Oops, I'm a little behind

It appears I've missed a couple updates. I'm just going to go ahead and pretend it's because my life is super fabulous, exciting, and terribly busy lately...

St. Patrick's Day has come and gone, and while we didn't have our trip to Boston as we'd have liked (BOO!), we did have fun. My best friend's birthday is St. Patrick's Day, so we found a place for a bunch of us to gather, that surprisingly wasn't insanely busy (like most places are in Toronto on St. Pats).

Despite it not being as busy as we expected, it was very loud. Talking over the noise of the crowd and the music caused me to lose my voice for a few days, which was entertaining in itself.

As far as crafting goes, I've been all over the place. I've had days where I needed to work on ALL THE THINGS, and days where I want to do nothing at all. I think it's all part of the HPKCHC end of term burnout. Rather than getting myself worked up over the things I haven't finished, I've been reassessing my crafting goals and needs (summer is coming and new clothes must be made!). In doing so, I think I've come up with a new, and totally doable plan of action, at least for the month of April. Oh, and I spent a lot of time re-vamping my blog. Looks pretty, n'est-ce pas?

What have I finished lately? Well, let me show you:

It's not as much as I'd normally have done over a 2 week period, but that's because of both the crafting ADD (the WIP pile is insane) and the days where I just didn't feel like doing anything.

The plan for this week? Hopefully I'll be turning the yarn shown below into a cute baby sweater.

Have a great week!


  1. Like the look of your sloucy hat. St. Paddy's day must be a fun day to have a birthday, a double celebration and all. Goodness it must have been beyond loud to loose your voice. I dislike places like that. I'm too old for it. Your blog looks very young and hip.

  2. Yay! A Jayne hat. They are so much fun.

  3. I love your finishes and over a two week period I think its still a lot and you have some lovely finishes.

  4. Lately I keep working on things and then ripping out, so at least you're actually producing things. I'm going to try to block some time to finish my vest - that'll clear the decks for some new things I think!

  5. You've been cranking out hats like mad! I love the new yarn you are turning into a baby sweater!

  6. Adorable hats--and that green yarn? Fun, fun, fun!
