Time away

Posted in Knitting, Travel at 6:01 am by myknittedempire

So I’m in Sydney to see the ‘police’ in concert, have had a nice time on planes, trains and ferries.

I will have traveled allot of distance by the time I’ve finished on Wednesday, as I am off to see my best friends baby on Monday.

Maybe I can get some booties knitted while I’m not being supervised….

That Clapotis is still not blocked…

the angry knitter

Posted in Knitting at 2:03 am by myknittedempire

The more I think about it the crosser I get. My knitting is not progressing due to my partners comment about me ignoring him. What is he 5 years old? I now feel like every time I pick up my needles I have to justify that I am being interactive, with both him and the knitting. I am fed up and couldn’t be bothered. The joy has gone out of it all.

Tick Tock

Posted in January, Knitting at 12:11 am by myknittedempire

Where does the time go?????

Last time I logged in was 10 days ago! what happened to those days????

I had two weekends of fairly productive knitting, I have started and finished a clapotis (only about 2 years after everyone else), I have started the first clue for secret of the stole ii.

It took me a long time to find the right yarn, I settled on the knitpicks gossamer in a colour way called red hat, to me it looks for like fresh berries. I am going to block it out tonight so pictures will be soon.

The clapotis was an easy knit, it didn’t take long, it is quite repetitive and I found myself constantly saying  “just more row…..” (often at about 1am). I found it interesting that the ‘ladders’ were so much work to unravel, but I suspect that was the yarn I used.

I have stated my 1st clue for secret of the stole ii, I needed to make the chart bigger, so it has momentarily paused.

My partner and I had a fight about how much attention my knitting was getting, the poor chicken felt neglected…  

New photos tomorrow, I promise.
