Mitten Monday!

It's still Monday here, barely. And it was a holiday as well, so that should explain some of my tardiness with the Monday Awesome post. The rest, well, I've been knitting. I knitted a mitten today. Which is pretty awesome if I say so myself. I shouldn't have started it, I have seven (I just counted) other projects started, but I wanted to be able to look at something finished. I grabbed the yarn for my dad's Christmas gift, and I made a mitten. Technically, it's not a finished project, one mitten is good, but two is done. But I have a mitten. Nice, spacious, tightly knitted, it'll be warm and appreciated. Sometimes you've got to grab a little idea you have and get it done, just so you can feel that bit of awesome. Especially in a WIP Push Month.

We had a fantastic Weekend Challenge this week, as well as some EPIC word wars. I would think that it's safe to say that we did over 15k just this weekend. We are so very NOT SHABBY! And then there's the WotD, and Flash challenges.

WE ARE ROCKING THIS MONTH!

And, oh yeah, OVER 9 MILLION WORDS this year!!! Who rocks more than us? NOBODY! :P

So for my awesomeness last week I have over 2500 words, progress on 6 knitting projects, and a MITTEN! This week I hope to do even better! How about you?

I hope to turn the words I jammed out on Friday night into a completed fic soon.

I have one WIP that is a chapter from completion, and another that should be done in two or three more. I'm hoping mid-September sees all that happen!

It's looking like a busy month in a lot of ways. I might have family visiting in a couple of weeks, and there are a couple of events I'm attending. Also am hoping to get back to 'Shut up and Write' one of these Wednesdays. Plus, I'm running another road race. That next race is a one-miler so there is more emphasis on speed- which I don't have, lol. So I mostly will aim to not embarrass myself and not worry about it too much beyond that. :)

And I guess that should do it!

We are all so awesome!!

And it sounds like you had a good week last week, too! Go you! I might be more productive this week now that I've fixed my mouse... amazing what new batteries will do for a device. :D

I did! Well, Friday on, but I feel very accomplished.

YAY for electrified mice! They do make the world a better place.

And you should! I tend to do more in three days than I do over the course of the week. I don't know why that is, but it's how it usually happens. :D

Hahaha... especially since I'm at work and using a desktop... I keep dragging my finger along my desk and realizing I'm not on my laptop. OOOPS.

We lost my sister's St. Bernard last week, so that threw last week off a lot, as you know. But yes, turned it all around on Friday with some well timed word wars.

I'm the other way. I keep slapping the desk at home looking for my work mouse.

OH no, poor baby! I'd been wondering how she was doing. :/ I'm glad you were able to pull it back together this week though.

Hahaha... I have a mouse for my laptop at home, but will use the touch pad if I have to (like when someone steals the batteries out of my mouse instead of asking if we have more).
