Hi there, well back into the usual routines I guess, like we haven't just celebrated the beginning of a New Year. 2013 is already well on its' way, would be nice if it slowed down just a little.
After all the furious knitting before Christmas, I have tried to slow down and dedicate my time to one project at a time, and I have decided that before I can get any new wool, I need to finish the wool I stashed throughout last year with the various projects that were originally planned for.
So with that in mind, my Year's Queue is looking like this so far:
2. Birthday Gift for my Sister-in-law
3. Birthday Scarf for Kayla
4. Fingerless Gloves for Hubby
5. Pullover for Hubby
6. Cleo for me
7. Perfectly Pink
8. Finish my Tops, Tanks and Tees KAL project from last year :O
I am hoping I will stick with this list as I really need to empty some of my yarn storage before the moths do it for me ;)
But ooooohhhh, the temptation, no Ravelry browsing....killing me, KILLING me!
Back to the topic of WIPs.
I have been busy with Jassy's Jumper over the last week or so.
I am on the yoke right now and hope to have the pullover finished soon. I am experiencing a bit of Carpal Tunnel problems at the moment, but I am trying not to let that get in my way!
This Project is fun, and I am enjoying the Fair Isle and unlike with small garments, I am really concentrating on getting the tension perfect for the colours.
It is quite challenging, but enjoyable.
I am knitting this pullover in Drops Lima, another really nice wool to work with.
Reading: As you can see, I actually have a real book this week, it is really quite nice to hold a book again, I love my E-reader but there is something to be said about the feel and smell of a genuine book!
I am on my 3rd book from Jodi Picoult - Lone Wolf, and am really enjoying the book thus far. She really is a great writer, and I am hoping that the book will finish well. I will let you know as soon as I am done, which shouldn't be too long now as I am over halfway.
Don't forget - tomorrow Tutorial Thursdays will be running again, I hope you will come by and join in the fun, I would love to see what you all have been up to.
Do head over there for loads more grand handmade goodies!
P.S. Did you hear the exciting news?
Hubby and I have started a Homesteading Blog which will run through 2013 and log our efforts to becoming more self-sufficient. I would love it if you went to have a peek. All comments, and insights are welcome :)
