Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!

As you can see I have deleted MANY items that I want to be done by the end of June this year. What I have left probably will not be completed but I am sure some of it will.
I have been working on LaLa's shawl and it is fun and pretty easy but with over 200 stitches per row it is very slow going.
I do have a pair of socks on my needles. They are for my hubby but at the moment I am concentrating on Dishclothes. I needed a project that was quick and satisfying. I can finish one in about a day or two depending on how much other stuff I have to do around the house and at my office.
I am still trying to figure out what I am going to do for a list for next year's YoP. I have lots of projects that I want to complete by Christmas for gifts and I want to make sure those or on the list. But after Christmas I will need to figure out what I am going to do to challenge myself. If any of you have ideas please post them in the comment area.
I do want to stash bust during this next YoP. I didn't do so well on that this year. I have LOTS of sock yarn. Enough to make about 30 pairs of socks. That is the yarn that I do not have booked marked yet as to what I am going to make with it. I guess I could just challenge myself to make LOTS of socks in LOTS of different patterns. But there is no way I could do 30 pair of socks in 6 months. Nope, not happening.
Now onto a more personal note.
I have really been struggling with my journey to a healthier me. I kind of plateaued for a while and then some of those pounds started coming back for a visit. Well, I have successfully evicted them again along with a couple of their friends.
I know, it is like a dirty word to me too. But my DH got me a stand to put my bike in and now I can ride in the comfort of my own home. It is just too dang hot to be walking or riding right now here in the desert of Arizona. SO I have been pretty faithful to at least get 15 minutes a day in on the bike and most of the time I get 20-30 minutes in. I take one or two days off a week total to let the muscles regroup.
I leave the end of this month for Texas to visit my grandsons and their parental units. We only see them once a year so I am really looking forward to the trip. Hubby is coming along too and we are both excited. I plan on taking my craftiness with me and I will try and post as much as possible from there.
