long time no chat….

Well, what have I been up to during the month just gone?

I finished my scrap yarn hoodie and got a zipper. I am very pleased with it. I had a few attempts at hand sewing in the zip but in the end i just tacked the front closed pinned in the zip and machine sewed it in.  I don’t have any pictures of it in its finished state because…

 I finished it waited two weeks for a zip, sewed the zip in, washed and dried it, put it in to go out in and then fell over in the muddy mess that is our front yard, you can guess just how pleased I was about that!

I knitted two pairs of booties (how impressed does the cat look).


I knitted a beanie for a friend, I realised what a quick knit this was, when i did all but 2 rows of it in my lunch hour at work.

I flashed my stash for ravelry.

I have been super tired and having some problems with my wrists, which has slowed my progress on everything.

But I am making a commitment to getting back to my blogging

It’s been a long time between posts. Everything is super busy and I haven’t been doing much in the way of knitting. I have just picked up the stitches for the edge of my scrap yarn hoodie, i lost enthusiasm for this project when i discovered how hard it was to get a two-way separating zipper. However I do need to finish it so i know how long a zip I need to order from somewhere at a ridiculous price…..

I need to churn out a pair of booties tonight for my mum to gift to someone, i have plenty but they seem to all be a bit pink or blue.
