I’m back!

So after a bit of a break, wherein I got married, went on honeymoon for a month, fell pregnant, had even worse morning sickness than the first time mixed in with a decent bout of depression; I have finally made it back to the land of the living, and crafting and blogging.

I’ve gone from doing nothing at all to suddenly having many projects on the go. All are just variations on a theme really.

Number 1: FINISHED!

A table runner

A table runner for the top of my son’s chest of drawers. I’m not even sure why I’m doing this one, as noone seems to care about a layer between the chest and all the junk, but there you go. This one doesn’t have long to go – it will probably only be 8 stripes in total and is a good one to take in the car or to parks.

Number 2: FINISHED!

cradle rug for baby

A cradle blanket for Baby #2. The benefit of this is that it’s a smaller blanket and therefore more likely that I will finish it before the due date. My one problem is the incredibly steep price of cotton yarn at Lincraft these days, and the fact that noone else seems to be making grey cotton yarn.

Update: Lincraft have had a bit of a sale on, so I stocked up. I ended up buying 5 balls of grey, but am only about to finish the first ball after reaching the halfway mark, so I’ve obviously overestimated there.

Number 3: Haven’t even started

I’m not even sure why I’m making this one, except that I really like the colour combination of sage green, moss green, mid grey, and white. This one will be either a ripple blanket or a star blanket.

Number 4:

I really should finish the christmas tree skirt I started for last year. It only needs a few more rounds on it to fully cover the table that the tree sits on.
