So many projects, so little time

I don't know why it is, when I am at home most of the time, and have no small children, that I still don't have time to knit as much as I would like. I'm not a fast knitter either, and my list of projects-to-be is growing faster than I can keep up with it! 

I am working on the poncho still, I have almost a quarter of the squares done. It's a nice simple knit, and the large needles and chunky yarn means it knits up quite quickly (for me!). I try to do a square or two each evening, as well as a few inches of the border for the baby blanket, as the baby is due in a couple of weeks. I also have a cream coloured hat in mind, a gift for someone and a bag for myself. Oh, and wrist warmers to match the poncho, if I have enough yarn left over. 

I'm reading The Kiss, I am just a few pages in and it looks to be quite dark and disturbing.  I just looked it up on Amazon to link to (not getting paid for doing so, just making it easy for anyone to check it out), and realised it's a memoir, which makes it all the more disturbing. It's a good read so far. 

Tomorrow I am off on a day out with my craft group to a craft fair somewhere in the Essex countryside. I am looking forward to a nice country drive, the company of friends, hopefully a cream tea, and of course I will restrain myself from buying the materials for any more craft projects.....

    Ohh! Enjoy the craft fair - and do make sure you get some crafty materials and share them on your blog with us :)

    Krugthethinker said: I love the color of that yarn too! My own project has been a bit neglected lately, as I've been doing more cross-stitch and working on some writing projects, but you are making me want to get back to it! Enjoy your cream tea! :)
