Crafty Rantings

I'm Crafty. I Rant. These are Crafty Rantings!

I am on vacation for two weeks so I probably won't have anything crafty to post about until I get back. I will be home on the 18th and then concentrating on moving so forgive me if this blog lacks postings for a while.

Looking forward to hitting up Spinning Yarns in Dover, NH because she always has some nice yarn. Besides, I think I am close to filling up her "saver" card by now. hehehe And I'm going to be looking for something special for my dear, wonderful, special friend Kaylee. No peeking Kaylee! :)

Hope everyone stays well while I'm gone.

Knit, crochet, enjoy, breathe!

More NH Gifts

I don't know how many pictures I can put in this post but here's some to get started:

So on the left is a "C" for my mom's best friend Cecile. On the right is a "J" for my mom (her name is Joann). I love the way mom's turned out. I am going to make an "L" for me in that shade of pink.

I fell in love with the pattern and the way the colors pool after I made this for my mother and just HAD to make one for me.
I also made a couple of cute washcloths in a beautiful variegated blue (I've made things in that color cotten before) but forgot to take pictures. And since they're wrapped and in a box on their way to NH, no pictures until I get there.
I am taking a few patterns with me, some needles and some yarn but not too much. I won't have a lot of time to knit probably. But I am going to try to get a bunch of things done because once I get back from vacation, I will have to limit myself to one project at a time because my stash, needles and "notions" are either going to be packed up temporarily or permanently. I need to concentrate on finding a place to live and storage that I can afford for the size I need (still unknown). Life will be very stressful for me probably until the beginning of the year, at least. I may not be giving people handmade items for Christmas unless I already have it done before the middle of November. So if you were hoping for a handmade present, please don't be disappointed if you don't get one.
Thank you to my supportive and understanding friends. I may not be posting much or crafting much but in my heart and mind, I'm working on a crafting project. And I will try not to have to give it up completely for the next couple of months. It's soothing and helps keep me even emotionally. If I can post during vacation I will but don't count on too many posts for an indefinite period of time.
Keep knitting and crocheting! And know I'm still ranting. I think. :)
