So here it is; the starburst pattern. I love it! The blue, green and pink all glow which always makes me smile. It really didn't take too long to make.
I improved a bit on how the band works that you make after you make the bracelet. Normally you just do a single chain to extend the band, but I put the two loops back on the loom and made a fish-tail pattern. I really like it better for looks and durability. Those long chains quickly can get over stretched. This is a nice fix for that.
Anyway, the trees sure are pretty here. It definitively looks like fall now. I am reminded that Yule is around the corner and I'm banishing that thought for now and trying to enjoy the now.
This is New Year for me and every year I make resolutions, if you will, that help to nurture my body, mind and spirit. I have been so lax lately...at least is seems so to me. But I still mange to to what needs to be done which begs to differ that maybe my view of "what I should be doing" should be reviewed.
I think my resolutions should look something like this:
Air - Stop being so hard on myself - no one can do everything - be content with what I do achieve
Fire - Get moving - I don't have to do something formal every day as long as I do something
Water - Stop apologizing for doing things that I love - if I enjoy it then there should be no guilt in that
Earth - To continue to be thankful for all the blessings I have, the people I know and the creatures I share my life with
Spirit - Take 5 minutes each day for spirit by myself without a phone, TV or anything else distracting and take one night a week for spirit at least
I feel so blah right now. The weather is changing. We just had a raging storm and it rained through most of Halloween. We made it out for about an hour before it got too bad and my son had a good time. Now the sun is out and it is almost balmy; that really messes with my head.
So before I complain too much - I hope you had a blessed and magical Halloween / Samhain.
I'm helping a friend out who is unable to knit so I will be working on her projects for a while. I'll show you when I figure out where she left off.
