Tour de Fleece Days 21 & 22

No pictures. Didn’t spin on Day 21, I did spin some today, the last day, but it’s the same ITW Captain Tightpants, so I’m not bothering with another pictures until it’s done. I have a personal rule to never take pictures when I don’t have pants on, and I don’t feel like getting dressed :D

I didn’t get as much done this year as I’d like to have, but that’s all right, I had fun, and got some yarn done, so that’s better than the beginning!

Once I get this braid spun up and plied, then washed and finished, I’ll post a Tour wrap-up.

My favorite things! (this week)

6 pocket Midori Traveler’s Notebook folder tutorial:

Bullet Journal – I think I may convert my blog planning to this method. It seems a little more flexible than the current method I am using.

The Little Printer – it’s a little ticker tape kind of printer that you can send stuff to and subscribe to “feeds” for it to print out. It’s pretty expensive ($199 US) but it just seems endearing and fun!

Here’s a song from the old video game The Neverhood. I adore the soundtrack to the game, it’s so much fun.

Outfit of the Day – 7/23

Project 333 is a minimalist challenge to dress only using 33 pieces of clothing & accessories for 3 months. To track what I am actually using in this quarter’s capsule, I am sketching my outfits on Monday-Wednesday. It’s also good sketching practice!

Today’s sketch is rough. I couldn’t get the mix on my shirt color right – I need to pick up a nice turquoise as a convenience color. I thought I was starting to get the proportions right, but today was difficult.

Outfit of the Day - 7/23

The boots are the same ones I wore on the first and third days. And the skirt is the same one from the first day, but it’s the black side instead of the patterned grey side.

Tuesday’s outfit was pretty simple – just my Mind the Gap tee that I got in the UK and my skinny jeans. I forgot my mala beads this morning. I also wore a pair of shoes that are technically not in my 33, they are my yard work shoes. But I was feeling lazy, and felt like wearing something that was easy to kick off. I really should throw them away – they have a hold in one toe, but I love my skull shoes. I am stubbornly hanging on to them.

Tour de Fleece – Days 17 & 18

I got some bad news from my optometrist on Monday – my eye infection went into a sty on my eyelid and the medication isn’t helping. I have to go to an ophthalmologist next week to see about further treatment.  So I was not in the best of moods, and decided to go ahead and use the rest day instead of making up the day I skipped on Saturday.

I did get some spinning done tonight – I finished spinning a quarter of the ITW Captain Tightpants. The first half of it is still being spun on my Turkish drop spindle.
