I have knitted and sewn many stitches this month just not on the one project I really should be focussing on. The picture of the quilt is the same as earlier this month and not a stitch has been sewn in the meantime. I am lucky that Cameron is patient. Quilting is a new project for me and I have reached a stage where I need some time and headspace to sit and work out the next bit. I don't always get much of either of these, so it is up to me to make sure I do so that I can get started, as I know that once that happens, I will be left wondering why I haven't made a start before!
The socks are slowly growing, I had progressed a fair way down the foot before I realised that I had made a mistake many rows back so I ripped all the stitches out, I am almost back to where I was before. Frustrating but I least I noticed then and not even further on!
My cardigan is off the needles. It needs blocking and then the ends, there are many, need weaving in. I have bought buttons, so I am nearly there. I am terrible for ignoring projects at this point and casting something else on but I have resisting, so far.............
.........difficult when this pile is looking at me longing. My latest purchases. I bought this yarn online, something I rarely do. I visited my local yarn shops and couldn't find the colours I wanted. I risked it online, you can never quite tell if the colours are right can you, and I do like to give the yarn a squish too. I lucked out with this yarn, it is exactly what I wanted. I am so looking forward to casting these on. Two new projects!
I made a birthday present for my friend, I will enlighten you in another post and four of these for the children to store stuff in.
So February, you are the month I will get going on that quilt, a cardigan will get finished and hopefully shared, and just maybe something new on my needles. I am a step down the road of making some clothes for myself, buying a pattern, next I need some time in the fabric shop, alone. Maybe that might happen too?
