Time - if only I had any.

I would:

Blog every day, with pictures even.
Knit the Hanami Stole.
Actually decide on which colours of Socks that Rock to buy, there are so many I can never make the decision.
Commit to a large freeform beading project.
Exercise every day, Tae Bo(sp), & weights

What would you do if you had more time?

Double yay! I've got the day off tomorrow, I am hoping to get at least one piece of jewellery made.

A distraction from crafting

I've been hearing about the Twilight series of books by Stefanie Meyer for a while, but have been resisting as I prefer to make stuff than read stuff in my so called spare time. This weekend however the local bookshop had a 3 for 2 offer so I decided to go for it. Needless to say there has been absolutely no beading or knitting in this house. The 1st book in particular was really engrossing, I love finding a new book that intrigues and excites. So much on TV these day seems to be recycled ideas, it was fun to find something new. Maybe I should try & make room for more reading instead of making.

Yay, shame hubby can't say the same. He smoked 2 cigarettes on Friday. I am so upset with him.

I must have been nuts

To think I could knit 20 pairs of socks in a year. Not with all that's going on. I'm scrapping that idea , sans the guilt complex, and will instead attempt to document my progress towards Summer Of Socks 2008.

My first completed pair of socks for SOS 2008 were my 1st ever pair of toe-ups, anklets in Regia that ended up looking like they were knit for Hobbit feet. Comfy though. I am 3/4 way through a lovely pair of Fawkes socks (designed by the late Gigi Silva, wonderful pattern) using J Knits sock yarn in Florida, it's bright yellow and orange and knits like butter, I love it!

This weekend my Gran had a heart attack, she's recovering , but to deal with the stress I cast on & ripped out 4 different patterns. I finally settled on Primevera socks In Regia Silk, lovely bright stripes in blue, purple pink, orange & yellow. It's a super simple pattern & knitting up a treat, think I'll give them to nana when she gets out of hospital.

We interrupt this blog fade

To say Hi. Blog fade after 10 posts must be a record. Family issues and a bad back have been responsible. Hopefully things'll perk up around here soon.
