First of all, there won’t be a lot of “making” just yet because I don’t believe in being wasteful! Part of this whole, do it yourself project is to not just throw out perfectly good products just because -someone- wants to make a mess in the kitchen! For science! So I have to use up all the household and health and beauty products before I can make my own. Which, in some ways, is pretty great because it means that once those products are gone, I will have some pretty great empty containers to fill. Judging by my current situation, I will end up making toothpaste and lip balm first. Followed by floor cleaner and deodorant. So, you have that to look forward to!
I will try to post as often as possible but I am now a FULL TIME COLLEGE STUDENT! So I will be working hard at getting good grades. Rest assured that I will be taking pictures of the things I make and posting them as quickly as I can.
I have also deemed Mondays “Spinning Days.” So I will be spinning fiber rather than knitting on Mondays and hopefully posting something spinning related as I go. I do not have anything for today because school started on Friday and all my professors decided to cram Week 1 and Week 2 assignments into this week and I have been busy playing catch up! 🙂 My goal is to become more even handed. I got a free copy of Spin Off and I would love to be skilled enough to spin yarn for my own sweater! That just feels so far away for me right now, but with hard work I’m sure I will get there! I have been looking at several different spinning books but have not decided what is right for me just yet. Next week there will be pictures of what I am currently spinning.
And as a personal note, I will be seeing a chiropractor on Wednesday and I could not be happier!
