The colder days also have me thinking it might be time to bring out the needles. I need a break from sitting at the sewing machine, and the thought of snuggling under a quilt to do some knitting is suddenly becoming very appealing. I can imagine you folks in the northern hemisphere have had enough of that right now and you're ready to throw off your layers and dance in the sun, but for us down south, it's quite the opposite.
With thoughts turning to knitting, I've also realised that most of the blogs I've been following since starting here are about patchwork and quilting, and that I really needed to rectify that by adding some woolly reading to the list. Here are a few I've started following on Bloglovin this week – click on the blog names to go directly to the sites for a peek.
sections that have to be undone and re-knitted... Which finally brings me to my finishing goal for April. Another project that has been hanging around for way too long.
I thought I'd finish it last year and was just doing the underside of the sleeves when I decided the colour was too dark. I was knitting it in black because that was all I had left, but it just looked wrong. Being so close to the end of the season, it just got put back in its bag and left there.
So, a year on and here I am again. Now it's out there as my April goal though, the pressure is really on to finish it this time!
