Yes, Knitting....I haven't done a lot worth blogging about in the past few months. Life has not been kind when it comes to time for my hobbies. I had hoped to have a lot done by this time, but life has once again interfered and stolen those few hours I get to myself. Hopefully things even out soon. I'm getting frustrated.......which is likely why I'm not working on quilting projects. I've stalled on them, so they've been packed away and the knitting is out. Currently, I'm working with my LK150 knitting machine to produce a pullover for my Mom. The yarn is a variegated Bernat Acrylic in colours my mother will really like. It is an easy project and a good refresher for techniques on my knitting machine. It has been some time since the machine has been used, and I'm a bit rusty. Thank heaven for a good reference library! CloseKnit Quality Yarns provided me with a couple of different Katia yarns for scarves. Great fun, and really quick which is what I need right now. Instant gratification is a good thing when you're bored with UFO's.
