Catch Up and Scrappy Vintage Blanket

Sorry for my lack of posts lately.  There has been a lot going on behind the scenes here, you'll just have to trust me on that!

Lately I've felt a bit like I have been spinning my wheels, trying to get things done, without much success.  I had a day where I actually felt like sewing a few weeks ago, and then the bobbin case in my machine jammed and I had to quit.  Alain was away so I had to wait for him to fix it.  That has been done, but I have yet to return to my machine.

I've been working on a few projects that have been getting me down.  Between a project I was loathing (and then loved when I finally got down to it) and re-knitting several hats due to size issues, I have spent a lot of time knitting things I haven't really wanted to be knitting.  I often knit for friends, but I think that is going to stop, very soon.  There is so much I want to do for me these days.  I've decided it's okay to be a little selfish.

I'm looking forward to Monday.  Value Village is having another 50% off sale, so I can get some more sweaters to felt and make into stuff.  I'm planning on hitting two stores this time around!

For now, I'm going to leave you with a project that I haven't even posted on Ravelry yet (although I'm off to do that now!).  This one has been slow going, mostly because I don't have much time to work on it, and it is a big project.

I use a lot of Vintage Wool for the baby stuff I knit.  I love it and often end up with little bits of it.  I spent a long time saving these little bits, and have been working on a scrap blanket for a little while now.  There are so many ends to weave in it's scary, but I like how it is turning out.  It is certainly very colourful!

  1. I know what you mean about knitting selfishly. I just got to that point in the last few months. No Christmas knitting here! When I do have time/energy to knit I'm working on MY Sage Remedy. No shame in taking care of yourself. Cool project!
