I admit defeat. I have given up on my 31 Days of Sewing Series from the month of October. If you want to read what I did accomplish during this series, click here. I will post more updates in the future.
I was eager to finish another sewing project, but my sewing machine has broken and needs repairs.
The last time I took it in for repair, it was a 3 month wait. Yup.
Apparently, fixing sewing machines is a lost art. At least around here it is.
So, I admit that I have once again started something that I am not able to finish. Big surprise, right? I bet you have NEVER DONE THAT.
My husband loves to remind me that I struggle in this area.
In my defeat, I sat down in front of the TV to watch the Hallmark channel’s Christmas movie marathon and I conquered the Arm Knit Scarf that you see here.
It’s super easy and only takes two balls of yarn.
It is completely knit on your arms, no needles or hooks involved.
If I can do it, so can you.
It takes less than 30 minutes, even if you have never knitted in your life.
I love how it turned out.
Makes up for my lack of success in other areas.
I found this great video with step by step instructions. This gal has very clear pictures and it is easy to follow. I love that she calls it “Arm Knitting for the Clueless“. I definitely fit into that category!
Give it a try, you’ll love it!
I had so much fun making the first scarf, that I had to make a second one. I envision this scarf with my favorite blue jeans and a comfortable sweater. Cozy!
It would also make a great gift. Christmas is just around the corner!
Speaking of Christmas, I have to sit down and do some planning. I normally have planned out my holiday decor, food and such by this time of year but this year, I am struggling for direction.
I don’t like struggling. I don’t function well without a plan. Direction normally comes rather easily to me.
Not having it makes me stressed out, and it shouldn’t. Life is complicated enough without having to worry about the simple things.
Tomorrow is another day!
How do you find your direction and inspiration?
