"There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms. A physical, an emotional, a mental and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person."
Rumer Godden 1907 - 1998

A Knitter's Week
My Year of Projects started with 3 new knitting projects. Starting my list for the Year of Projects helped me work out how best to order these projects, the cast-ons were going to work like this:
Monday, cast on Renaissance MKAL and Unsinkable
Tuesday, knit night, work on Echo Flowers
Wednesday, wind yarn and cast on Sweet Dreams
Thursday, cast on Resolute Shawl
This will teach me to make plans, by Tuesday night I'd cast on Unsinkable and had made some progress with Echo Flowers, Renaissance MKAL had been started!
Wednesday night things started to go awry, the first clue on Renaissance MKAL didn’t look quite right so it was pulled out, restarted twice before I was happy with it.
Thursday I managed to wind the yarn for Sweet Dreams, then I worked on Unsinkable, the picture below gives an idea of progress and after playing around on my Ravelry forums, I found yet another group with a good-looking KAL to join in with. So time was spent deciding what would be good to knit
Friday, men’s semis at Wimbledon, decided starting Sweet Dreams and working on Unsinkable was my best bet for tennis drama knitting!
Saturday about 3am, everything I'd knitted on Unsinkable had to be ripped out! It amounted to 3 inches of stocking stitch. I'd miscounted the stitches at the start of the short rows. It took me most of Saturday on and off to get to the same point.
