Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Ok, so clearly my knitting and cross stitch didn’t listen to me. I’ve been crafting up a storm, in between teaching and my maths! First off, I finished the second green sock, so I have another pair to wear

Digital StillCameraA friend of mine commented that I don’t have many pairs of matching socks, so I decided to make the next pair completely matchy-matchy. Therefore, I’m doing them two-at-a-time 🙂 They should be nice when they’re finished, but they’re just started now, and buried somewhere, so I don’t have a photo to show you.

I also wanted to do some cross stitch, but again, everything was wanting me to finish them (does anyone else get this? When I cross stitch, I *have* to be doing it because I like cross stitching, rather than I want the thing finished? I think it’s because I cross stitch very slowly (in my mind, I don’t know how fast I am in relation to anyone else!)) so I pulled out my butterfly from enchanted-needle, and worked on that.

Digital StillCameraNow I have the words, hearts and frame bit left, but I wasn’t in the mood to finish that after all of the changing threads for the main section, so I went back to OUAT. I don’t have a picture of that, but I’ve nearly finished April’s block- hopefully I’ll finish it this weekend, in time for May’s to come out!
