The first week back after a long holiday is always the hardest. I also find it’s where I tend to lose focus of my goals…and so it went this week for journaling and the yarn diet. While I managed to journal four nights in a row, I missed three by week’s end.
I also fell off the destash wagon visiting a charming LYS seven minutes from a conference I was attending for work. I don’t feel as badly about that relapse since I bought a non-fingering weight yarn in a 100% marled alpaca. They also had some knitting notions that I’ve only seen online – bamboo chunky circs and a Knit Kit.

But how to explain the sock yarn purchase? FOMA (fear of missing out). One of my favorite dyers posted a 24-hour- only skein to celebrate her 6,000th sale on Etsy. Those exclusive speckles did me in.

This week has shown me that it’s easy to get off track, so before I go too far off the rails, I thought I would try something new to keep me organized – a weekly check in.
Hope you’re having a better week keeping your resolutions and making 2016 the most colorful and creative it can be. Bon Tricot!
