List update

Wow - I felt like I had to dust off that banner above just now. I haven't put it on the top of one of my posts for what feels like a long long time.

That being said, after last weeks open forum apology to my knitting (which was supposed to be comedic with some truth mixed in..) I have managed to knit a little more this week than I have in recent past weeks.

Nothing much to report other than I am working like a mad woman trying to get through the grey and black wrap vest I have blogged about before. Enough is enough already! I has been on my needles for 13 months and I need my project bag space as well as the needles back etc. AND I really really really want to wear it to the local knitters frolic at the end of the month. Yet it stares at me in a bag while I write this post... taunting me so. As if to say - "ya right you'll get me finished in time... that is what you said LAST year". Well I am sure gonna try....

I have edited my list.... shocking. Slashed somethings... knowing full well I will ned to re locate them to next year. But I added an it. For my mother in law... for (dare I say it?) Christmas 2012. It is an intrigueing knit. Can hardly wait to fully sink my teeth into it... after the wrap vest ;)

A knitters apology

This is photoless post... I am sorry to my followers for that. If I had photos I would share them... but alas... I do not.

I want to make this an open apology to my projects... my beautiful, fibre=y knitting projects... they must think they have done something wrong. I have not looked at them in ages. So here it goes...

Dear knitting projects...

My heart aches for the time where my life is a little bit simpler and full of knitting goodness. This time of year definitely not allow for that.... just look at the last time I blogged!

SO dear, sweet projects... I am so very very very sorry. Sorry for neglecting you... sorry for not picking you up... sorry for letting adulthood/life get in the way of my love for you!

However... it is april... and april means good good things! I will be trying to get to my weekly knit night at least twice this month AND the DOWNTOWN KNIT COLLECTIVE has their annual Knitters Frolic! I am so very excited. A whole day of anything and everything to do with fibre!

So do not despair dear, sweet projects... I will return to you... I am hopeful for sooner rather than later...

Forever Yours,
