What I've been doing

I haven't had a while lot of knitting inspriation. I have been knitting baby hats for my cousin and swifter covers for te house. I also have a few small projects that I've been working on.

Though yesterday I picked up my spindle. I do enjoy spinning. I am looking forward to getting better at it as time goes on. I am excited to try plying also

I have no idea about what this roving is made of. I foud it I the stash room at the knitters review retreat. It was quite a find.

What I've been up to

Hey all,

Well life has been a bit hectic lately. I unfortunately have not had a chance to focus on any big knitting projects. I am focusing on a few other things in my life right now, and that means that it is simple knitting projects. For instance.

1. New House: Trying to get everything in order and fabulous.
2. Focus: I have been having a lot of trouble focusing at work, that being said I have tried to make some lifestyle changes to help with that. These changes include no caffine after my morning coffee (have you met me, i tend to have diet coke in my hand at all times) also no sugar during the day. Yeah. I also love sweets.
3. Food choices: I am not one who is known for eating well. Let's face it, I eat for crap. I love fast food, I love junk food, and in general I love food. I am hoping that this summer I can REALLY get into some better eating habits. Making lunch and eating breakfast really helps, but it is really tough. To some people, good food choices comes naturally. Not so much for me.
4. Being a bit greener: Taking a not from nutmegknitter I am trying to be a bit more green. I am trying to re-use daily items rather than toss things away willy nilly.

This brings my next knitting project, swifter covers.

It's nothing fancy. Just some kitchen cotton (stash busting) and I used the Baby Genius Burp Cloth from Mason Dixon.

In general, things are great. I am looking forward to getting my yarn organized and in it's bins. The yarn is still boxed because I would like to complete this organization all at one time.

Well, that's pretty much it for me.
How about you?
