Rainy Days and Planners
This week before the daily rainy days, we were walking our usual daily route. Most of the leaves have fallen but there are some trees that are resisting, mainly the catalpa trees. Maybe we are on our third rainy day, I've lost count. Rainy dreary days are perfect for knitting endlessly.
My new planner arrived on Monday afternoon as well as a new fountain pen and new ink. I've been setting it up so that I start in November. This planner is replacing two to four notebooks or loose pages. I am focusing on daily tasks, menu planning, exercising, budgeting and my schedule. Migrating information from one location to another has been fun. Nothing motivates me more than a new system. I'll keep you updated with my progress. The fountain pen is a TWSBI Eco pen and my new ink is 54th Massachusetts Noodler's ink which is a blue/black ink - I love it. (I purchased through JetPens this is not an affiliate link)
I continue to use my creativity planner as well. That holds my knitting lists and creative pursuits.
I finished the blue baby blanket and will hopefully have the photos ready for next week.
Frodo has been a very wet dog this week and so he's been extra snuggly and waiting for me to put a blanket on him so he can get warm.
I started a baby cardigan for my nephew's baby-to-be a few days ago. Knitting a baby blanket is speedy knitting and maybe this will be done in a day or two as well. Later today I will be digging through the button stash to see if I have anything that coordinates with the wool.
