Have you ever been embarrassed by your inability to follow through and finish anything...ok
, everything! Have you ever hidden the fact that you just casted on your ump-tenth
project while so many neglected projects are staring you in the face?
I started something today that I don't want to tell even my closest friend (so instead I will post it on a publicly accessible blog--shows how much I think it is read!). Actually, the item is something that I have thought about knitting for a friend (different friend) for awhile. I finally got the book (SnB
Nation) and the yarn (Cascade Pastaza
) and decided that I needed yet another distraction. Did I mention that it was suppose to be a Christmas present?Ok
, on a more productive note...finished items!!!
This is my nephew, E
, with his Very HungryCaterpillar
. Cute, huh? Of course, he is more interested in the gift bag. Typical man.
And this is my niece, T, with her Huggable
Hedgehog and book. Notice how the stuffed hedgehog has a woolly
red hat just like the one in the book.
I know these are Christmas pictures and I know that it is the day after Valentine's Day. I know. But I just realized that for nearly all the UFOs I have, I have probably as many FOs
. Nearly. I hope to acknowledge that in the next few posts. But don't hold your breath cuz
we all know I am notorious for disappearing for months on end.
OH! I joined Bluemoon Fiber's Socks that Rock Club
!!! I am so excited! The first kit arrives around the 1st week in March. In the meantime, I have also joined http://samkal3.blogspot.com/index.html
and am nearly done with my first pair!
OH!!!! AND I finished my Jaywalkers!
yarn: Brown Sheep Wildfoote
colorway: Rock n Roll
needle: Addi Natura
size 2 (I think! 1 or 2)
I'm very proud and wear them every occasion I get!
OK, enough for now. I have to admit that maybe my true motivation for sitting down and starting this blog thing up again was avoidance of house cleaning.
I have issues....
