I haven’t done much sewing lately, though there are plans in the works for it. But with my kiddos around 24-7, it’s much easier to knit. Portable, easy to pick up and put down, and I can even do it while playing Sorry with L3. The most sewing I’m up to is hemming pants for my grandfather. Maybe I’ll sew during quiet time this week. Anyway, I wanted to show the knitterly among you (or even those who are knitter wannabes among you (um, Inkwench?)) what I have been up to lately. There was a bit of a sneak peak of one project from the vacation post. I currently have 4 WIPs going on. Here they are:
- Apres Surf Hoodie (I’m calling it my yoga hoodie) from IK Summer 2008
- Emma’s Unmentionables from Knitty Spring 2008 for L4 (someday I’ll make the adult version for me!)
- Snicket Socks for KABs (her yarn, reknitting because she wasn’t digging the stockinette stitch sock she made for herself out of it. The yarn is delish!)
- February Lady Sweater as a KAL with KAB.
I know some people like to focus on one project at a time, but I like to be able to switch. Some are better for trips ’round town then others, and some are good for reading and knitting or talking and knitting and some just aren’t. The one most suitable for taking with me to book club this evening, L4’s Unmentionables, have a broken needle, courtesy of L1. He sat on it or something like that and it is cracked. We’re going to try and fix it, but if we can’t, I’ll need a new set of US 5s. Drat. While I knit I am daydreaming about when I’m going to wear the items for me, or watching L4 prance around in her little pants. Daydreaming–one of the little moments of bliss in a day filled with parenting and self challenges.
