Kicked it

Seems this cable and rib jumper is what I needed to kick the startitis. Lets face it, when you have been itching to start something for over a month but have stopped yourself, nothing else is going to please. But its been slow knitting. When I get time I do some. I have almost finished the back (or is it the front?? Its both the same anyway). Love how its looking too. Looking forward to getting it finished.

I still have fleeting flirting thoughts about other knitted items, but I am staying monogamous to this jumper til its done.

The weather here has been lovely. Rained all day yesterday. Today its cloudy and windy..This is the summer weather I love..LOL yes..I know..its not really summer weather. Which is why I love it.

My itching for motorbike racing will soon be scratched. This coming week the Moto testing starts again. Superbikes had theirs last week, and one of my favourite riders broke himself (damnit)..They think he will be back to fighting form by the time the season starts Mid Feb.

Still no piccies to show off. I have been such a slacker and taken none for over a month. Will have to get my act together on the next really nice day.

Apart from knitting little, playing poker a lot, and trying to find nice charms for my pandora bracelet I have only been up to the usual wife/mum/homeperson rubbish. Boring life I lead. Next Tuesday my knitting group get together again so really looking forward to that.

I have bought my parents their birthday presents from etsy this year. Now I have to hope they turn up in time, I get the feeling my dads wont. They guy making it for me had a family issue which has sent them into a spin so there has been a delay. I wont hold it against him (family should always come first). But might have to make dad wait a little for his pressie. Mums is meant to be already in the mail so looking forward to getting that since her birthday is at the end of this month (dads is beginning of next).

I have had a few issues with etsy at the moment. I bought some cardstock tags for my items over a month ago. They never arrived (December is an evil month to mail things), the lovely seller is redoing some and sending them off to me again. Lets hope this lot turns up.

Okies folks. I best go get myself some lunch, its almost 2pm and haven't eaten all day! Happy knitting! Enjoy your upcoming week.

Serious Startitis

Since finishing those toys I have had a SERIOUSLY bad case of startitis!! I have started so many things, lost interest and started something else 6 times...Well..One of those 6 things has been finished.

Main problem is a baby jumper that I just totally not interested it doing. I have tried 3 different times using 2 different patterns and 2 different lots of wool. I just cant get into it. So..for once, I admit defeat. I am just gonna buy something for this baby. Dont go thinking I neglected it totally..I have knitted a beanie and socks for it.

Another project is a raglan jumper that I have lost the piece of paper I write down where I am up to on it. I will have to sit down and put effort into working it out before I can finish.

I have a facewasher half finished (yes..my startitis is THAT bad that I cant even finish a facewasher)...

I finished a chunky beanie which I started at the beginning of the year but even that took me a hell of a lot longer then it should have.

Today I started a toddler jumper that I have been itching to start for over a MONTH. Really hoping this will kick the startitis in the butt.

The weather has been horrid though the past 2 days havent been so bad, so not much knitting has been geting done.

I am 99.9% back to health, which is great. And i fought it all off myself without needing Anti Bs.

I really have to get some wool dyed soon for the shop. I have some sitting here, just between being sick and hot weather I have been a little put off. But it might be time for the butt to get wiggling.

No pics sorry, havent done much knitting to be taking pics of. Sure you will all understand.

Happy knitting
