WIPocalypse – January 2014 Check-in

After a productive start to the year, my stitching has slowed down a bit over the last couple of days. My latest round of Coursera classes has begun. (Modern Mysticism and Psychological Thought; Child Nutrition and Cooking; Introduction to Communication Science; Human Evolution: Past and Future; and Roman Architecture. Quite a mix, eh?) So I’ve been knitting in front of the computer, rather than stitching on the sofa. But, since it is the day it is, it is time for the WIPocalypse check-in.

Torah Stitch by Stitch (WIP)

Torah Stitch by Stitch (WIP)

I’ve still managed to make some progress on my most important WIP. The verse section of my Torah Stitch by Stitch is very nearly complete, and just in time. I’m coming up on my deadline of the end of February. I’ve still got the border to do, but I should still be able to finish it up (classes, trip, and jury duty πŸ™ notwithstanding).

WIPocalypse 2014 largeI guess that just leaves me to explain what WIPocalypse is. It is simple: work a “work in progress” (WIP) and post about it on the check in day every month. It is hosted by Melissa over at Measi’s Musings, and you can find out all about it here.

This year she has added some prompts for each month, and for January we are to introduce ourselves and talk about our goals.

Well, I am me. πŸ˜‰ I’ve been posting as Silverlotus for about as long as there as been a reasonable accessible Internet (and even back in the BBS days), in various places including RCTN, the TWBB, the Wagon, etc.Β  I stitch, knit, crochet and sew. Teresa Wentzler is my favourite designer, although there are many others I love (Dragon Dreams and Enchanting Lair come to mind right away, along with Passione Ricamo and Mirabilia).

My goals for this year have been laid out in a couple of other posts. But, in a nut shell, I want to finish my Torah Stitch by Stitch, a stocking for my mom, knit a hat for my husband (it is almost done), a sweater for my son (for next fall, so no rush), and then do stuff for me. πŸ˜‰

    You’ve made great progress on the Torah verse, despite all the other things you have going on. Love the mix of classes that you are taking – sort of look like a list I would put together if I could.

    Have fun stitching and meeting your goals this year. I look forward to seeing your progress throughout the year.

    Eclectic mixture of courses, how nutritious is a child I wonder?

    Nice to read a little more about you. The favourite designer is not a surprise but I found it a difficult question to answer, there are so many people I really rate since discovering the internet relatively late in my stitching life.

    Your course work sounds interesting – and any excuse to sit and knit is a good one!! Good luck finishing your Torah Stitch by Stitch!!
