There hasn’t been much blogging, or posting of Instagram worthy photos of late, because there really hasn’t been much making 😕
“My name is Lora and I’m addicted to making”.
So what does a group of knitterly friends make when one of us is having a baby or grandbaby? (yes a few of us are closer to that now)
Maybe that should be no time to knit, or very little knitting done? I’ve had a bit of a hectic social life of late and whilst I crave the opportunity to get out and about, I really would just like to have a little free time to knit.
Lately, it seems like the majority of my knitting has been on projects that have to be kept under wraps. Which does tend to make talking about them a little difficult?
I couldn’t resist sharing a sneaky photo on Instagram the other week, but since then I’ve shown total restraint when it comes to flashing these lovely little baby knits.
Blimey, can you believe it’s already April, not only that we’re into the second week?
I’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus for the last few weeks. My daughter was here for a few days and then my husband was back from working in the UK for a week, so I selfishly enjoyed my time with them instead. When all of them had gone, I suddenly realised that I’d left myself with quite a lot of work to catch up on for the Spring Awakenings Issue of Olann and, so panic stations ensued.
I’m knitting to a deadline for the next issue of Olann and. Nothing new there, but it can have the tendency to suck the joy out of what you’re working on. Fortunately, that isn’t the case with my current knit, but it is killing me that I can’t share my progress. It’s not even something that I could take the odd close up of because I think it might give the game away.
With the majority of my knitting time being spent on getting some of the samples for the next issue of Olann and ready, it feels like I’ve very little of my own projects done.
Maybe that’s why I’ve felt drawn to trying to get a little spinning done of late?
You might have spotted the image of a shade card I posted on Instagram a couple of weeks ago?
My comment was a little cryptic at the time and despite a few good guesses by some of my followers, no one actually worked out exactly what I was up to.
Perhaps this photo might give a little more insight?
(I’ll split this post up into two otherwise it’s going to be incredibly long, sorry)
