These days I just never seem to get time to blog, which is rather sad :(
I am hoping that real life will calm down in the near future enough for me to have a little space each week to dedicate some time to blogging and chatting with you all, as I am really missing it!
We are still in full swing with our renovation and it is taking all of my free time, and when I have a moment I am trying to get as much crafting done as possible - it helps to bring me back to my center and as such is something I am clambering to right now - isn't it nice to have something so relaxing and fun to do that actually helps one stay sane :D
I have many projects on the go right now, and am working on those that tickle my fancy as I just don't have enough time to work on all of them, even though I would love to.
So let me fill you in with the projects I have been busy with over this last week:
Knitting: These are my May Socks
I am about 3 cm before I start on my toe caps which is great!
Before the spring gets into full swing I would like to complete our cat bed, but I can't seem to move onto that project until at least my socks for the month are off the needles - I am so weird that way!
I decided on a pattern free foot, basically because of time constraints.
When I thought about it, I thought that I would always wear these with closed shoes, so I wouldn't see the patterning anyway.
I know it is a bit lazy, but the patterning does take quite a bit of time to create, and as much as I love the patterning on the leg, I quite like the pattern-free bit of the sock just as much :)
I am hoping to be close to finishing these babies off this week if possible.
Crochet: This is the beginnings of my Meadow Blanket.
I am rather late to the party as I wasn't too sure if I wanted to crochet-along, but eventually decided that it would be a nice change and hooked my first square.
I am really enjoying this project and hope to catch up over time.
Above you can see my clue 1 and 2.
I am crocheting this project in the suggested yarn.
Are you taking part in this project?
Stitching: I am hooked!
Sue from the Legacy Knitz Podcast started a stitching revolution and I really wanted to give it a go as it looked like soo much fun :)
So I bought myself this cute Gorjuss kit and got started almost instantly.
To be quite honest, I would love to stitch all day if I could and my eyes would hold up!
Yes, I suddenly realized how my eyes are getting old!
At first I couldn't find the holes and at some points I was seeing double :O
But as the day progressed it got a little easier to see what I was doing and I fell totally in love with the craft!
I am already considering future projects, and can see myself becoming as addicted to stitching as I am to all of my other yarny crafts.
Do you stitch?
If so what are you busy with?
Reading Wise: I have finally started to get some reading done and am busy reading a new title - The Girl in the Ice
Well, I must be off again.
Do come back on Friday and share your FOs for the week with me, I would really love to see what you have been up to :)
I will be sharing this post with all of my weekly creative friends, so do pop over there for some great inspiration.
