I finished my first knitting craft project (hurrah!) I gave it to Nanny early because she needed a hat and I needed to see if it would fit her. It did and she loves it…mostly loves it just because I made it, but I think the colors are really fun and look great with her black coat.
My goal of another hat and infinity scarf are slightly behind schedule. My main knitting time has been lunch hour at work and I have forgotten it at home Mon-Wed this week. I know what I am doing now so I could technically work on it at home, however I know that Brooklyn will be very interested in wool. I was trying to scrapbook last night and she was very contentedly sitting with Garret until I started doing something and she wanted to “help” I now have teeth marks in my Breaking Dawn ticket stub I was trying to glue down. Perhaps she is a puppy crafter like her mumma?
My plan is to try to get on top of the knitting in the next few weeks and see how it goes. I dont want to rush it because nothing is more frustrating than realizing you have messed up a row of knitting and you have to undo a bunch…I am speaking from experience as I had to do that with both the hat and the scarf. In the meantime craft wise I have a December daily scrapbook project I am working on and I am DYING to get my quilt started. One thing at a time right? My usual modus operandi is to have 15 different crafts on the go at one time and then inevitably none of them get finished in a timely manner. My Mum and I just finished a baby quilt for one of our God daughters that took a good 6 months from when she was born. So tack on the 9 months Erin was pregnant and I knew a baby was coming….that’s a lot of lead time!
