Wedding Books!

Finally finished the wedding photo book from Mixbook!

They arrived today and they look great, so I'm pleased.  The big one that I plan to keep at our house was delivered to the shipping/receiving area @ work instead of my building (darn UPS), so still haven't seen that one, but the little ones I got just fine.  Soft-cover about 8-9" squar(ish), and beautiful.

I'm very happy with how they turned out, even though I didn't get them done in time for our anniversary :)

Learning = Affective Context

Awesome video explaining "Affective Context" which explains why we might want to move toward a "pull" learning model instead of a "push" model - because it works better!

What do you think? good for a "rotund" girl, or not so much?

Those notebooks I mentioned? STILL AWESOME!

I love my Circa Notebook!!!  I think if I had known about this thing longer, I could have been a much more organized person.

Drawback: I have too many projects to fit all in one book! hahahaha :) I've already added a set of 10 tabs, and then added sub-tabs that are stick-on ones from Avery because I just needed more than 10 divisions - sheesh!  do you think maybe there's a lot going on at work?  I certainly do...

I have already printed, punched and added documents of my own: a tab index, training program calendar, to-do lists, and a cheat sheet for "SMART" goals.  So far, I obviously really like this whole Circa/Rollabind design :)

Summer Fair Isle

It's done! And I think it turned out quite well - not perfect, but for a first attempt, I'll certainly take it! :)
Fair Isle Jacket by Debbie Bliss, from Essential Knits for Kids.
She likes it, and is willing to wear it, so that's a good thing ;)
There's a funky messed up part right in the center next to a button, but oh well!
I think next time I make it, if I do, I would make the cuffs of the sleeves a little wider - cast on more stitches & reduce the steepness of the increases - because they're a bit tight.
Ultimately, I'm pleased & would do it again!  I just have to figure out how to carry the color to another row without messing up my stitches... or maybe I should just cut the yarn on every row, or do an extra stitch or two at the ends of the rows...  Advice anyone?
