Yes, it certainly has been a while since I last joined in with Tuesday’s Tallies. What can I say? I’ve been absent from Blogland, not posting or even commenting much. Sometimes life gets in the way! Exams, holidays, family – everything else has to take a back seat when priorities shift. But that’s not a bad thing either, and I’m now able to come back, fresh and raring to go.
So, what have I been up to in the meantime, in a crafting way, of course. Well, I’m totally hooked on socks just now. I joined a Ravelry group, Sock Knitters Anonymous, which has all sorts of sock related knitting challenges – mystery sock kals, designer knits, colour themes, etc. I’ve tried colour work, cables, 2 at a time – lots of new techniques and ideas. There’s also another group, 52 and 26 pair plunge, which aims to knit either 52 or 26 pairs of socks in a year so I signed up for that too. It may cure me of my current fad! Or not…! I’ll try to show you some photos soon.
With crochet, I still have a couple of WIPS on the go, surprise, surprise! My Square Swap blanket is now coming together. I’ve started to border each square, and join them as I go, in the order in which they arrived. Unfortunately I’m still waiting for a few, but I haven’t given up hope yet. My plan now is to border and join one square each day for my new Tuesday’s Tallies project.
And I’m really looking forward to catching up with everyone else over at Gingerbread Girl’s blog.
Happy Tuesday xx
