Do you knit or crochet socks? Do you like to blog about them and share your progress? The first Thursday of every month, my friends and I link up with each other and talk about our socks…the good, the bad, and the ugly. The beauty of a link up party is the ability to jump in and out when you want to share….even if you’ve knit just one row or want to talk about what you’re dreaming of making next. Click the link below to join in, follow the instructions, then link back to my blog so we can all share in the happiness of your gorgeous socks! Feel free to use the beautiful OUAS images Stefanie, from stefaniecraftswithwoolpaperfabric, created just for us. All are included within my blog.
For all those going through the frigid temps, no matter where you are or what frigid temps means to you, I hope you’re safe and staying warm!
I know I’m starting to sound redundant and I don’t know what’s gotten into me. I have not knitted or crocheted a single stitch since our January OUAS post. Not a single one. So, needless to say, I have no progress to share with you and for that, I do apologize. I’m in a crafting slump…like my mind wants to make all the things; however my heart isn’t in it right now. It all started when we moved and I wasn’t able to go to my knitting group anymore. It’s about an hour drive away now and that’s just too much time to take out of my work schedule to commit to, along with having a much longer drive to doctors appointments, plus all the other things that go along with owning a new house. I mean, of course I’ve knitted and crocheted since then; I’m just in a serious stage where I haven’t been motivated to do anything.
What I need to do is to start going to a local knitting group. Apparently a group of ladies meets at our local library on Thursdays to knit and crochet. Maybe I’ll make a plan of doing that this week since I’m getting caught up on work and don’t have any appointments this week. I know that when I’m around like-minded souls, then my heart sings and wants to do all the things again. Wish me luck!
In other news, guess what? My husband has surprised me with a two week trip overseas for my 50th birthday! What???? I know, right? I’m so flipping excited about it! I desperately need to get my passport now. So, for any overseas friends, I will be in London from May 4th through May 10th and then I will be in Paris from May 11th through May 18th. My birthday is on the 16th, so I will be spending my 50th in Paris!!!! Gah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My hubby has plan with his daughter for the first three days, so I’ll be all my lonesome if anyone wants to get together! Maybe we could do a little social thing where everyone meets up in a pub? Let me know!!!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
