That is going to be a beautiful pair of socks when you are done! I set a goal for some knitting last night and promptly fell asleep. whoops!


Ah Christmas knitting. I haven't made a list yet - they might just all get scarves again! Nice to hear your life is coming back into balance - I know what you mean.


My ravelry queue is rediculous! I definitely have high ambitions, but I definitely not the time and patience needed.


Ah but imagine the sad day when there was no new pattern you fancied! Glad things at home are working out well. Re Handknit Hols your comment made me smile as I had looked over the book again after my last post and thought oooh look at those stockings, can't believe I missed them the first time :o)

I've been at home for a year- deferred maternity leave from 18 years ago. I used to worry that I had no career ambitions, just a string of jobs, but I am at peace with it now. It gives me more time to plan knitting projects. (and I can attest to the fact that mat leave is way better when the kid is grown and working fulltime.)


Hmmmm, looks to be a Jaywalker, I'm thinking... Gorgeous!
Glad life is settling in and you're getting into the rhythm of being at home with family...except for Knitnight! ;^)

...ahem...I was just over to Faren's...noticed your comment, you've never had any Koigu yarn? seriously.


Glad to hear that things are working out for you on the home front. I also have too many things I want to knit, that I have had to re-set my wish to knit list, delete some older wishes to add new ones. But the list is still too long for my life time :)


Lovely start to your Jaywalkers! I'm glad that your staying home is working so well for you. For several years I had worked multiple jobs, and one year we decided I wouldn't anymore. I soooo enjoy my time at home now, but I remember what it was like when I first made the change. What a strange feeling.

I have the same problem with Ravelry!


Your new sock does look like a Jaywalker, but I've also seen some very similiar patterns online lately. Still, a Jaywalker by any other name would smell as sweet.


I see another pretty pair of socks in your future. :)

I'm glad you enjoy your new work at home.


Oh they are lovely socks:)
I know what you mean about the never ending list of 'must knits' ; mine is way too long, plus all I want to spin as well !!
As yet I still haven't had the time to add my stash to Ravelry and I think I am in for shock when I do LOL


Man, there are still over 600 people ahead of me on Ravelry! Of course, there are 20,000 behind me...


Yes, my list of "to knit" definitely is longer than my list of completed knitting projects. I'm ashamed to admit that my stash is larger than all my completed knitting projects.

I'm looking forward to seeing that Wizard Robe! I want to make Molly's Housecoat, but that would involve buying more yarn, and I really have NO space for any more yarn right now!


I just received my Ravelry invite today, so I'll have to take a serious & honest look at my stash :P I actually dipped into it this week...then ordered 2 more skeins *sigh*


I don't seem to have got much knitting done all week, and my sad little wheels have been treadled but no spinning has been done, too much remodelling going on in this house at the moment, such a drag, but that little sock is a lovely Charity!


I have that same colourway in Austermann, I really like how the sock is progressing. Hmmm. Perhaps I ought to give sock knitting another whack.

It really is so nice to know that you don't have to go anywhere and it's even nicer when the daytime baby fits in well with yours.


I'm glad to hear that your new routine is working out well! That is a gorgeous colorway for your socks.

I just had a look at my "Want to knit" queue and almost fell from my chair! I think I'll have to live forever, yes, I really have to ;)))
