About slippery slopes…

…and good intentions.

I did intend to be a more frequent blogger, honest. That is, when I was not thinking of shutting down the blog altogether. But well. There’s work (March was hectic), some weaving, lots of reading (Simon Brett, an abortive Cecilia Ahern [I think I’m too old for her, I was quite bored and couldn’t finish the book], Dick Francis [I actually found one that apparently I hadn’t read], lots of comfort reads) and reading always beats most other things. And I think it always will.

So. Only a couple of posts in March.

Among the things I wove in March was this scarf, with some textured yarn I bought from Pony, that I would normally never have bought for crochet or knitting.

(click through to go to my Ravelry project page) The scarf is for sale, if you’re interested.

But I also actually knit something! This was a sweater for a baby boy, and I’d loved the pattern as soon as I saw it on Ravelry. Madeline does very interesting texture.

Boy blue

This was to go with a blanket I wove with the same microfiber yarn. I pieced it together from three panels in a reversible pattern (one side has horizontal stripes and the other has vertical ones, both from one warp). I wasn’t too happy with my seaming, though.

I’m loving the weaving, but I need to master the finishing, especially with sewing.
