Nearly a month

Obviously I am not doing well. It’s been a while since it’s been this long between post. Thanks you guys for putting up with me this long. Thank you for the likes and the follows. Last I checked I am either close to or at 100 and that’s pretty awesome.

I haven’t updated for a number of reasons including my complete lack of actually completing one single thing this month. Quite pitiful I must say. I did pick up Playful Citrus 2.0 again finally but too little too late to finish in my March 31st deadline.

I have half left to do. I love the pattern and it’s not hard to work. I don’t know why each time I’ve worked on it I’ve deemed (subconsciously) it necessary to set it aside for about 2 months. :(

Just as everything else I am still spinning the fiber you’ve seen on the spindles. Not much progress.

The other not worth showing. I did however redyed the pink and purple fiber to add a touch more purple.

There is just so much to do and I fear due to my hands hurting, lack of consistent motivation, and poor time management it’s just not happening.

O guys. Please bare with me.

Oops

I’ve done it again. I’ve fallen into the trap of letting Playful Citrus 2.0 (Karmen’s cardigan) linger untouched for two months. I have no legitimate reason as to why. Well not exactly. My mood has been very poor, as a result my energy has been non-exsistent and thus my hobbies has suffered.

Without going into too much detail about how this has effected other things in short I’ve accomplished very little worth blogging about.

One thing I have done however (knitting hasn’t been one of them) is dye my own yarn. I don’t recall mentioning this in my last post. I did finish dyeing all of the purple and pink fiber and now it’s on a spindle slowly being transformed.

I enjoyed the process so much I decided to do it a second time.

But it came out more green and with less blue than I would have liked. So the second half I did more blue and less green.

Combined…

I love the outcome and look forward to spinning it. Right now, in addition to spinning the pink and purple fiber I am also spinning some greys.

So, that’s what I have been up to. I have the desire to knit but not the drive if that makes sense. What have ya’ll been up to?
