Boring blogging.

I feel like I have nothing to blog about lately. I have been so busy...and tired...that my knitting has taken a back seat. Maybe I need a new project to start?! That usually works.

Here are Bea's sleeves...boring...



I am not usually a fan of picking up stitches from a garter stitch edge, but this seemed to work out fine. I do love the look of the cuffs.

I really like knitting the sleeves at the same time, to get them over with...but boy does it seem to take forever...maybe that is way I haven't been really going at it.

Next up...hopefully a belated birthday gift or two, and some Christmas knitting. Yes people, when you knit for as many people as I like to, I need to start in the summer.

Oh and, I haven't picked up the fabric for my weekender bag, but I did pick up a cute apron pattern...maybe this weekend I whip it up.

FYI: Peg, you asked the colour of the back stairs (also in the basement)...it is Benjamin Moores CC-120 Stonehouse...great colour. I am thinking a mustard, or a green in the kitchen? Am I ready for colour?

Sleeves are pretty boring usually. Those look pretty darn nice, though. Soon you'll be finished!

Bea looks great. Picchu Picchu had the sleeves knit at the same time as the fronts and back. One half the sleeve on the front and the other half on the back! You are right it makes for a long knit and since it was Ultra Alpaca, it was very warm on the lap! Thanks for the colour info!

Go for color! You won't be sorry. I love the sleeve, very pretty.

Ooh I love those cuffs too - very neat.

Sometimes knitting needs to take a back seat for awhile. Don't ever force yourself!

I sooo can't wait to see Bea completed! It will be fabulous. I like doing the sleeves at the same time also. I am ordering a Kim H. kit in the Fay pattern...I can't wait! I promise myself that I would wait until I got to the sleeves on my current project..almost there :)

Painting two walls in our kitchen that deep Chinese red was the best thing I've ever done with paint. I held my breath and just did it. It hipped up the space like I never imagined. My only regret - that we didn't do it sooner. I tend to be afraid of color, but it's the cheapest way to liven up a space, and hey, it's only paint (and your time)- you can always paint over it!

and that sleeve is so very pretty.

haha nice, this happends to me sometimes, I like to cook and I almost cook in my place on the weekend, it's weird because I'm a programmer and sometimes I get confuse about this and I wonder why I do this and another part of me answer, because you like it, haha thanks for sharing.
