It's a bit hard getting back to normal after the holidays. There's always so much to put away and clean up, food to eat, weight to lose, miles to run. Finding time to knit always seems to be a problem. I love knitting, I love the way the fabric comes together while twisitng yarn on these poitny sticks. This weekend I finally found some time for it...
An almost FO! It just needs felting... Kristina by Black Sheep Bags in Patons Wool and Noro
I've also found time to start River from Rowan 37 in Kid Silk Haze Majestic
and from the bottom of the UFO basket, I've picked up Interlocking Balloons from Scarf Style in Araucania Nature Wool
Thanks to everyone for the Birthday wishes, ecards, cards, and presents. Y'all are wonderful, thanks for brightening up my birthday! Have a great week and Happy Knitting!
This is my 100th post. Yay! I've had this blog for about a year and a half, and I'm surprised that I've kept it for so long. The Blog lacks many things. Knitting content for one. I'm not a particularly fast knitter, and I'm a (self diagnosed) ADD knitter. Therefore it is often takes a while before completed knitted objects appear on this blog. Forgive me and thank you for stopping by.
I've made one New Year's resolution this year. One knitted object per month. Wish me luck.
