Kattwings Knits

knitting that flys off the needles

Saturday, 19 July 2008


Does anyone know of a cure for startitis? My UFO list which had gotten down to 5 items..Is now back up to 7 items. Though 2 of them are only little things that I could get finished in a day each item.

I have to start my ordered item for Demz. And then there is the two beret I want to make my girls matching their jumpers. The list goes on and on!! It really never does end does it?

Adam is off at the state poker final today. I hope he does well. He has made it to the first break so that's a good sign. Down side is I am left with the girls all day!!! No transport to go anywhere. They are behaving though (unlike the last few state finals Adam has been to).

On the UFO front. I am further through a few of my items I have on the list.

The "A Star Is Born" girls jumper now has the back fully done.

I got the baby jumper that wasnt on list but I started up to needing just the sleeves done (and then the collar).

Oooh a dear friend of mine decided my yarn diet needed to be ruined more. I got an sms (text message) from her earlier this week. Telling me about this HUGE yarn sale on up in her state. She tempted me with colours and prices and I was weak..WEAK I tell you!!! Soooo it ends up I have 75 balls of pure wool on the way (in 4 colours)...And at a great bargain price of about 77c a ball (including dividing up postage costs)!! Its in the mail. And I am soooo looking forward to getting it. Now I just need to grow another 2 sets of arms so I can get through HALF of the yarn I have in my stash and half my list of things I want to knit! Not even sure if this new wool is going to fit in the new yarn box I got..lol

No piccies today. Though I do need to take pics of a hat I finished. My aim today is to get the Handwarmer I have on the needles done (got one fully knitted one to go) or maybe work on the ordered socks I NEED to get finished..That might be a good idea too!! Tomorrow I will start the ordered jumper by Demz.

Hope you all have a great weekend!! Happy Knitting!!!!!!!!!!

    I am surprised there is any room left in your house to move, what with all the wool you've bought lately!!!!

    Solution for startitis is to start every day with this mantra:

    "Hello, my name is Katt, and I am a project polygamist."

    Guess who's been watching Big Love?!

    Katt, you are a knitting powerhouse, and all powerhouses require a range of systems and materials in order to produce the goods, so your startitis is simply the natural state of productive creativity that is Powerhouse Katt Pty Ltd.
