This was not the year we expected. On March 15, the province went into Covid-19 lockdown, and did not start to reopen for months. I figured I would have lots of time for my sewing and knitting, but I had not figured in the amount of time just managing the restrictions would take. No more jumping in the car to go out for a meal. All meals became home-cooked. (I think our takeout score is 3 pizzas and an order of Swiss Chalet.) Hours were often spent trying to figure out where I could get something I needed delivered to the house.
Sewing became mask-making for a time. Masks become very depressing and boring, rather quickly. When I had to make some masks, I would find myself procrastinating.
However, last night, I finished what is probably my last completed project for this year.
The hat, that I made too small for my grandson, has been reknit. It is now bigger, and longer, so I think it will fit.
Bear, who has happily modelled all my little hats (and masks) for years says that he can't do the grandson hats anymore, but he guesses this will fit.
So, my summary of finishes:
- 33 masks
- 5 tote bags
- 4 purses or pouches
- 2 table runners
- 1 quilt top
- 2 bucket hats
- 3 bibs
- 24 hand sanitizer pouches
- 1 pair of shorts
- 1 pair of fleece mitts
- 8 pairs of socks
- 3 shawls
- 2 scarves
- 1 baby sweater
- 1 baby bonnet
- 2 hats (or the same hat, twice)
I was surprised to discover that I have not done a lot of reading. I saw yesterday that this is a common problem right now, and the phase "readersblock" has been coined for it.
I'm not going to speculate on what might come next. I will be doing my planning, week by week, with lots of freedom to change my mind.
May you have a happy and safe New Year.
