It seems like ages since I blogged because I’ve been swamped under a myriad of things that needed to get done, I’m still nowhere close to done, but I’ve missed blogging and that’s why I’m here:)
There was a fun swap on Ravelry that I was a part of. It was my first official swap and the best part was getting to make a new crafting friend. My swap partner was the talented and lovely Soulcrochet. Check out the jewelry she’s handcrafted on her Rav projects page. I can’t reveal what I knitted for her yet and so that post is for another time. My package is ready to be mailed first thing tomorrow and I’m excited to see what she thinks about it.
Our family took a mini vacation over the Eid holidays which was much needed – surf, sand, great food, yummy cocktails and plenty-o-sun not to mention the amazing view we had of the Arabian Sea from our equally amazing apartment right on the beach, we couldn’t ask for more!! But what I will cherish the most was the sweet moments we shared together as a family enjoying laughs and walks on the beach and general monkeying around.
In knitting news, I can’t seem to stop with these cute little knit bits and there’s more cute stuff that’s on Julie’s website that I will definitely make soon. I’ve felt the need to do a bit of crafting as each day tumbles into the next and I never realized before how happy these crafting moments make me feel. These knit bits are the perfect projects for limited knitting time.
As you can see, I sort of messed up on the red and white stocking with the color change. Um…I forgot to work the color change after the heel shaping. But that’s ok, it still turned out cute. The yarn I used for these were bits of acrylic in my stash and I love that these are knit flat and then seamed. No messing around with 4 dpns, 2 circs, magic loop, nothing! Just plain, fun knitting, even though Christmas is still a couple months away.
