Digging through old boxes at my parents’ house, I found something I had forgotten all about: my first piece of knitting. It’s misshapen, awkward, and filled with holes, but it’s all mine. It’s a reminder of how far I’ve come and an inspiration of how far I have yet to go.
I realize I’m a little late, but I’m still recovering from the holidays. No, I don’t mean wild parties. I’m recovering from holiday knitting.
I hate to freak anyone out, but there are now only 23 days until Christmas. I’m a little freaked out, but despite having a growing Christmas list, last week I decided to cast on a new project, something just for me. Maybe I’ll count this as my Christmas present to me?
Are you excited? I’m super excited. Finally, in Central Texas, I was able to wear some of the things I knit, with our weather finally dipping into the 30s. The wonderful weather didn’t last long, but I’m hoping it comes back soon!
With my knitting group’s Christmas party quickly approaching, I’ve had ornaments on the brain. Ravelry is an excellent resource for finding ornament patterns, which didn’t help much. However, when I spotted these little guys, I knew my search was over.
I’m posting a little later than usual in the day today. I have a reason. Whether it’s a good one or not, I can’t say. What’s the reason? I was knitting.
This post shouldn’t be called “Lunch Break WIP.” This should be “Every spare moment I get WIP” because I can’t seem to put this project down, and I’m not typically a monogamous knitter. I haven’t even looked around at other patterns on Ravelry, which is usually a daily ritual (several times a day to be exact).
I was not a very happy knitter this weekend. One of my projects completely misbehaved, and then the cats helped it misbehave more. Needless to say, that project was tossed up onto the time-out shelf, and I haven’t gone near it since.
Ok, since my confession of becoming newly addicted to podcasts, I keep finding more and more great ones to listen to and/or watch! That’s good because I keep waking up earlier and earlier (4 am now thanks to the stupid time change), and I now have tons of time in the mornings to relax, knit, and enjoy a great podcast.
