Where does the time go? That’s what I should have named my blog! Then when I haven’t posted in a while you could say “she lost it again” (time, not my mind because I lost that a long time ago). I guess I can take some comfort in the fact that I’m not the only one.
I hit a bit of a knitting/crochet slump. I finished all my wips and then just couldn’t get going again. When I did it was with large projects. Therefore, not much to say on the crafting front.
Recently (except for yesterday) the weather has been cooler and now I can’t work fast enough and it’s all I can do not to cast on 50 projects! At the same time I want to throw open all the windows and deep clean every nook and cranny of my house. I’ve also been working on cleaning out (I hope) the last of the summer weeds from my flower beds before winter sets in.
Then, of course, there are all those nice books waiting to be read. sigh
Still working on two blankets, but in the mean time here is a small project that I have managed to finish.
|From 2009 Projects|
I’ve had some Noro Silk Garden (color # 87) in my stash for quite some time so I finally decided to make a pair of Fetching fingerless mitts. I used size 6 needles and did an extra set of cables on the wrist and 3 extra ribbed rows on the thumbs. I did them two at a time on two cabled needles. Very quick.
I hope you all have a happy Friday and a safe and enjoyable weekend!
