Projects

This year I had promised myself I would blog once a week with a mix of projects and interesting knitting related articles. Here it is fall and I haven’t been able to do that. I’m starting think getting it together isn’t possible. I have so much going on that I can’t seem to stay focused or set goals. You would think by the time you were middle aged you’d have it figured out, but nope, not me. It’s a weird time for me. I feel like I’m transitioning. I just not sure what I’m transitioning into. Thank goodness I have my fibre arts to keep me sane.

I’ve been weaving but I’ll save stuff about that for my next post. Today I wanted to share a photo of my final Kitchen Mat.  I was so happy to finish it just a few days before Thanksgiving (Canadian). Originally I was worried about it sliding but it’s so heavy it stays in place pretty well. Of course my dog, Patches thinks it great to smush up or to lay on.

 

Even though I love this mat I’m not sure I’d make it again. It uses a ton of cotton yard because it’s three strands held together. And it was hard to knit up the last (white) section because it  it weighs 3.5 lbs. On the upside I have some left over yarn to make matching dishcloths.
