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

Well, it wouldn’t have been anyway, given all the networking that got done, but it’s still nice to think that I’ve gotten some crafting done, at least!

My train socks, of course, got some loving. I’ve finished the first heel now 🙂


There was also some time I had to myself in the morning, before the conference started. So naturally, I put that time to good use on a slightly more complicated project, this cardigan. I started the right sleeve, mostly because sleeves are more transportable, and also because my long cable is currently in use with my insane blanket (still no photo of that- I will get one for next week, promise!)

cardiganThis pattern is really nice (albeit I did find a couple of issues, but they’ve been sorted now) and I’m really looking forward to finishing this! I have, however, decided that I really need to get onto my dads mittens… I know they aren’t really needed till Autumn, but I’d quite like them to y’know, be done by then! So I’ve decided that I need to finish one mitten before I finish this sleeve… wish me luck here, I think I’m going to need it!

And of course, it’s about the right time to start thinking about Christmas projects! I have most sorted, but I need to find several small bird charts for my aunt (she’s getting a set of coasters). So if anyone knows where I can get them free/cheap, that would be great 🙂
