I’ve been trying very hard to force myself to knit so that I can enjoy knitting again. I’m filling my head with project ideas to make it easier and I’m in love again. I’ve finished two hats and I’m almost done with another. I got my yarn pile from loveknitting.com. I’m so ready!
First FO of the year!
Seams to weave in 😐
And current ongoing, yearlong project:
Another shot since I’m in love with this blanket:
My goal this year is also to do a lot of Charity knitting. Hopefully I’ll keep going this year! Last year, I kind of fell off the wagon… Until next time!
So I tried to keep a blog right? How did that work? It didn’t. So I’m going to try this again. Fridays will be my blogging day where I’ll update you guys on my knitting projects. Here’s a bit of what I’ve been up to lately…
I’ll do better photos next Friday. Does anyone know some good, free sock patterns for worsted weight yarn?
My knitting gets in the way if other things. Like I totally need to be focusing on schoolwork and practicals and I’ve been wasting time on this beautiful pattern. It’s called Abalone (look it up on ravelry!) I want to finish it so badly but I need to put it down and do more important things so badly too. Gah. Choices are so hard to make. Fashion and failing or…. Work?
I just got back from a trip from Bay Shore, Long Island, New York. It was a wonderful break from my school life and general life. I haven’t had a real, get away vacation in two years because of my surgery. On this one, we took two trips to the city, took a Bible tour, had an intriguing look at my rich, religious history. Then at the MET, we took an Integrity tour which was really encouraging. It showed the correlation between Greek culture, its influences on modern day culture, and how we can avoid some of the negative effects of this influence. Then we walked around the MET and took pictures all around.
I did quite a bit of knitting. I finished some great projects. I started a mistake rib scarf from a gorgeous yarn I got from an A. C. Moore on Long Island.
Love it! I can’t wait until its finished. I also finished two hats that I can add to my donation list.
I’m feeling really happy about this. I also just started my own Abalone cardigan. I don’t have a picture yet but I’ll post as that project looks less like a blob.
