Despite all my efforts to try to blog more, I find myself getting further behind with it. Where is the time going, it is flying by so quick. Too much to do and so little getting done.
I try to plan my knitting, it sometimes goes to plan, but as you all know, that can go out the window in a blink of an eye. Always something comes up, a new pattern, new yarn, someone to knit for, and so it goes.
Still trying to declutter the home, getting a bit further with that now. I have a deadline of September ready for Spring. Not sure I will make that deadline, but I will keep on trying with a bit at a time.
Knitting has also been busy, I am having so much fun knitting for the twins, there parents appreciate my knitting for them. I also have a new baby great niece, so knitting for her has been fun too.
The weather is getting colder now, even though it looks nice and sunny outside, it is getting colder each day as we make our way through the middle of winter.
On my needles at the moment is a cardigan for a 4 year old "eyelet cardigan" it is in the Patons Pattern Book 1105 - Mod Knits in Big Baby. I won the book and 2 balls of Big Baby 4ply acrylic on the Australian Country Spinners facebook page. I don't usually knit garments in acrylic, I must say this is very nice and soft to knit with. I will knit another one for Bailee for next winter in pure wool.
What else is on the needles, I have a few projects going at once, not my usual thing, but have a couple of birthday's to knit for. I have the Emerald City Beanie in Bendigo Luxury 8ply for my nieces finance's birthday and some Bendigo Alpaca fingerless mittens for my nieces birthday.
I am going to learn to spin, it has been something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I will be having a lesson on Monday, I am a bit nervous as on my last attempt some time ago, I seem to hold onto the fleece too tight and my hands get a bit sweaty. I need to just relax and go with the flow of what I am being taught.
