So things have been a bit crazy around here lately. There are boxes EVERYwhere and we've been working hard to pack up our things and get organized before the move, so unfortunately there hasn't been much knitting time in the past few weeks. (I didn't realize I owned so many books! I have two full boxes to donate to the library and there are still several boxes that will be coming with us. One entire box is full of knitting books - no surprise there!) Plus, our current apartment is being shown to potential renters, so I've been running around trying to make sure things are nice and clean so that someone will want to rent our place!
I'm almost done with the bobble sheep pillow. Just one more leg to go! Although I enjoy the idea of the sheep pillow, I will say that picking up the stitches for the head and the ears was extremely fiddly and time consuming. If you ever decide to try it, do your fingers a favor and use a crochet hook to make picking up the stitches a little easier.
I'm trying to finish all of my WIPs that have been languishing on the needles while I was distracted by prettier, more interesting projects. The less things I have to move (especially things with tiny, unattached pieces), the better. This also means no more yarn purchases until we're settled in our new place - even though I'm dying to knit the Regatta Tee by Olga Casey that's featured on the cover of the current issue of Interweave Knits. It's the perfect summery knit - nice and light but also something that I could pair with a cute jacket or cardigan for work.
Anyway, I'll be back soon (hopefully) with a FO to share. I need to start crossing some things off my list!
