So while I was away from home (and The Creature 🙂 ) for a while, I’ve kinda been offline. And then these last few days I’ve been inundated by a desire to create, rather than ramble about what I’ve created. With the upside of getting So. Much. Craftiness done, it’s amazing, but with the downside of not enough sleep, not getting on with the things I should be getting on with and generally not doing anything else at all. Which has been rather strange, but I think that’s all done now, and it’s out my system… hopefully, at any rate. But enough of that. Want to see what I’ve been up to? Of course you do 🙂
Firstly, I knitted a pair of slippers while I was away (in a day, but like, I knit fast 🙂 )
Then when I came back, I finished off my mum’s cards. There are 10 in total, 3 each in 2 designs, and 4 in the third design. They’re really great fun to make(when all the pricking’s done, at any rate!), and I’m kinda sorry that they’re finished :(. But I’ve got another set to make my next door neighbour for Christmas(different design), so it’s not all doom and gloom. Does anyone else feel sad when they finish a (fairly long) crafting project? It’s never happened to me with anything knitted (maybe because I haven’t really knitted anything big…)
Here are the other two designs sewn on
Then I took a photo of all of them together, and I think that the set works really well. I really do love the attention to detail the form-a-lines team show in all their cards
And, on top of all that, I’ve carried on making socks(I may have ruined a pair on the washing line…), but they haven’t been photographed (I was far too eager to get them on my feet!), so when I finish the next pair I’ll try to photograph them before putting them on!
I’ve also finished my aunt’s birthday present:
So that’s where I’ve been the last few days. And when I haven’t been crafting, I’ve been organising all my crafting things, and finding lots of other things to do. Why is there never enough time in the day?
