I spent some time last night working on my Mystery Sock Along and made some good progress. I got the bead placement issue resolved - I think I was insufficiently caffeinated when I first read the instructions for Clue #2... All is good now and I am making progress :) I plan to do three repeats per leg - then I get to wait until Wednesday for the third clue! Here is what it looks like with one full repeat on the leg complete.
Today I plan to spend some time doing some arts projects. I got my new Moleskine book and will be using that as an art journal now. I changed my mind about using my little home-made journal. I will instead use that for regular journaling (writing out my thoughts when the mood moves me). I do like to decorate the pages a bit for that so that I am not writing on pain white (boring) paper. I find that I am more inclined to write more when I am eager to use up the paper so that I can decorate more pages. Here are a couple pictures that show what I mean by decorating my pages:
Today I also plan to soak and block my Mystery Shawl. I'll post pictures of that tomorrow!
