Wednesday Posts



I thought that after 2012, time would start to slow down a little bit - apparently not!
Oh well, as long as I have something to show for my time, I am happy enough....just aging pretty fast :(

I am quite surprised at my monogamous relationship to my knitting this year.
My 2013 queue of projects to be done are all stash busters and so far I haven't wavered from the list at all. (More about that on Friday)

I am still busy with my scarf pattern from last week and am hoping to have it finished by Friday to show you all.
It is growing nicely but I am having the same problem I had with the first one in that it is getting so extremely LONG - The rows are starting to go on FOREVER. I guess I shouldn't complain, it is such an easy pattern that knitting and watching TV go hand in hand :)


My neck felt back to normal over the weekend and I managed to finish the cap and the FREE pattern I have been promising you all.


If you would like to have a go at this pattern you can find it HERE

The final choices for our Online Book-Club: Book 2 are out for the vote and I would love it if you would cast your vote, (on the sidebar below Online Book-Club button) even if you don't want to take part. 
Even better is if you decide to join us - that would be awesome!
It will be interesting to see which one of the choices wins.
These are the books we are voting on:


My Sisters' Keeper - Jodi Picoult
Marcelo in the Real World - Fransisco X Stork
The Dovekeepers - Alice Hoffman
Friendship Bread - Darien Gee
The Girl from Snowy River - Jackie French
The Dressmaker of Khair Khana - Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

I hope to see you tomorrow for Tutorial Thursday. I will be showing you a last Valentines' Day Craft for this year, and will be using these goodies:


Come by and see what it will be and link up your creative goodies, I would love to see them.

Hasta manana wonderful people :)

I will be linking up with Tami and Ginny today.

  2. Well done with the stash busting! Scarf yarn looks interesting, I know what you mean about long rows, my ripple has 219 stitches and sometimes I feel like I'll never get to the end of a row!

    1. Hi Emma,

      Wow, 219 stitches! I dare not count mine. The Scarf yarn is from Drops, is rally nice to knit with, but then I am kinda biased when it comes to Drops, I love their yarns!
      Thanks for visiting.

  3. I worked on stash busting last year, but towards the end of the year I was itching for new yarn. I am still waiting on buying some new stuff, but I can feel a binge buying session coming on quickly :-)

    1. Hi Heather,
      I think it has helped that my plate is overflowing with other things I am busy with right now, so I don't really have the time to consider what I am doing, I just get on with it when I have a moment. I also rarely have time to visit Ravelry right now (which definitely helps!)
      Thanks for your visit.

  7. Oh, it would take me ever so long (perhaps a lifetime) to work my way through my yarn stash. :) I've decided this year is going to be the year I finish writing all my patterns and finish all the projects I've laid aside! I picked up the first this week, a lacy shawl, and have made good progress. Happy knitting!
