#5 - APOLOGIES

isn't it funny how summer has this way of speeding things up and slowing them down at the same time? life has felt really full right now - the days are so busy and hectic, exciting and tiring, and despite being stressed, i can't really complain. when i reflect, everything this season has been completely unexpected, but it seems that life is shifting on my own terms for once.

but what i really mean to say here is this - i am terribly sorry (to the 7 of you who actually read this) that i've turned out to be such a horribly inconsistent blogger/knitter/maker/do-er of things. i've come with the best of intentions. i realize that life will never slow down, but i will continue knitting and sewing and photographing and thinking about new things to create. i have some really big plans up my sleeves. that's the only promise i can keep.

with that, here is some of my undeniably slow progress on the yarn-front:

From Knitting, etc.

the springtime bandit is complete! this is probably my favorite FO thus far, for good reasons - this yarn is luxurious, the acid yellow color is perfect for the early spring, and it was a really fun pattern to knit.

From Knitting, etc.

i only had 4 skeins for this, so i had to cut out a few sections of the beautiful lace rows in the edging. oh right, and i have short hair now.

From Knitting, etc.

also working on the silk kerchief, also from kate of the fibre co. i love how the noro silk garden yarn is striping so perfectly. i'm on a triangular scarf kick, lately. this one will be excellent with blazers in the autumn, no?

From Knitting, etc.

i waited the longest time to get the perfect yarn for my clapotis! i love love love this yarn, and it was quite a splurge - impressionist regal silk in paris rain. i cannot wait to see how this piece turns out, but here's a peek at my progress.

there are a few other projects on the needles right now, but i'll save those for some FO photos. and i'll be back around these parts of the interweb more often, fingers crossed.
