I haven't been updating too much. This is largely in part because I haven't been knitting very much. The hubby and I are dealing with some issues with the house and being unemployed at home right now. So I've been distracted and focusing my energy lately. I'm still getting things done, just at a much slower rate. Right now in progress...

Sylvi. I've also got both sleeves and one front panel finished. I want to get this finished so badly. Other things just keep jumping in my way. I have the other front panel, hood, seeming, and the flower petals to do. Really, it isn't THAT much.

Swallowtail. Now this is an inprogress picture of the one that is already finished. But imagine this in black and it's a near acurate view of the one I ma working on now. Yes... I said BLACK.. hence why it is taking so long. Well that and the fact that for some strange reason, this is a challenging pattern for me. It is, thankfully, easier than the first time though.

Balmoral. This one is in hybernation, but I thought I would show it to you anyway. I love the yarn, and I am in love with the shawl. I just got overwhelmed during the crafting process as that is when everything started going nuts here at home. I'm a good deal further than this, but I don't have a current project picture. It's probably 2-3x's the size in the picture. But I'm only 10% into it or so. This will likely go on hold until the weather warms up again. It's just not high on the priority list right now.
And then of course I am working on NaNoWriMo. I am behind at the moment, but not desperately so. I still think I have a good shot at completing on time.

So NaNoWriMo is upon us again! For those of you who have no idea what this means, it stands for National Novel Writing Month.

30 days, 50000 words. GO!

I'm making good progress this year despite the fact I started four days late. Root for me!

New things!

Here are a few things I haven't shown you yet. I REALLY must get better about updating this a bit more regularly. I do love showing you what I have been up to recently.

This is my Halloween Travels shawl. the yarn was an absolute joy to work with. It's Kroy sock yarn and I think I am in love. I am also thankful to have some knitting friends with the same taste in yarn that I have. I ran out at the end and two people from over at HPKCHC sent me their leftovers so I could finish!

I've also been working on a series of tea wallets. I really like them. They are quick, cute and allow you take tea with you anywhere. They can also be change purses or really carry anything you like. I'm still working on perfecting my owl design one. But I do like how this came out.

The two pictures above are of the wallet I did for my sister's birthday.

This one is mine. I keep it in my purse.

This one I made for my swap partner in reducio!

So there are a few more things. But I will save them for another post.
