Thinking of You…

Yes, I have been thinking of you, my blog reading community.  I have been thinking about how I really REALLY need to post soon.  I have so much to tell you and so little motivation to get it done.  So here are some highlights in the crafting world.

  • Bradshaw is done, the post is written, now all I need are the pictures to go with it!  The weather, my motivation, and the presence of photographers is not cooperating.


  • I went to a yarn swap on Sunday.  It was so great.  I  donated 37 balls to the swap and walked away with 6 balls of Knitpicks Shine Sport, which I have been wanting to use!! I was so proud of myself!! I could have easily walked away with more than I came with, but I was the queen of self control.
  • Still working on my McCall’s jacket.  All that work matching plaids was destroyed on the first stitch because the plaids on the two fronts were not matched properly.  I kept sewing and the rest of the plaids look ok so far.  I could blame the teacher since she was helping me, but instead I will chalk it up to a learning experience and move on.  Hopefully it doesn’t look too bad in the end.


  • Did some fabric shopping in Downtown L.A.  It is soooo overwhelming that while I was going to find woolen fabrics, I walked away with some pretty shirting instead.  Go figure!
  • Knitting has been a series of disappointments.  I have so many WIPs right now it is crazy!! All because I am not that in love with any of them.  Hopefully my newest shipment of sale yarn will bring back the mojo.  I bought some 50% off Calmer from Elann.  CALMER PEOPLE!!! I couldn’t pass it up.  I was poised by the computer at 9:00 am  and by 9:04 am it was completely sold out!  It looks like I got my allotment of Refresh and it should improve my Sour knitting mood.  Can’t wait until it gets here!

So that is it for now.  I promise some knitting, sewing and FO updates soon.  Sorry for the rushed post but that is pretty much all I could muster.

  1. Well then, Calmer, you say? Get on with your knitting! (I’m a fine one to talk, since snails make territory faster than I complete projects!)

  2. I’m really looking forward to your Bradshaw update. I’m a fairly new knitter and started knitting Bradshaw 4 weeks ago in Iro #60. Fronts and back done, nearly finished 1st sleeve. But it isn’t turning out how I imagined, I’ve been a bit disappointed by how simplistic the pattern is. So I’ve tried to make some modifications but very much with my fingers crossed hoping for the best. Hopefully you can give me some inspiration…
