As I sit here on a Saturday morning, drinking my surprisingly hot cup of tea, I can’t help but wonder where the month of July has gone. Seriously, it feels like we closed our eyes and boom it’s August. For me, this means that I failed abysmally to complete any of the ongoing projects that were supposed to be done by now. While the deadlines were self imposed I still can’t help but feel that, as the British would say, I’m rubbish at organizing.
The first project I was supposed to have finished was my Top pattern.
I don’t really have any excuses as to why this isn’t published yet. I guess time just got away from me and I kept adjusting and re-adjusting the look of it. Also I got distracted by wanting to work up this top in different yarn weights and different bases as well. The yarn used for this design is a bulky weight cotton which may not be for everybody. But seriously if this does not get published by mid-August, I shall have to take drastic measured.
Another on going WIP that I desperately wanted to get off my needles was my fiance’s socks. Which I actually don’t have on hand to show you, and what’s more, I don’t think I have ever taken a picture of them. Suffice it to say that he reminds me often enough of the fact that I have yet to even complete one sock. If I applied myself I’m sure I could get them finished. But I get distracted by all the other shiny, new, amazing patterns I find and then I come into conflict with my need to have as many handmade socks as possible and not wanting to work on them.
Since I am sock shaming myself right now, I’m going to take it one step further.
These socks have been on my needles for over a year…. Nothing else to say about them, except that I have finished the one shown in the picture and have about 3 rows of the cuff done. Yay?
To this list, I must also add my Long neglected Liula Stole, which I feel horrendous for not having finished because the person who design it, Emma Potter, is someone I greatly admire, MUST FINISH!
Did your Summer turn out as crafty as you expected it to be?
