I spent the first 8 months of my pregnancy knitting. Constantly.
I Knitted up:
2 Baby Sweaters, including my first baby surprise jacket!
1 Man Sweater (bottom up raglan crewneck)
1 Kimono Shawl
and a few scarves and hats…
And now I can hardly be bothered to pick up the needles. As I stare at my yarn bowl, I am honestly feeling a wee bit guilty. All of that lovely yarn, just languishing there…looking so, so, so forlorn.
I blame this knitters block on summer and the baby. After all, who wants to knit in the summertime? Since I can rarely be bothered to knit with anything but LOVELY wool…summer is a tough season for me knitwise. Especially when there is so much sewing to be done in my very cozy and cool basement studio! Stacks of fabric inspiration all around me, crafty books and magazines to reference, and even some sketches of projects yet to be made. Yes, I might as well strike while the (sewing) iron is hot!
This week I plan on sewing up a bunch of new aprons and bloomers to begin restocking my Etsy website.
