Forgive me, blog readers, for I have sinned...it's been a MONTH since my last post! Oh dear.
But the washing is on the line (yes, it is finally SUNNY after what seems like a month of rain as well, but is really only maybe a week and a half), the boys are at the park, I have a cup of tea and some milo slice, and I am blogging!
Sadly, not so busy on the crafting front. Connor has been sleeping less during the day, and since nap times are my main knitting/crochet time, I have been missing out a bit. And I've even fallen behind for the first time with my sexypuffs - only 20 done in May! (June is going to be even worse...lucky I'm ahead of schedule a bit).
Out: a measly 3.25 x 50g balls. Gick!
Metres used: Only 547m (YTD: 4,577.5m)
Stash neutral? No...+16.5 x 50g balls
I have also been working on a sample for a new class I am going to be teaching at another yarn store (a sneak peek below) which is soaking as I type, to be blocked while the sun continues to shine (who knows how long it will stay sunny!).
Tour de France KAL project. I've got two options:
This vest, in Noro Shirakaba - I have even swatched! And OMG, this feels DIVINE. It's a cotton/silk/nylon/wool blend and knits up just so nicely.
The other option is a crochet motif something something in this yarn:
I'm leaning towards the crochet, mostly because I know I can finish the project during the TdF, whereas I probably won't finish the vest. Not that I really care about finishing, but it would be nice to actually get something done done DONE in that space of time. What do you think? And if you want to sign up for the KAL, it is not too late!
