Knitted Friend

I found an adorable ["Chubby Chirp"] pattern on [Ravelry] and went to using up some chunky scrap yarn. It's in 6 wpi yarn on size 10 needles.

The pattern is from Rebecca Danger of [The Big Book of Knitted Monsters] and she has several other free patterns available!

I only started knitting at the end of last year and I can't believe how fun it is. Now I can fit in with all the other knitter/crocheters at sci-fi cons!

Cleaning Schedule!

Pinterest is super-fun and I want to follow your boards. Here's [mine].

I came across Becky's series of posts at Organizing Made Fun about [How to Have a {fake} Immaculate House]. She posted a copy of her cleaning schedule and said she spends about fifteen minutes a day on each task.

I made mine and put it on the fridge! It helps coordinate chores between me and Richard because we have easy goals for the day. Wednesdays? Someone should vacuum. Mondays? Someone should wipe down the guest bathrooms.

I hope I can stick to it! It's made things easier so far, and she emphasizes that it's TOTALLY FINE to skip something one week.
Anyway, thanks to Becky for the jump-start on actually writing down a plan.
