And just like that, the third quarter of the year is complete! Usually the summer flies by for me, but this quarter was exceptionally slow. I was just waiting for my new life to begin. Waiting to move into our very own house, waiting to defend my dissertation, and waiting to start my new job as a professor! Now all of that has happened and I can start to settle in to my new life. Time for more crafting! What I did not anticipate was this new hobby of mine…home improvement projects! Those projects will start to make an appearance on the blog as I complete them.
As a reminder, one of my resolutions this year was to keep track of three stashes – fabric, yarn, and fiber. I blogged about my first quarter stash report here and my second quarter stash report here. I did not knit as much this summer as last summer, but that was mainly a result of not participating in Camp Loopy. Which was one of my resolutions – to NOT participate in it this year. I had big plans to just knit with stash. But not participating also decreased my summer knitting productivity. And all that packing. There was a lot of packing. And unpacking. But I have high hopes for this last quarter!
