The Adventures of Productive Girl!

*When we last left our hero, Productive Girl was distracted, desperately trying to achieve some kind of normal admist the chaos of moving back in after a major home renno.  Productive Girl was productive in unpacking her house but had little to no time to devote to her favorite past time, knitting.  Projects were going un-knit and Productive girl was feeling a little like she was never NOT going to be unpacking/moving back in to a house again.

Thankfully our heroine's house is beginning to look more like a house and less like a construction zone.  So much so that Productive Girl has been able to log in some real progress this week on her Mystery Mitten.  {There was a touch and go moment last week where it looked like it might snow and make me a LIAR out of my commitment to get these done before the first snow- but thankfully it didn't snow and I'm still on "target" to finishing prior to flakes.}


Oh NO!  It looks like the evil Super-Villian, the PROCRASTINATOR! (Muhahahahahaha), may be trying to throw our hero off course... it appears Productive Girl is going to run out of black yarn prior to the finish of the thumbs.


Our Productive Girl is trying not to hyperventilate over this set back- and plans to hit Michaels for more black fingering weight yarn, (where dye-lots didn't seem to matter last time she ran out of this yarn) and get these mittens finished.  Also, Productive Girl wants me to mention that her MiL has found her the BEST. MITTENS. EVER (for someone NOT Productive Girl) and Productive girl cannot start these in good conscience until she gets the Mystery Mittens done and a good jump on the blanket.

Productive Girl has also fallen into some other distractions this week that are slowing her progress on the Argyle Blanket.  Productive Girl conquered her "Mount Everest" in baking and successfully made French Macarons.


{I MADE THESE!  WITH MY HANDS!  And ok... my oven too.  BUT O!M!G! I am so stinkin' proud of myself for making these!!  It is physically impossible for me to talk about making these and not use exclamation! points!  !!!!!!!)

Productive Girl also devoted an afternoon/evening of valued knitting time to unpacking/hanging the Crystals on her Chandelier.  While it was a total time SUCK- look how pretty!  (JUST LOOK HOW PRETTY- I love this light SOOOO much.)


It's good to see you get some stuff done Productive Girl!  Keep fighting on!  Stay Productive!
