Still Alive

Just thought that I should post a little something, just so that everybody knows that I haven't yet abandoned my blog, I've just been keeping myself a whole lot busier than normal.

In the past week alone, I've finished a mohair cardigan that I had been working on for a little while, then I started and finished a white beanie, started another one because I really liked that pattern so much, and today I started and have almost finished a pair of socks in a lovely blue and green coloured wool.

So I have most definitely been keeping myself busy.

Anyway, it has been a pretty good week, I hung out with Adam and we just kind of bummed around for a while, which is always good, and then on Friday night I hung out with Andrea and Stef and a few other people for a little bit, I met up with them at a sushi train in Cabra.

I've also been thinking about trying to commercialise my knitting a bit more these days. I know that I can knit up a decent pair of socks, a beanie, some mittens or a pair of gloves in a couple of days, I just wonder how little people would actually pay for that type of stuff. I don't really know, but it would be cool to just knit a whole lot of stuff and then at the middle of the year just get a stall somewhere and sell some of my stuff.
I just would never EVER sell any sweaters. They just seem to be so personal and they normally take me forever to knit, and I don't know whether or not i could bring myself to knit something as involved as a sweater or a big piece of work like that which I didn't personally like to begin with.

And just a little side note. One of the main reasons that I am making so many little knick-knacky things at the moment is because I would very much like to start a fair isle sweater from Alice Starmore's Book of Fair Isle Knitting (I mean, who wouldn't?), but I have kind of been banned from getting any more wool until I can deplete my stash a little bit. But I suppose the good thing is that I can buy the wool up slowly and get the right stuff for the job for this one, because I want it to be a really special sweater.

Anyway, I think that that should do it for now, I will take some pictures of the stuff that I have been working on in the past few weeks and put them up in the next post.
