Crafting on - sort of

I was typing something about being back, not sure where to go with it etc. but then I realized I'm a bit of a broken record about this. It's not the first time this happened and I don't think it will be the last time either. Maybe it's time for me to just accept that I sometimes don't feel like blogging for a while, without making excuses? Yes, I think it is. So I'll skip explanations and just pick up where I left off.

Joining Nicole's Crafting On today. Here's what I'm working on:

:: a granny stripe blanket. But I already know it won't be just stripes, since I simply don't have enough of that yarn. This was a bag of scraps (mostly angora) that I found at the thrift shop. I have some lilac mohair that I plan to add, hoping it will be enough to make this at least a baby blanket.


:: a summer sweater. Knitting has been hard for me lately (arthritis), but right now it seems to be less painful. I hope to keep it that way. I have so many plans...

:: during my blogging hiatus there wasn't much crafting (yes, there is a connection- no crafting, no blogging, or maybe 'not feeling like crafting' is the same thing as 'not feeling like blogging'. I don't know, but I always come back to both). A few weeks ago though, I itched to just make something, so I made some granny squares for KAS.


It's good to be back ;-)

  1. I have, in the past, had the same difficulty staying with the blogging, and to a lesser degree, with the crafting. I have a few different crafts that I like to do (knitting, crocheting, stitching and sometimes sewing) and I usually have one or two of those that calls to me and then that changes. I also have problems with arthritis as times, so it helps to switch off on what I'm working on. That blanket is super cute!! You really found a treasure at the thrift shop:)

    1. Oh yes, switching projects does help. I tend to focus on one project at once, but I try to remember to work on several things at a time.

  2. Oh the blanket looks gorgeous, I have arthritis too, it does help swapping from one craft to another, or from complicated knitting to simple knitting but sometimes does mean I end up with too many projects on the go at once!

    1. Ha! I tend to do that too sometimes. Startitis is fun, but chaotic ;-)
