I have been having blogging withdrawal symptoms lately. Going from posting every day throughout October to about once a week in November has been a shock to the system; my head gets overloaded with things that would have been fun putting on my blog. The good news (to me anyway) is that there’s only a few weeks left of my assignment, and my life will get back to normal, or at least what counts as normal around here. I have been hoarding quilting and art supplies since August and cannot wait to get back to my studio.
Anyway; being too scared of getting sucked into my fabric stash, I don’t even touch it other than to put away whatever I add to it. I’m holding on to my knitting needles in the evenings though, and I have finished up quite a few knitting projects that will keep us all warm through the winter.
The alpaca Baby surprise jacket,
the cotton jacket,
the wool blankets,
The alpaca Tomten jacket. I keep forgetting taking pictures of him wearing it.
Wool belly warmers (pattern bought on Ravelry). When she asked if I could knit one for her, I was expecting to find gazillions of patterns and tutorials on the web, but I had to search high and low to find even one.
These are brilliant, and daughter is very happy with hers.
The wool leg warmers in super simple garter stitch
very stretchy and warm; my legs and ankles will thank me this winter.
I still have a few more projects on my list, like the alpaca baby hat that I had to frog as it came out too big. Oh well, as soon as my arms have gotten a much needed rest, I’ll be ready to have another go at it.
Have a wonderful week!
