Our 2020 challenges are:
- The Color Challenge
- Gift Giving
- Learn Something New
- Read a Book
I’m not sure about the best way to do our sharing but let’s try it this way this month and if someone has better ideas, send them to me and we can try a different way next month.
If you want to leave your info in a comment, or if you have a blog and want to leave a link in the link box, that would be great. If you prefer to just say “I did the gift giving challenge but would rather keep it to myself” or “I learned something new and would rather keep it to myself”, that’s fine and if you want to say nothing, that’s fine too! I’m so agreeable!
So, here are my answers:
For the color challenge, I worked really hard on the red Persistence is Key sweater. It isn’t finished but I will go back to working on it once I finish the mittens for ESK’s Flash Knit Along.
For the gift giving challenge, I made a meal for Chad’s new neighbors when they were moving in.
For the learn something new challenge, I’m working on learning American Sign Language. I will probably never be adept or even know enough to help anyone but Addie and I started working on it when I was there, and then Nicole was really excited about it because she had learned quite a bit in middle school so she and Addie have been working on it a bit. I will work on other things too, like learning to do some different kinds of knitting, but I’ll work the American Sign Language all through the year.
I want to thank one of my blog readers who suggested American Sign Language. I would never have thought of that and I think it’s good for all of us to know a little of it.
For my read a book challenge, most of the books were audio books but a couple of them were Kindle books that I read. They’re on the sidebar also.
- Tidewater by Colleen Coble

Obviously, I found and loved a new to me author, Colleen Coble.
I’ll do a blog post in the morning about the February challenges.
