As you might have figured, not too long after the last blog post, more then 3 months ago, my family was increased with a darling, absolutely lovely daughter. And of course that is when my leisure life had to be put on hold for a while. Hardly surprising, but babies really do take all the time you give them, especially the first 3 months. What? You want a picture? Alright. This was a day after she was born.
She really is a wonderful baby, sleeps a lot, doesn’t cry much, and grows very, very well. At this point she has found her thumb, and finally gives me a little more time for…. Me. So, I have a chance to catch up with all my crafting friends, and even get a little knitting done here and there.
What have I been working on? Oh this and that… Wait, you actually want to know? Hmm, let’s see. One of my favorite things to work on are shawls. And I have about 3 active on my needles at this point. Two came from one of my favorite designers, Mmario. The first one, that is currently furthest, is called Hippo Gnu Deer. I am currently a little further then this picture, but I don’t believe I have shown you this yet, and the current one would not be all that much more interesting.
I am also working on Caroling, Caroling, the latest Mmystery Kal that was organized by Mmario. The Kal was of course finished a couple of months ago, but I am no where near finished on it yet:
And the third one is a brand new start:
Yep, you have seen that right, it is the Poem sock yarn of the socks that I took out because my gauge had changed QUITE significantly over time. I think it is actually much happier as a shawl. I will probably have an update on that next time. I also have some other things on my needles, as well as a couple of things that came off the needles, and I promise, I will tell you about all in due time.
