NaNoWriMo (aka National Novel Writing Month)!!

Yay!! It almost here.

The challenge…write 50,000 words in 30 days! Are you up to it? We’ll see if I am. NaNoWriMo Check it out!!!

Okay, really I was just sitting around the other day and I thought What else could I volunteer to do that I don’t really have time for? And then it hit me. November is National Novel Writing Month. I also found out it has an online group (squeee). Of course I joined. Two of my friends at work even joined! Now, I did the math and it looks like 1667 words (just under 7 pages) a day will be the pace to set. (Hehehe). ‘Cause I’ve got time for that, right? I haven’t finished the fantasy novel I’ve been working on for the last 6 months (it is over 50,000 words though), I’m still working on the baby’s hoodie, I have a list of knitted items to finish before Xmas, in addition to the two afghans I need to finish. Still I’m all a flutter over this thing. I can’t wait to get started.

Sunday kicks off the events (and there actually are some kick off events check out the site and find one in a city near you), so I will be much looking forward to sitting before a blank page with a new idea. I have no idea what I’m going to write about yet, but since it’s just for fun & experiment, I think I’ll try something new.

Hope to see you there! Happy Friday! 😛


Baby Yeti, part 2

Okay, so I may be in a bit of a bind on this one. I’ve finished all but the hood, and the sewing. Unfortunately, I quit working on the hood because I panicked. I don’t think I have enough of the pink yarn. Quite frankly it will be a huge disappointment for me if I have to order more and wait on it, especially since I’ve only got about 10 rows left to do. 😦

More updates later.

Baby Yeti

My newest project Baby Yeti. Too cute isn’t it. I started it last weekend, and I’m hoping to finish pretty quickly. I bought the pink & black plush on sale at my LYS (they’re moving & I got a great deal). I was really excited to find it on sale. I wanted purple, but for half price, who cares? 😛

I’ve finished the back & I’m about halfway through the front. Wish me luck on progress.

Have a good weekend all! 😀
