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.

I have joined both the secret of the stole 2 and the 2088 stash-along.

Problems with this are: I haven’t decided what my stash goals for 2008 are or even might be. and I don’t have the yarn for the SOTS2 (its in the post somewhere….)

Sigh, why do i over complicate my life?

I really enjoy taking pictures, however, I don’t really have a flair for it, but that doesn’t stop me liking it!! Here are a few pictures I took the other day, I was raining and the wetness made everything look so lush.
