Wow! It has been about a month since my last blog post! The month of February has just flown by, it started with travels then it turned into me being really sick, the Olympics starting, school, and more travels. Happily I am done with traveling for awhile. Though I have been silent on here my knitting needles have been moving at a feverish pace, I have all but two WIP’s from last year on the needles (both lace weight which in my opinion explains why they are on the needles) and lots of new WIP’s and finished objects.
I’m hoping to try and make my posts a little more regular so here’s hoping.
Over the next few posts I will have some finished posts (6 FO’s to be exact) some of which may be combined in one post and I have a ton of WIP’s (more than I wish to disclose, and the number will actually be growing tonight). I have a lot of WIP’s because it seems like it never fails that the knitting groups I am most active with happen to have a KAL’s going on all at the same time. Right now I am actively participating in 4 short term, 1 year long, and I just finished up with the Olympic knitting.
Sadly with my Olympic knitting I only got one sweater done. I tried to get two full sweaters done start to finish, but I ran out of yarn due to stupidity on my part (I read the amount of yarn wrong and only got enough yarn for the small instead of the medium) so sadly I have one languishing Olympic knit. The yarn came in yesterday and to be honest with all the mishaps I have had with this sweater I really don’t want to look at it.
I have deemed the month of March to be the month of WIP’s, so starting in March I won’t allow myself to start anything new until all my WIP’s are complete (except for the stupid helix scarf that has been in hibernation, I plan to make myself work on it, but I don’t have I hopes about forcing myself to get it done. So on this Saturday March 1st, I will do my blog post showing all of my WIP’s that will be worked on.
So for your viewing pleasure and to show you what I have been up to (I have been bad and bought more yarn) here are some of the new pretties I have acquired recently.
Well I hope you enjoyed all the pictures of yarn. Have a great day!
