So yeah, I still haven’t managed to get all my photo equipment out and take pictures of the plethora of finished objects hanging in my closet. Pathetic, I know. It’s actually on my agenda for tonight, so hopefully tomorrow I will have a more substantive post to share with you all! I’m planning to have a little photo-taking party after the kids are in bed. I’ll pull out the backdrops, the camera, pour a glass of wine, and change clothes all night. Well, not all night. Hopefully I still have time for at least a bit of sewing after it’s all done!
But since I don’t have any finished objects photographed to share with you all today, here’s a little glimpse of one of my works in progress:
This little number is destined to become my first hand-knitted sweater! Isn’t the teal lovely? The color is a little loud, but a bold teal actually looks really good on me and complements my coloring, so I decided to go with it.
I’ve discovered a newfound love of knitting this winter. (BTW, I’m on kglee01 on Ravelry). I picked it up a bit here and there last winter and actually completed a project (that I never blogged — add that to my list for tonight!), but didn’t feel confident enough to try anything beyond cowls. This year I just dove in, and I’m loving it! The repetition of knitting is so relaxing and I love that I can do it while still hanging out with Albert or having quiet time with the kids. I’ve been really motivated to sew this year, but am still struggling to find enough time and energy, so knitting does a nice job of filling the gap. I can sit and veg in front of an episode of Elementary and still accomplish something creative!
What are you working on these days?
