I’ve been busy with uni-related stuff lately, so no knitting happened. But I did look at knitting and yarns… in fact, the number of favourites and items in my raverly queue has grown out of proportion!
A little overview on what I’ve been up to:
I’ve completed my Lazy Sunday market bag, included a strawberry ribbon and crocheted extra hanging leaves. I just have to saw the leaves in. I’ll include the details in a future post, once I have the FO pics. Meanwhile, if curious, you can have a sneaky look at my raverly project (no raverly log in should be needed).
…an ever growing list! Currently, I faved over 200 patterns and in total over 300 things including projects and designers. The queue is heading towards the 3-digit size. So much for being a new-be in the Ravelry world… I wonder what other users’ numbers are, not that it’s a competition of any sort. Perhaps a “more making, less looking” approach would be beneficial. At the top of my queue there are now mostly decorative items (strange of me), geeky patterns, and sheep-themed patterns (surprise!). I would post the pattern pictures, but not sure whether this would be causing any copyright issue.. anyone that knows about it?

I acquired more yarn (as if it was ever needed..).
- Loop the Loop by Stylecraft: this is one of big ♡. Nicola, a generous and extremely kind raveler, donated me six balls in the cream shade (and even sent a pattern!). I can’t tell you how nice it is of her! As a little thank-you, I am making a donation to a charity. Further, I got hold of Loop the Loop in black and ruby. I’m in woolly heaven…
- Other pure wool yarns: I like to have a bit of variety, so with current budget restraints I buy less renowned or sought after, one-off deals!
A few kind fellow bloggers have nominated my blog, and a thank-you post is due sometime soon! I value your nomination, but I’m sorry to say that I’m really bad at this, especially with question answering and asking… Please don’t be upset that I don’t follow up on the nominations!
I’ve been looking at weaving and sewing resources and tutorials, as they always held a fascination on me. But I just don’t have the time and energy to start right now…
I think that’s it for now! Have a great rest of the week
