rows of striping
  • Nyan cat sock-along - first sock complete, just started a few rows of ribbing on the second sock

Cross Stitch & Embroidery
Miscellany
  • More gaming! Which is why I don't have more progress on projects - Pokemon Go was my gateway drug to other Pokemon Games and several other RPGs (role-playing games). I picked up Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon X, as well as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Fire Emblem Awakening, and I've downloaded a demo of Bravely Default. CC and I are still thoroughly enjoying Borderlands 2.
  • I attended a Yoga 'sampler' class last week, and it has spurred me to trying out some other yoga classes. With my sedentary day job, and hobbies that are mostly sedentary, I think it will be very good for me to go to a structured class and then perhaps reinforce that with home practice.

The nails are really short, but wearing Orly April Rain today.
