Over whelmed!

Posted on

There seem to be hundreds of knitting, crochet and sewing projects that i’m working on at the moment, and i am now feeling a little overwhelmed (something that doesn’t really happen that much). I keep trying to organize my time and put things in order, but some how life just seems to get in the way- not to mention the fact that i want to do everything!

I’m using this as an excuse for not blogging in a while, but i really should have found time :s The plane pictures from knit in public day are now up though, (yay!) and i’ll add more as soon as i can get the memory card from the camera to comply to my demands!

Other exciting news is that i have finally got the Malabrigo Sock weight yarn up for sale on my Etsy shop MagpieShineyEmporium

There are a variety of gorgeous colours to choose from, and i am happy to alter postage costs as needed if you want more than one skein or don’t mind going second class etc.

Whilst doing everything in the world at once I came across this wonderful “how to” from a vintage knitting magazine. It’s by Margaret Maino and is about knitting blunders- in this case dropping stitch, which i’m sure is most knitters worst nightmare! I wanted to pass it along to you to try and ease any sleepless nights you may have in the future because of this 🙂

Happy problem solving people 🙂
