So I meant to post this yesterday, but, you know, one can get busy on a Saturday--especially when one is returning to work the following Monday after two months of maternity leave. In any case, I have done some crafting and I have a contest winner.
I like to knit (hi, I am a knitblogger), so I guess I need to own up to the tragicomedy that is my knitting procrastination of late. A Lopi sweater. A Lopi sweater that will need steeking when all the knitting is done.
I am dragging the process out, because, as I have shared many times, the thought of cutting my knitting makes me want to vomit. In any case, I have to finish the sweater to move on to something else (a self-imposed
punishment strategy). That's my new thing. Finish one of the sweaters in process and then I can start something new. I have a few sweaters in process.
These are just my sweaters. We won't talk about the sweaters for the men in my life--they don't count, right? Right.
And since I couldn't start a new knitting project without lots of guilt attached. I decided to delve into a new craft entirely, because that's what I do, craft capriciously.
I used Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching. The critter project (and many others) are in there. I sort of love these little critters. One (the raccoon) is a gift to go with a book(The Kissing Hand). One (an owl) I will take to my office because it makes me smile and the other (owl) will go to the winner of my contest/giveaway. I used one of those random number generators to pick a winner because I couldn't choose based on merit, everyone's goals seemed like good ones (like I am really going to tell anyone that he or she has crappy goals--not so nice). The RNG chose Elli. Elli, I will get in touch with you to discuss your prize. For everyone else, I hope you learn your desired crafts, get healthy, blog more or what have you. Thanks for sharing your goals!
