Month: April 2010

April 30, 2010 / Dear Diary

For most of this week, I have been completely convinced of my inability to produce an FO post today but lo and behold… I reached Thursday afternoon, the trees cleared, and I finally saw the metaphorical wood. In other words, I whipped that craft room into proper order and had space in which to work.

To be truthful, I do not suppose this really is a finished object; it is a finished weaving, but it has yet to become whatever it is destined to be.

Today is Day 5 of Knit/Crochet Blog week and today’s prompt is:

Location, Location, Location

Where do you like to indulge in your craft? Is your favourite arm chair your little knitting cubby area, or do you prefer to ‘knit in public’? Do you like to crochet in the great outdoors, perhaps, or knit in the bath, or at the pub?

I prefer to be at home rather than being anywhere else and so I naturally do the majority of my knitting at home…

I shall keep today’s post brief as I am not really here, but elsewhere. I have bene busy and not had time to do much research f or this Thursday’s Thrill, but I thought that I would share with you this pattern that I discovered via reading one of the Knit/Crochet Blog Week posters yesterday. This is Cherrymakesstuff’s choice of inspirational pattern and I have to agree with Cherry about how wonderful it is…

Today is Day 3 of Knit/Crochet Blog week and today’s prompt is:
A New Skill

Is there a skill related to your hobby that you hope to learn one day? maybe you’re a crocheter who’d also like to knit? Maybe you’d like to learn to knit continental, knit backwards, try cables or attempt stranded colourwork.

As I have written on this subject very recently, perhaps I should take the wild card today… or maybe not…

A little while ago, GingerNutsUK made a post in the p/hop group on Ravelry — “We need your knitting!”

MSF were looking for knitted examples of the free p/hop patterns to use for displays around the UK this year. The first of the displays will be at Woolfest.

I stepped up to the line and offered to make up Asa Tricosa’s Dido Shawl…

It is Day 3 of Knit/Crochet Blog Week and this post answers the prompt:

Write about a knitter whose work (whether because of project choice, photography, styling, scale of projects, stash, etc) you enjoy. If they have an enjoyable blog, you might find it a good opportunity to send a smile their way.

It is Day 2 of Knit/Crochet Blog Week and this post answers the prompt:

Blog about a pattern or project which you aspire to. Whether it happens to be because the skills needed are ones which you have not yet acquired, or just because it seems like a huge undertaking of time and dedication, most people feel they still have something to aspire to in their craft. If you don’t feel like you have any left of the mountain of learning yet to climb, say so!
