Month: February 2009

February 1, 2009 /

For some time now I have been itching to tackle a more substantial knitting project. I am minded to do the kind of knitting that goes on for a while – not in the sense that it languishes in the workbasket, but more in the vein of a large-scale and challenging project. This is the main reason that I have been working to clear my basket out. I want to knit something that requires living with it for a while. I had at first imagined that this would be an intricate large laceweight shawl…

…anyway, I have been shopping!

The Fear Factor. Cosy weekend living. Plans for knitting and not-knitting.
“Well. This is it. This is the truly scary bit. The winners are announced and I will make them a bespoke gift. What will they want? Shall I be able to execute it satisfactorily? ”
“…Still feel like I am wading waist deep in mud with my knitting… Overall, the January FO list is very pleasing,…not planning much for February – I really have a lot of stuff going on …it may be possible to sit in the sitting room with my wheel now and again… “

It’s the 1st February and that means that the Pay It Forward giveaway is now closed. I hope that the concept remains and would urge readers to consider making a similar offer on their own blog space when they have the resources to do so. It’s good to give.
