Progressing Quietly

We've been fairly busy in the household this past week, I've been working but with less time free, I'm valuing my free time even more. I have been trying to focus on one project at a time, and that project has been these mitts.


The yarn is just gorgeous, Wisdom Poem's Sock. The colour is Cruise, I believe.

Look at that!

Stocking stitch all the way, but the colour changes make it fun.

And here's what Taryn's been up to, this gorgeous blanket!


I offered to weave the ends in, and, uh, I still need to do that.

  I should probably head off to lunch with the others, and then work.

No excuse for it really

I'm afraid I have both a lack of photos for this post, and a quite astonishing case of startitis. I have well and truly lost count of the number of projects that I have started in the last few days, most of which have been ripped back of the needles in a matter of hours.

I have therefore, forcibly simplified things. There are a couple of exceptions to my attack, the merino-silk Hitchiker for instance, which is sitting and waiting quietly. Other than that, though, I have narrowed things down to two working projects, two slots if you will, and I can only start something new when I've finished something.

Right now I have a Jaywalker sock being knitted out of Zwerger Garn Opal Graffiti, that will probably take some time, and when my hands get sore, and I get sick of the fine gauge, I can switch to the simple eyelet cowl I'm making out of Misti Alpaca's Best of Nature for the fiancĂ©e  It's unbelievably soft, simple and peaceful to knit.

I'll try to get photos tomorrow, and since we're off to buy some yarn I'll get photos of that too.

My, what a while it's been. Lots have things have happened since I last made a post, and lots of things haven't.

I have my own place now, and the whirlwind of the past few months has begun to subside, leaving the space to build up peace and pretties around me. Yes, the house is a mess, the dishes are piling up and the rain's meant no washing's gotten dry in a week, and yet;

Socks are being knitted

Yarn is being dyed

And kitties are being loved (this is my baby girl Stella)
