I've been completely neglecting my blog, because I've been completely neglecting my knitting because of a severe lack of time because of my new job! So, all in all, I'm not complaining, I love my new job (so far :-) ), it's just a pity that it goes at the cost of my precious knitting time.

Since last time, I've finished my Saroyan. I've made it in Drops Cotton Light, in a colour called grape. It's a bit lighter than actual grape, but I love it. I want to wear it always (and show off). Here it is:

And a little detail of the leaf:

My other projects are not getting along to well. Some people suffer from startitis: they don't know what project to do next. My problem is rather the opposite: start-too-fast-itis or something. My Drops Karisma yarn, for instance, was first a zigzag blanket, then a dinosaur sweater, than an Argyle sweater (indeed, I've ripped back what I had done last time, was way too tight) to now become a striped hoodie. Already, I'm starting to see some things that I don't like, but I'm trying to stick to the plan this time and do this pattern!!!! At the same time, I'm working on a dress pattern (if this get finished in, let's say, three years, that would be great), a star sweater for my M, a hat for me, I want to start some children's hats for my friends kids (Four, to be precise, have to be finished in a  month's time...) and a gazillion ideas in my head! I will have to stick to some sort of plan. But for now, I'm off to some housework...
Happy knitting!



  1. Congratulations on the new job....and you are right to be proud of the scarf it is gorgeous. Then I clicked on the dress link, I love that, but I still haven't finished a knitted tunic dress I started last year, just the sleeves to rip back and redo, it wouldn't take long if I put my mind to it. We all have the same problem! Fiona x
