I’ve never written a blog before but this calls for drastic action. I’m Karen, thirty-four-years old and I live in Gloucestershire in the UK with my husband, our three-year-old daughter and an aged cat…. and I have a problem… my UFO (or ‘work in progress’) pile is getting seriously out of hand.
After a discussion on the forum a couple of weeks ago, I decided it needed tackling. I thought I’d try to finish one project at a time, ‘rewarding’ myself by knitting five squares…Continue
Thank you for your written words of encouragement! I gave this stitch a go and did manage one lizardy line - however, despite being an experienced knitter of some 40 years I just couldn't get my head around continuing on. I have appreciated opening my mind to it though thanks to your gorgeous example!
Thank you so much Karen :) Next week or the week thereafter I will join your mini Christmas challenge! xo
Hi Karen, I have sent pencil cases with metal zips and plastic zips and have had no pronlems. It was great to hear from Kathy P about the lovely day you all had. I was sorry Icouldn't be there but had a weekend planned away with friends at our holiday caravan in Norfolk. I also have various unfinished projects so you are not alone. I have just completed a jumper which I have been knitting since June and have several squares to finish off plus 3 scarves. Your cuddlies look sooo cute:)
Hi Karen, hope you are keeping well and I know you had a great time at the UK Big Day Out !
Would you mind adding your latest squares total to the 'Knit-a-Square Delivers' discussion. Your 47 squares will move the Van forward another 100 metres. Thanks so much ! Linda xx
Thank you so much Karen :) my work comes close to yours :))) Your work is sooo beautiful and neat! xo
Oh, Karen, I hadn't looked at the Sorted in South Africa thread for awhile. I'll go check now. I shipped two big packages about 3-4 weeks ago, so I guess they arrived and got opened. Thanks for the heads up. I always enjoy those photos, because there is so much to look at and marvel at.
Take care, and keep stitching.
Thank you, Karen :) Yes, again next year would be great. Being mini, it's just so relaxing. Challenging each other like that was really a lot of fun ... never knowing what you would get. Someone said it was like getting a surprise or a gift or something like that. I agree! I really enjoyed it. xo
Hi Karen, sorry for taking so long to respond to your friend request - I'd only been viewing the forum on my phone, so I didn't know how to 'accept'! (I've not totally got the hang of using the forum to be honest!) - Jo
