Wow - Time FLIES!

So, I didn't win any medals in the Knitting Olympics. That's okay. I made some good progress on a sock before deciding that I really didn't like the yarn I was using or the way it wasturning out and scrapped it! I need to get some yarn I love, rather than something that is in the bargain bin, to do my first socks, I think! My rationale was "It's cheap - so if they don't turn out - oh well!" BUt I didn't like the color, didn't like the feel, didn't really like it!! I think I am going to try some of the gorgeous colors that I've seen over on Lolly's site (from the company that is making the Project Spectrum yarns).

I am making REALLY good progress on some baby gifts for my soon to be nephew or niece!! And I have lots of time - the baby isn't due til sometime in Sept or Oct. I need to get cracking on a few baby gifts for friends that are due over teh next few months.

Had a FUN trip to the fabric store the other day. Got some home dec fabric cheap. Going to make some bags. Haven't sewn in a while and I have the itch to get back to it.

Organizing my craft space is getting me excited about crafting!! Now I just need to find the right table....maybe do some garage saling or flea marketing this Spring.
