I've not been a prolific poster lately. Honestly, the whole bike jersey thing. The advent of spring. The overwhelmingness of it all has left me with little to post about. Even though the bike shop business has been doing better than I might have expected, it's still meant that I've had to dip into the proceeds from my soap business for things like groceries and gas for the car. In the past that's been my fun fund. Allowing me to get yarn and other goodies as I wanted, but when you have to choose between cereal for the kid or a little yarn porn - you make the right choice.
it's nothing but stash knitting for me for right now. it's not a bad thing. it's a stash of lots of one or 1.5 skeins of lots of variagated natural fibers. You can see it here:
that's it. All in one container. there are some FO's in there as well. things that I'm not sure what to do with. things that I knitted for my next baby who will probably never be conceived that I should give to someone who is actually having that next baby but i won't give them away because i think that they're wonky in some way and can't tell until i try them on that 'next' baby of mine because another person's baby shouldn't be subjected to my wonky knits. phwew. breathe.
but i am knitting now. a placket pullover thingy from Last Minute Knitted Gifts for my son. Using Wool of the Andes in the miscellaneous colors that I have.
hoping i have enough of all three to finish a cohesive piece. but it doesn't really matter. he wears anything. there's lots of knitting and baseball watching going on these evenings. trying to not burn out on all the other stresses.
