Day 17, a day of relative rest

Hi All! I am still plugging away at my advent calendar, and it’s day 17. We received a very gentle colored liquid lipstick today, likely because of yesterday’s strange blue matte offering.

I am not going to lie, it’s a relief, especially since I work today. I paired this liquid lip with my too faced sweet peach palette. I really need to use that palette more, it’s just lovely! In fact, over the year I’ve amassed so many palettes that it can be tough to decide which to use, I like them all so much. There are two more lipstick shaped doors that occur on work days so there are still two more chances that I’ll have to wear something terrible to work. It’s the last week before the holiday, many people are already gone or will be gone soon, and I almost relish the idea of wearing a “terrible” (to me) lip color at work. could be fun!

And what might there be for those who are here for the knitting? A finished object!


I am absolutely thrilled with my rhythmical lines cowl. It’s huge! It loops nicely twice around my neck, I am wearing it today. I used up every last bit of the wool though there’s still a fair amount of silk left over. I will absolutely be knitting this again, probably soon. I adore it.

This brings me to 83% of my goal of 40 projects this year. I’ve come to terms with the fact I won’t hit that goal, but I am still trying to work my way just as close as is possible. I think I’ll be able to claim 36 out of 40 in the end.

And that’s it for today! I am working my way toward time off. We are still unsure of a potential extra day off, so I either have 4 or 5 more work days before a holiday break. I should have a major project off my work desk either today or tomorrow, so that’s exciting as well.

  1. Much nicer lipstick!!! 😉

    And the cowl is lovely! I bet you ARE pleased with it! And nice to have some pretty silk leftover for another project some day.

    How are you doing on your knitting versus spinning goals?

    • Well-knitmeter doesn’t seem to be working properly for me, so I don’t exactly know. But, last time it was working, which was quite awhile ago, it was 7 miles spun and 12 miles knit. So I think it’s fair to say I’ve achieved or will achieve that goal. Knitmeter has been quite sketchy in general these past two years for me, so I am going to just not use it at all next year. I will find other ways to track my progress.

      • That’s a drag that it isn’t working! Of course, you can create a spreadsheet but that will not be as easy to use. Hmmm something for Ravelry to track?
