Happy Valentine’s Day! Or, in my family, happy birthday, dad!
I’m obsessed with Knit Picks, if you haven’t guessed that yet. One of my favorite things about their podcast is listening to Kelley Petkun talk about her many projects. She has one for every single kind of knitting mood/situation you can imagine. I don’t think I can juggle as many as her, but I’ve been adding to my WIP pile again.
Before I get too far going, I just want to say congratulations to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law on the safe arrival of their new beautiful baby girl! She arrived this morning and is just gorgeous and healthy and wonderful. Unfortunately, we live an ocean away, so there will be no cuddles for us, but we can still enjoy the pictures!
I quit on crochet! There are so many talented crocheters out there, and I am simply not one of them. Needless to say, the crochet version of the minion has been abandoned in favor of a knit one.
The joke in my family every time my husband or I bring up that I’m knitting him a sweater is that he’ll get it in a few years, if ever. I’m a fairly slow knitter, especially with big projects, and I’m very often distracted by fun small projects in between. Still, progress is progress, no matter how slow.
I’m starting the new year off with a bang! I’m conquering two knitting resolutions at once. Not only am I finally knitting my husband’s sweater, but I am also cabling. This should be quite the adventure.
Well, the world is supposedly going to end tomorrow. I’m in the non-believer set, particularly as if it does end, I’ve been rushing to finish these stockings for no reason! Not to mention, would the world really end before the Doctor Who Christmas Special?
Although I thought I wouldn’t, I cast on a second stocking on Friday night. I didn’t get very far until Saturday, when husband and I decided to have a day in. Then, before I knew it, I was done with the leg portion!
Yay! I’ve cast-on another hat! No stockings, despite needing so many of those. I’ll learn my lesson by the time Christmas is over. Perhaps. Then again, procrastination was always my strong suit.
