No more, Gentle Reader. I am going to get my act together. Why, you may ask? Well, I have 3 big deadlines.
The Big Girl, as she prefers to be called, with be turning 2 next Saturday. The teaset is progressing.
I have to finish one cup, one saucer, one creamer and one teapot with lid. Should be manageable barring any unforeseen knitting related injuries.
The second is my Sister's wedding in August. A long time ago, I thought it would be a great idea to knit her a wedding shawl. And one for myself, cause I deserve it. No problem. I have a year to prepare. I bought just the right laceweight, I found a pattern or two. But lace takes time, so I should really turn my mind to reading charts and slipping markers.
The third is October which marks the arrival of Kid #2. (I need a better nickname for this one. Leave your ideas in the comments.) I have some baby knitting planned for the coming months. Fortunately, baby knits are small and quick to knit. Our friends are having a baby a couple of weeks after us. (And no, we didn't plan it. The Dude and I like to keep our reproductive life private, thank you.) I'm sure I'll be able to make a little something for our baby's friend.
I did manage to finish these socks.
They were fairly quick and very interesting. I enjoyed the pattern and would likely make them again but perhaps in a different color. Green isn't really my thing but I'll wear them anyway. It's the closest thing I've got to Spring.
