This is taking so long.

This knitting is nice, but it sure is taking me a long time to finish a project. I'm about halfway into the shrug I started. I'm really excited to get it seamed so I can knit with the circular needles. Ultimately I'm ready to have it seamed and finished so I can wear it!!! I'm not rushing though because it's already gotten much warmer here in Texas and I probably won't be wearing it until the fall. :(

Here's something that should be finished within the next couple of weeks, though.
It is going to be my first felted project. An awesome looking needle roll from here. I'm hoping to get this one finished as soon as possible so I won't get discouraged from knitting.

It's been too long...

I kinda forgot I was doing this. After our move back in September so many things have happened. I gave birth to our son on September 1st, then developed a breast infection 6 weeks later and had to have surgery to get it removed. After being traumatized by that and being depressed about not being able to breastfeed my son, here I am many months later. The new year has come and I'm in a much better place.

Over that time I have crocheted blankets, clothes, and even moved on to attempting to freehand many other things. Some came out disasterous, but I am learning. On the note of learning, I am currently learning to knit. It's not as hard as it seemed to be before. I am working on my first project from Caron, the Simple shrug. It may be a little more difficult than a beginning knitter would attemt to knit, but my first crochet project was a baby blanket.

Yeah, I like to jump right in!!!!
