I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit (and weave now, too!) but I seem to take more photos of my toddler than my crafts these days. She has that cute factor going for her. Because of this, I have started a tumblr called Tiny Taughts of our home lessons, crafts and projects. Please visit me there and I promise to come back here soon!

February WIPs

My works in progress are starting to build again. And I was such a good girl after Christmas! After wrapping up the last knit gift, I returned to projects that I hadn't touched in months. For example, the basketweave kitchen cloth ...

Basketweave kitchen cloth

It's gonna look gorgeous when I eventually finish it. It requires just enough attention so I can't work on it while I'm watching TV or chatting during knit groups. And those are exactly the two times I knit.

I have not yet returned to the summer blanket though. I have enough yarn now. But I'm worried about the "lacey" look. I'm gonna strangle one of my toes in this blanket! (If a toe could be strangled.) It is very, very soft. And a great yarn buster for all that Yarn Bee I have. I'm thinking about possibly attaching it to a blanket backing when it's all done. Just not sure how yet.

Other WIPs ...

A pair of fingerless mittens for my sister Tracy's birthday (Edit: Photo removed til she gets the gift :-P)

Cable fingerless mitts

^ My very own pair of fingerless mittens, made from handspun Betsy Ply yarn and some Lamb's Pride for the cuffs.

Double Moss scarf

^ The moss scarf, which I'm self-imposing a March deadline for. It is green, afterall.

Pleasing ponchette

^ And the ponchette that I started last night. It's a fun, easy knit. But if it doesn't look flattering on me, it will go in the Etsy box. I'm not sure I can pull off a poncho.

Speaking of Etsy, I'm planning to take a mini knit break next week. It's time to make some pillows for the shop launch! But the break won't be long because as of today, I also have two knit commissions to work on. Yay!!
