DIY December, Part II

So after having broken my ankle, I had to find SOMETHING to do since working out was totally off the table.

So DSD (Darling Step Daughter) and I hit the Pinterest baby afghan posts to find a pattern we wanted to do for the baby. We found several, and I asked the hubs to pull my yarn stash out of the attic (which he did) and I started creating.

To get back into the swing of things I made this infinity scarf:

Infinity scarf.

I wore it to work and one of the girls fell in love with it, so I was going to make her one, but the yarn I used for the black alternate panels couldn’t be found so I got a variegated skein or three and made myself another to match my department scrub colors:

My replacement scarf...

I gave Angela the original scarf. During this time, I found out some dear friends wanted scarves as well, so I proceeded to complete a couple sets while binge-watching the final few seasons of Dexter. (Can I just say the final season mad me really sad?) This is what I came up with:

Meanwhile, in the kitchen….

This girl was pulling together homemade body butters, sugar scrubs and bath salts for her friends and loved ones:

I can’t wait to get to the post office with these bad boys!


The paint in the weight room dried and the chair rail finally went up and this is where we are, thus far, with the home-gym room:

Stay tuned for more homemade goodies from the Type-A Workaholic’s corner of the world.

    This makes me feel a little bit inadequate… ha ha! I am not a homemade crafter and your pieces are beautiful, Julie! I draw and paint, but don’t do so much over the holidays… just trying to stay even keel, since I still have busy days at work. Take care, Julie!

    Good job!! They’re beautiful!! ❤️

  3. You put me to shame. When I broke my foot, I spent the week at home playing videogames on the computer.

    You are quite the renaissance woman! If I broke my ankles, there wouldn’t be any knit scarves, only empty bags of cheese curls on the floor. 😀
