2 month catch up

30 05 2010

I don’t know if anyone is still visiting here, but if you are, thanks for sticking around! Let’s see, since I last was around these parts I’ve done quite a bit. My energy levels went back up for a little while so I finally got around to catching up with some of my projects.

I’ve done some sewing: finishing some box bags that had been half done for a long time and reopening the Etsy shop, making a Scottie Dog for the baby

Misshapen little Scottie - the nicer side

and finally making covers for couch cushions we bought a year ago.

I also cast on for another pair of socks: a pair of Sunday Swing socks out of some variegated Yarntini [Ravelry details]. It was due time for another pair of pink socks!

I’m also making good progress on my Ursa cardigan. I finally finished the back and am now ready for finishing up the fronts. After that, just a collar and sewing up will be left!

Lu, back done, time to finish the fronts

I’m really looking forward to finishing the cardigan so that I can start on some knitting projects for the baby! I got this awesome green Cascade 128 to make a little cardi.

DH got me these 4 skeins of Knitpicks Stroll Tonal with which I plan to make some pants, cardi and hat set also.

I’m being realistic though and don’t know how much I’ll get done before the baby’s born. I’m due in 8 weeks, it’s getting there fast! I also want to sew a quilt, make a bunting and a mobile… Yikes! Thankfully I’ve only a few weeks left at work and then I’ll get to do more of the crafty stuff! Wish me luck!

Best of luck with the final stretch! Sounds like you have lots of great projects up your sleeve.

The couch cushions look great — I bought fabric for mine and need to get to work. And Ursa’s going to be awesome!

My sister and I had one of those handmade Scottie dogs when we were little – much loved I might add.
