Finals are finally over and now the only thing between me and graduation is the completion of my final thesis draft. I've been under a huge amount of pressure and haven't really had time to spend on crafting for the last few weeks. So, for the next few days I've decided to have a mini craft retreat where I get to spend as much time as I want to on my various projects.
I have so much I want to do! I feel like there is a whole host of ideas that has been piling up in my head for a long time and now they all want out at once. I decided that I really need to start a fiber art journal (about time!).
I started by planning for some colorwork pillows I want to knit for my first apartment:
Next I reevaluated my WIPs, one project in particular was bothering me, a sweater in a Vogue Knitting pattern that has so many mistakes and frustrating sections that I was having doubts that it would be worth my time:
So, I frogged the silly thing carefully (this is the second time I have frogged this yarn and the cotton/silk blend is not holding up very well...):
After some clicking around on Ravelry, I found a new pattern that I think will work much better (Gaia by Kristen TenDyke) and cast on feeling much more confident.
Now for the rest of the day I'm going to spin some lovely Targhee wool and relax!
If you could have a craft centered week without distractions, what would you do with it?
