Contest, News & Notes

I released 2 new patterns on 3/8/19: Ice Time Hat & Ice Time Cowl
 

The Ice Time Hat is a 2-color hat worked with mosaic knitting (so you’re never using more than 1 color in any given row). After the brim, you change colors every 2 rounds which I promise will have you saying “just one more round!” after each one. The pattern effect is achieved using slipped stitches and simple 1x1 cables. Perfect for even an adventurous beginner. If you like the hat, be sure to check out the matching Ice Time Cowl.

Check out #icetimehat on Instagram to find other color combinations that testers + knitters have used.

Yarn

  • Main Color used 80 yards / 73 meters | Contrast Color used 65 yards / 60 meters
  • Sample knit in Legacy Fiber Artz DK. Main Color= Vanilla Bean (cream) & Contrast Color= Grey Gardens (gray)

Finished Size

  • Size: 18 in. / 45.75 cm around & 9 in. / 23 cm tall
  • Fits head: 19-21.5 in. / 48.25-54.75 cm around
  • I’ve found it fits nearly every teen and adult I’ve tried it on. If you need a larger hat, you could try going up a needle size and using worsted weight yarn (be sure to check gauge first of course)
 
Ice Time Cowl

 

Yarn

  • Main Color used: 120 yards / 110 meters
  • Contrast Color used: 96 yards / 88 meters
  • Sample knit in Legacy Fiber Artz DK. Main Color= Vanilla Bean (cream). Contrast Color= Grey Gardens (gray)

Finished Size
* Size: 20.5 inches / 52 cm around & 12 in. / 30.5 cm tall

Life in Focus

I reviewed my January goals, progress, and what's working well for me in achieving my goals for the year!
 

Ask Me Anything

Suzanne emailed to ask "I would be interested in hearing you discuss why you prefer to use Evernote over the Notes app in the iPhone and how you shifted from one to the other. I use the Notes app by default but have been hearing more about Evernote. What are the pros and cons? Do you have any tips if I want to transition? Thank you for being a great knitting friend. "
 
I discussed Evernote and how I use David Allen's Getting Things Done Method
 

On a Happy Note

  • Booked a trip to Barcelona and Porto with my friend Laura. Do you have any tips? Please share in Episode 155 thread!
  • I did a massive clean out of the studio.
  • We bought a new fridge and finally have an ice maker for first time in 10 years.
  • I met up with my friend Robb hadn’t seen in awhile. We went to a jazz class together!
  • I got over the nasty cold/cough that’s going around in about a week. Seems like a record
  • We had our friends' daughters- Carina and Ella- for a sleepover. We had fun painting, building forts with the rubber puzzle piece floor mats. We watched a movie, ate Dan's snowflake pancakes and had a blast!
  • Mom’s birthday & Hattie’s first birthday- celebrated last weekend!

Quote of the Week

“Reviewing your past is one of the best ways to understand who you really are and how you’ll work best on a goal. Keep in mind that perfectionism can’t stand self-awareness. If you’re self-aware, you’re more likely to know and accept your limitations, which means you won’t fall for the promise of a perfect performance.”

Race in the knitting community has been a huge topic of conversation on social media lately. In this segment I shared some thoughts about how I'm trying to expand my horizons to be a better informed, more sensitive person. I hope you know that you are ALL welcome here in the Down Cellar Studio Podcast Community.
 
An interesting conversation to listen to is on Oprah's Super Soul Conversations Podcast. In December they did a 2 part episode with Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade.  Check it out here: Part 1Part 2

Quote of the Week
 
Thinking and doing, doing and thinking--these are the sum of all wisdom. Both must move ever onward in life, to and fro, like breathing in and breathing out. Whoever makes it a rule to test action by thought, thought by action, cannot falter, and if he does, will soon find his way back to the right road.
 
—Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Life in Focus

  • I talk more about my 2019 plans, 2 major goals, and the habits I'll be employing to help me get there.
  • Other things I keep in mind:
    • Your past is your teacher not your fortune teller (what can you learn from previous attempts, failures etc)
    • What can/what do I need to cut out? We often need to prioritize our goal over other less important things. Get clear about that up front.
    • Think ahead to what challenges you'll face and think about how to get around that.
    • Make a list of my fears. Writing them down helps!
    • Be ok with failure. Learn from it and move on. If I miss one day or one workout or one healthy meal, get right back on track at the next possible opportunity. "Growth is not in perfection, but in quickening your recovery time when you inevitably act contrary to your highest interests." – Neil Strauss
  • How I Track Progress
    • Weekly Evernote Note. List Quarterly, Monthly and Weekly Goals at the top. Then start a To-Do list for the week. The "to-do's" I add can be removed, moved to the next week or completed as I see fit.
    • Plan each week on Sunday, look at the calendar and plot out my open time.
    • Daily journaling of progress I'm making towards my two goals- paired with my existing habit of writing down my daily plan for water/food and movement.
 

On a Happy Note

  • Had a lovely visit with my dear friend Laura over the New Year's Holiday weekend
  • Watching: The Affair, Season 4. Escape at Dannemore. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Leah Remini; Scientology the Aftermath, Ray Donovan. The Mule (in theater)
  • Purging and clean out after the holidays!
  • New workout area I set up in the cellar!
  • Tree still up!

Quote of the Week

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
– Calvin Coolidge

Quote of the Week

 
“Ask yourself throughout the day, “what do I need to do in this moment to take care of myself?” If you can be aware of what legitimate needs and wants you’re not attending to, and then take actions to meet them on your own – or ask your partner for help if you can’t – that is the road to happiness.”
– Neil Strauss
