A quick update

I’m sorry for the silence on the blog lately, there has been SO much happening around the house that honestly I haven’t had a chance to even remember to write let along get anything made.

I did get this gorgeous little Tane knitted for Ali though, knitted up in Pumpkin luxury wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills. This is one of my favourite little short sleeved jumpers to make. Perfect for layering when the weather starts to cool

I have also cast on and had to frog a Western Hills Blanket a few times… The first time because the kids messed up my counting, the second because I accidentally pulled the needle out of the work and the third because I was using the DK instructions for my Worsted yarn ARGHHHH

Try number 4 will be attempted today if I can get a chance!

I’m using these gorgeous mini skeins from Candy Apple Lane to make it. I have 2 sets of 7 approximately 20g skeins here to start with and another 4 on order from her. If that’s not enough i’ll get more made 😛 They’re such delightfully bright and cheerful colours so it’ll be worth the investment. I’m going to make it in the cot blanket/throw size.

Ive made some progress on Mister Elias’s Charlie vest, though it’s slow going because I rarely think to knit it. And my sky blanket has been put onto the back burner for some time ( I don’t know why )

Does anyone else find they swing back and forth through projects like I do ?

Well…… I’ll TRY not to cast anything else on for a while…

Unless it’s a scarf……. hehe

This is such an EASY knit, so quick to make too. I love it’s basic raglan construction. Knits up a dream.

Give it a go !

 

 

I’m back

I am sorry I have been absent of late, Life became so busy so very fast ! It’s a whirlwind of new baby needs. Nappy changes, breastfeedings, baths and rocking to sleep. And in this busy house of many you can imagine how overwhelming it all can be. My depression kicked in strongly after baby Ali’s delivery and it was such a hard battle to get myself back to the almost happy place I was in beforehand but i’m finally back on track.

I did not pick up the knitting needles in a very long time. I have now, and I feel newly invigorated by it. I have bought some GORGEOUS new yarn from some wonderful ladies and cannot wait to get myself into some new projects.

I have also made myself determined to learn to crochet also. This is proving to be quite challenging for me but I will persist.

Here are some of my knits on my gorgeous new squishy. He was born over 4kgs so sadly many things do not fit him. I’m sure I will find a new home for them so all is not lost 🙂
