...I mean..in my crafty life.. I've always had this mortal fear to knit anything that has to fit...which means I still haven't knit an adult sweater. Yes. I don't have a hand-knit sweater or cardigan. Every time I get the motivation to knit a cardigan,I research zillion patterns and decide on the yarn and there ends my efforts to knit a cardigan for myself. So, I finally took the plunge and decided to throw caution to the wind and cast on for Odelia(Ravelry link). Its a stockinette cardigan with almost no seaming. I've knit 6 inches of it and I'm liking it.
That is my earring moonlighting as a stitch-marker. I love the way the stockinette curls and its very therapeutic to knit the mindless stockinette. I look forward to knitting this cardigan at the end of a hectic day. I spoke about an Anchor stitch-kit that I finished after coming to Bangalore in my last post. Here is a picture of it..
I am yet to frame it. I hope to hang it in my house after getting it framed. I started this kit almost 2 years ago and left it to hibernate in some corner in my old house. This recent relocation unearthed this project from its hibernation and I decided to finish it for good. Here is a close-up of it.
Did I tell you that I have a dedicated craft-room in my new home? Its supposed to be a kids' room done in pinks and lilacs. But, I've decided to use it as my craft room and its in a royal mess. I have also decided to make curtains and some home-decor projects for my home. I have so many ideas and plans for this new house but, so little time to accomplish anything. We are on a school-hunt for Alvin. I hope we find a good school for him close to our home soon. All of this is eating into my craft time. Someday soon, I hope my life will fall into a lulling routine and I will get some me-time for my hobbies..
