No mojo

Hey all, sorry for the long delay. Things have been pretty crazy around here. Between my dad passing away and finding out I’m pregnant, things have just got a little crazy. Also I’m starting a new job Monday. Somehow, I seem to have just lost my knitting mojo; I literally have no drive to knit right now. I’m trying to get back into it though, because I have a lot of stuff in my queue I’m really excited to get made. On that note as well, I’m going to have to revise my Project 333 for March-May, because the whole skirt thing is not working out for me. I’m definitely more of a tights/tunic style person, so I’m going to try switching my wardrobe around a bit. I promise to try to start posting more regularly.

A Week in Pictures

aweekinpictures1) Avocado, hummus and matzoh. 2) This green goddess salad dressing. 3) I bought tulips (I am so excited for spring!) 4) Snow last week 5)Carnations and camera lenses (Don’t worry, I didn’t destroy a lens, that’s a lens mug.) 6)Homemade marshmallows with vegan hot chocolate! (I’m still looking for a good non-gelatin, vegan, no-corn syrup recipe, let me know if you find one) 7)I organized my yarn, and actually used a pin on Pinterest! 8)Some gouache painting. Very relaxing! 9)My entire yarn stash 10)Gin and Tonic cake a friend made for another friend at a birthday party. Delicious!

I haven’t done a lot of knitting this week, but here are some snapshots of what I have been up too.

 

Achievement Unlocked: Kiltie

I finished my Kiltie! I hadn’t read any of the notes on the patterns on Ravelry, but I should have, because my Kiltie turned out way to big. Way to big. So I learned how to steek and cut some side paneling out of each side of the skirt, and it fit much better. I added elastic to the waist to help keep it up, and perfection! These are my second favorite knee-high boots, after the brown ones. They’re not as waterproof as the brown ones, so they don’t work in the snow as well. The shawl is my Catkin, and yes, it’s the same color red as my skirt. Red and grey are definitely the themes of this outfit. I mostly added the shawl to make this outfit closer to 25% handmade, but I think it fits well with the over all color scheme. My Catkin is in worsted weight wool, and is enormous. The original called for sock weight, but it’s definitely warm!
