You know , I hadn't actually realised just how much knitting I had done last year compared to sewing --- check out the lists on the right , just a bit of a difference !!
I think that towards the end of 2009 knitting kind of became an obsession of sorts and not always in a good way... don't get me wrong , I love knitting and I love it when someone asks me to make them something but it became a bit too much and I was just knitting bunny after bunny after bunny and as much as I adore the little blighters it came to a point where I decided that I really would like to make something else .... too much of a good thing I think the saying is. Also I wanted to take some time out to do other things , instead of enjoying playing with the boys , playing Farmville on Facebook ( I know I know ) or even reading blogs I would feel guilty for not knitting .
This year is going to be different , I'm going to relax a bit and make some different things - I have some awesome patterns which just haven't had a look in ........YET..
It's 7 days into the new year and I have already started a few things and finished a few too ... would you like to have a look?
A blanket for a baby due in 2 weeks -- this one might be a bit late as it's got quite a way to go yet.
And after everything I've just said , this one is going to be a bunny but it's a bunny with a difference and something I agreed to do for a lady who has already bought a couple of my other little critters.
This is going to be one of those patterns that I've wanted to knit but never got around too - I'll leave it as a surprise though !
And lastly, something I'm quite proud of as I kind of designed it .... it's nothing major so don't get too excited, but I do think they are rather cute?
Hopefully I'll get these few things finished by end of the month as I would really like to declare February as a sewing month ( more about that later ) but if they don't get finished by then I'm not going to get stressed by it ... no pressure .
So that's my crafty bits so far ..... I'll update as I'm going along , remember my post a day for January.
Oh , and the meal last night was also a success but boy the lady does like to use a lot of garlic , any tips for getting the smell off your hands would be greatly appreciated ( sugar didn't work Maree ) and on the menu for tonight is sweet and sticky pork noodle stir fry .... sounds nice don't you think -- I'll let you know tomorrow.
