Bounce! Bounce! Bounce!

I apologize for neglecting Fabulous Foot Friday. Last week was a crazy week and was not able to do my regularly scheduled blogging. Never fear! It will be back this week.

Now on to this post:

I chose the title for this post because it accurately describes my crafting. All I seem to do is bounce from one thing to another (well, mostly between sewing and knitting right now). Just a couple of weeks ago I was totally into sewing. I had about 5 projects that I wanted to complete ASAP. I finished one (VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! Terrible fit. Maybe someday I will stop being so tormented by the shirt I will take a picture and show it to you) sewing project and was ready to go directly on to the next. In fact, I have figured out exactly what adjustments need to be made to the pattern. That's been done for at least a week. Did I get right to adjusting the pattern, cutting out the fabric and sewing? NO!! I went to knitting. I was working on the sweater for my husband and did I finish that? NO!!! (In my defense I do not have enough yarn and am trying to find some so the drive is not there right now since I cannot really finish.) I started working on another sweater. I am now knitting the Silken Spencer by Kate Gilbert from the Fall 2006 Interweave Knits.
I love the grey and I have chosen navy blue as the contrast. The flowers will be burgundy. I am using Lousia Harding Kashmir DK and am LOVING the yarn. It is fabulous to knit with. So far I have the back contrast band and one front contrast band finished. They have been so quick to knit up. I am learning intarsia for this project. It has been fun learning this new skill.

Maybe I will be able to see this project through to completion before I bounce, bounce, bounce to something else. I am not so sure because I think I feel the sewing bug about to bite again.

Have a great day! Until next time...
