MSPT is my new personal slogan. I’ve been looking for a pretty chalkboard, or a pretty frame I can turn into a chalkboard, but no luck so far. Make Something Pretty Today. That’s my new slogan. There’s always an hour left at the end of the day, right? Or in the morning, instead of reading all the internet news. Make Something Pretty.
My alternate slogan is Make Something Better. Take a thrifted item and turn it into something a little nicer than what it was.
Can’t be too hard, right? The project doesn’t need to be finished every day, just put some time into getting it done.
I’ve been working on fingerless mitts. These took about 2 hours per each to knit.
I used needles about half the size of the gauge recommended, but they still fit. I don’t have packs of double-pointed needles in every size, I have to guess!
It’s amazing how much warmer keeping the bits covered that get left out makes you feel. I’ve been wearing them, and I love them. I don’t have a pattern to refer you to, these were from a knitting calendar Lori gave me last Christmas. It’s taken me all year to get around to starting on the projects, there’s about 10 more I want to knit.
Did you MSPT?
