Vintage Willy Wonka said it best, and I love that movie! To me, Gene Wilder is the perfect Wonka. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am a HUGE Johnny Depp fan in general. But to me, Wonka will always be Wilder. Maybe it's the name? Maybe I like "wild" things? Like this Wildflower Honey from That'll Do Farm that is really super yummy in my tea, and straight off the spoon, too! drools a little at the remembrance of the last cuppa tea. . .But I digress. What was I saying? Oh, that's right, so little time. . .where does it go? I feel like I have been running in secret circles lately. Each time I sit to blog, I want to tell you about what I have accomplished in the my knitting life. However, this close to Christmas and a baby shower, that's really hard to do! All of the knitting I am currently working on is for gifts, so I can't give details, or really great pictures, or even pattern reviews. . .ugh! But I have decided to share a couple of photos, you know, to prove that I have been working on something!
Here's a bunch of stuff that's finished:
That photo represents 4 completed projects! I think all of them are on Ravelry, but I hesitate to show you photos of each piece, lest I lose the surprise factor when they are gifted! This is a closer photo of my most recently finished object, which is also the object of most of my affection lately:
I especially liked this one (and I hope the recipient does too) because it is knit with Italian Yarn, you know, from Italy!!! It's super sweet, and I can't wait to really show it off soon! I'd pray for the time to go faster, but there are still about a dozen projects that I haven't even started yet, and they will all need to be done next month! Yikes!
So all of that "I-can't-tell-you-about-my-knitting" makes for a pretty boring knitting blog, doesn't it? Well, let's see, what can I tell you about? Oh! I know! Remember, back in August, when I joined the Get the Crap Out of My House Challenge? And remember the two, messy corners in the living room, the ones with all the "assorted crap the cats get into"?
Ok, back to knitting. I am knitting and I am crocheting my heart out! I hope to post a bunch of baby item pictures after the shower next month, and then the big, year-end post with all of the Christmas gifts - Yayyyyy! Then I can get back to just showing off everything as I knit it. . .what a relief!
I'm glad you stopped by today! Thanks for reading, and for sticking it out through the secret season. . .I hope your holiday knitting and crafting is on track, and that you are having fun with it!
Knit in Good Health!
