Knitting Madness

I think I have to knit to stay sane. With the madness raging all about, knitting grounds me. I’m not sure why, but it does. Some might think it monotonous with all the k1 p1 k1 p1 k1 p1 k1 p1 k1 p1…….but for me it’s a quiet rhythm. I suppose I could be reading and I do, but I have to have something to do with my hands besides turning pages. I guess it’s the ADD coming out in one form or another.

I’ve just committed to a few projects…..I invested in a new yarn stash. I guess some like the coziness of piles of yarn. Not me. If I don’t use what I have I feel wasteful. It’s such an investment. Sweet Girl saw the total of my yarn order since she was hanging over my shoulder picking out a yarn for a request she made. She gasped. But if you figure paying for each of these items that are handmade….well…you’d pay a whole lot more! Trust me, I know the hours that go into these things and you could never pay me to knit for you.  Well, ok, maybe you could….I do have knitted items for sale at Butterflies & Bumble Bees!

Here’s what’s on my agenda.

Sweet Girl has requested a scarf….so I asked if she’d like this neat shawl that I’d already purchased the pattern for. I love it…so now I’ll be making two, one for her and one for me!

Oh yeah!

Then Honey picked out a Charcoal Heather called Cobblestone for this…

I finished the Sheepwalk & Fence Vest from Autumn House Farm. I need to block it and it will be finished.

Socks, socks and more socks!

Then Honey picked out two colors for me. He loves to see me in an Autumn Orangie color….my old best friend (old sweater I wear all the time) has all the Autumn tones and he loves that sweater.

This one for the Fiona Sweater below from Autumn House Farm.

Oh, and I do love that name. Fiona. That will be the name of my next female animal and speaking of animals…..I’m twisting Honey’s arm for this little guy.

Isn’t he the cutest….he is an LGD…Livestock Guard Dog! I’m not going to link him, cause I really want him. Sorry. You’re on your own.
