This week is going slow. Maybe by the end of the weekend I will get something finished. I am going to push to finish the socks - then the cardigan. That will put me one over my goal for knitting this year. Hopefully if I can get motivated I should have the number of sewing items finished that I wanted to do this year as well. Working on cleaning up the sewing room so I will be organized for next year. My Goal will again be not to buy anything until everything is used up. I didn't accomplish that this year but there is always another year!

MCL you always accomplish so much - send the energy this way please.
