Yes. I know.
It's been over a half a year since I last said a word to you. It's sad and its shameful and i'm sorry. The truth is, I can make tons of excuses-I was busy with my last semester of school, I've been busy preparing for my sister's wedding that was a couple weeks ago, graduating, trying to find a job...etc. But the truth is, is that I've always said to people who say, "oh I'd love to learn to knit/crochet/play the ukulele/etc, but i just don't have enough time" that if you really want to do something, you make the time. So yes. I'll call bullshit on myself and say that I haven't really been inspired to get on here. Also, I got in a major rut where I wasn't in the mood to knit much for the past six months. I've got two scarves that are almost done, but have been in the same state for months. I've got 3/4s of a sock done. It's just been...i don't know. I haven't been in the mood to knit much.
However, I have been more in the mood to crochet, especially over the past month or so, and in reviewing the projects I've made since we last spoke, its mostly been crochet...so thats. interesting. I've done a bunch of very small projects over the past month, as well as finished up a really large project, which was a beautiful chevron shawl in a glittery yarn for my grandmother for my sister's wedding. I unfortunately do not have pictures of that, because I gave it to her before taking pictures-my bad. seriously. my bad. it was glorious.
Anyway, before I show you some pictures of some projects I've completed since I last posted, I wanted to let you know some big news that I alluded to up there. I got engaged! In march. So...not really new, but still exciting! Anyway, here are some pictures, i'll do them in time order, starting from last december to now.
1. Aryeh's Anniversary/Birthday Blanket (crochet)
2. Turban Headbands (knit)
|These were two quick projects I did. I haven't worn them out, but maybe I will in the fall.|
3. Mosaic Hat (crochet)
Hmm...i can't seem to find pictures of it on my computer. See it on my ravelry page here. Yes, it looks cute, but it came out too small and looked awful with my hair. I got a really horrible haircut in December that I am still growing out, and this hat was able to highlight every awful bit of it.
4. Starburst Lap Blanket (crochet)
This was a blanket that I started years ago, and unearthed in my room this past winter. All i really needed to do was finish up a round and sew in the ends. I believe I wanted to do three more rounds in the purple color, but I decided that it was better done now, than never done.
5. Flower Pins (crochet)
These are awesome, and I love using them to add to my outfits. Planning on making more.
I'm addicted to these. I made three, all this week.
