Stocking up

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was quiet and relaxed, sunny and warm.
It was so nice to be able to sit out on the balcony, absorbing the last few warm rays of sunshine and trying really hard to ignore the fact that A. refused to nap all weekend.
I’ve always had a predominantly monogamous relationship with my knitting projects, but lately I feel the need to keep starting new things. Today I forced myself to finish up some headbands, like the one I made here. They have been really popular with my friends, and I even made a set , as loot-bag gifts, for a toddler birthday party. I enjoy knitting little girly accessories like this, so I made a few for the shop. I have not updated my etsy shop in quite a while, so I felt it was time.
Life has been a little crazy around here, and I am having a hard time keeping focus. There are a lot of changes happening for our little family, and it’s sometimes overwhelming. It’s certainly affected my creativity. It’s odd, because I still knit, quite a bit, but it’s almost a furious knitting process, as if I am trying to capture that “feeling” of contentment it usually gives me, but it’s not quite working out. I know that time will resolve everything, but I am running out of patience.
I will be showing off some more knitting soon. I’ve been working on the Levenwick cardigan by Gudrun Johnston, and I am making some decent progress.  And I cannot wait for the new Luvinthemommyhood KAL to start. I’ve got a pattern all picked out, and yarn ordered.  Here’s to putting reality and its problems aside and focusing on some fun stuff, right?


  1. Well it looks like you're already prepped and ready for those long winter days :)

  2. Can you tell I am desperatly holding on to every little bit of sunshine and warmth?
