I want to say thank you so very much to the DMC blog again, you can imagine how excited I was when they contacted me and asked if I would be part of a series of posts on studios they were planning. Thank you for stopping by for a peek at my little room.
I’ve not had much time for personal crafts in lately. It’s great that what I do for ‘work’ is like doing personal crafts so I can’t really complain. I’ve been spending my free moments doing a little knitting and some reading. I’m not a very good knitter at all and it takes me quite a while to make progress. I’m told that I mutter and talk to myself when I knit, but I keep knitting all the same. I’m hoping that I will build up a bit of a knitting callous on my index finger, it gets a little sore and quite red when I knit – I’m probably doing something wrong.
I’ve almost finished one book, London the Autobiography (very good) and think perhaps Knitting for Dummies should be my next.
My projects are both free patterns over at Lion Yarns: Comfort Shawl and Twin Lakes Blankie please don’t look at my massacre of the seed stitch border, I don’t know how to unpick mistakes but I’ve mastered the seed stitch now.
It’s been so crazy around here that two special anniversaries have passed and I’ve not had time to celebrate them. Check back here on Friday for details – yes there will be prizes, don’t worry they won’t be knitted ones.
