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!
