I've got a problem.
I just can't seem to focus on making one thing... or even just two or three things!
I have countless projects on the go and here is a sneaky peek at what I've been working on... these photo's don't include all of the things that I have been making for the Advent swap though, as obviously I don't want to ruin the surprise for Jo before she receives her parcel!
So to start, a pretty pink cardigan for Rose... It's knitted on a circular needle but I got stuck on one bit of the pattern, I then just got frustrated and moved onto the next thing!
I'm knitting myself a scarf/shawl that I came across on Ravelry, it's quite a popular pattern and is lovely to knit up. I had to frog my first attempt after I had got almost half way as I realised the two balls of yarn I had got through were a different dye-lot and I only noticed when I saw it in a different light. I could have carried on, but I know I wouldn't have been happy with it. So I've decided to knit a pair of handwarmers with that different ball of yarn as the slight colour difference wont be as noticeable. I won't be making that mistake again!!
This is Rose's quilt-in-the-making... maybe I'll manage to get it finished to give to her for her first Christmas, I hope so anyway! I reallllyyy love the fabric from the Jellyroll it's made from, I have enough fabric left over tat I could make something to match, maybe a wall hanging or something...hhmmm...
A minty green beret, I began crocheting this when we were on holiday but then it got a little forgotten about when we got home. I only remembered it when I was in the process of organising my craft shelves that are completely crammed full of things at the moment.
This is the beginning's of a baby blanket for Rose, again another pattern I found through Ravelry.
Well there you go, an insight into what I have got going at the moment. Of course there are many other forlorn projects on my shelves, I don't know why I can't just finish things before starting something else!
I really love making things but to be honest, I do find it all rather stressful... there are just So many things I want to make but I just don't have the time to do it all. That probably sounds completely stupid as there are much more important things to be worrying about, but I just wish I could organise my time better to get thing's done. I see other people on their blogs who are always producing lovely things and I know I shouldn't do but I get a little jealous that they have the patience to stick with whatever their making and actually finish it!
