Knitting - and panicking!

Oh goodness how many things there are on my to-do list right now...  This morning I woke up feeling that sudden lurch of panic at getting something, *anything* ticked off the list today.  At least I've finished the last of the Christmas knitting!

This is the Lavender Lace beanie from One Skein Wonders.  It's a little on the small side... needs a good block.  I'll add that to the list of things I want to get done...

As for reading, well, unless you count craft blogs for ideas to busy the excited little ones...!

Joining in with Ginny and friends again.  :)

    1. Aw sympathy haha, I have a pile of commissions still and really want to get them all done before January! And Talia may not get a Christmas knit this year, because I decided her current aversion to clothing wasn't worth fighting with so much else to do right now...

    1. This one way pretty easy - a fair bit of concentrating because I could visualise how the pattern was working! But it *was* quick, dk yarn and 5.5mm needles. :)

  3. Hi I just came across your blog today, and I have really enjoyed reading it. I am especially interested that you are unschooling with a Waldolf style, which is similar to what I try to do with my 4 children in New Zealand. Although to be honest I think our days are mostly just different forms of chaos... it's a bit of a journey.
    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, it really is very cool coming across someone with similar schooling ideas

    1. Hi, lovely to "meet" you! I have found a few Waldorf inspired unschoolers, like Suzy at A Soulful Life http://scrapsofstarlight.blogspot.co.uk/ and Laura at Roots and Wings http://phoebedot.blogspot.co.uk/ :)

    1. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lavender-lace-beanie Unfortunately the pattern is only sold as part of the book - but it is a *very* good book and often cheap second hand on Amazon. :)
