So my number 1 fan, also known as BFF or Jguyver, reminded me that I was slacking on my blog posts. Given I had already been feeling the twinges of guilt from not posting for a while. However, lately I have been very me focused to protect my sanity 🙂 Too much to do makes for a crazy Monique.
Said selfishness, or should I say hedonism, has resulted in lots of TV watching, quite a few pounds gained, and surprisingly enough…knitting!
Yup people I have actually finished something. Well, it was half finished since last week when I ran out of yarn. I ordered it last Friday and it came today after being miss delivered to my neighbor so you will be seeing an FO soon!
While I waited, ate everything, and watched countless hours of TV, I also started a Clapotis! This is being knit double stranded with some Knitpicks Shadow that I snagged during our yarn swap last year.
I am normally not one to start something when I have a perfectly good project already on the needles, but I do believe that 2009 is going to be the year of the knitted accessories. I am in need of that instant gratification that only small projects can give and I just don’t have time for the lovely sweater patterns I have been eying. Besides I have other hobbies that have gone neglected as of late. Sewing for instance…
This weekend I plan on tracing and making a muslin for this beauty. BWOF 02-2009-112 I have some deep purple cotton sateen calling out to this pattern. There are so many great things in the February BWOF! These are the issues that make me love BWOF so much!!
