I’m Back ... A Catch Up Post

Where does one even begin when they have been gone for so long? A lot has happened since my last blog post in September and like many I know, and follow, I just decided to take a break from everything.

I stopped blogging and I stepped away from social media.  I closed my Facebook account a year ago and I my Instagram account the end of October.  I have found that I don’t miss it and have realized how many hours were wasted from me  aimlessly scrolling.  Those hours are now spent gardening, knitting, spinning and spending time with my husband.  I may go back on to Instagram, just to share what I have been up too, but not sure when.

Lots of knitting has been finished since my last post and I really don’t know where to begin but decided to post a few photos of finished pieces.

I finished my crocheted cardigan that I made in Noro Akari.  I decided to knit the front band and love how it turned out.  It’s so cozy and warm, perfect for Arizona winters!


Shortly after finishing my cardigan, I finished my
Miski Sweater, a free pattern from Mirisol, in Lion Brand Wool-Ease, color Riverside.  I should have made the medium size as it’s huge, but nevertheless I love it!




I also finished a Flax Sweater, a free pattern by Tin Can Knits,  that I absolutely love and it fits me so well!  This was made out of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Sunset Canyon.


I also finished several pairs of socks, two handspun hats, and a Musselburgh Hat.









As far as spinning is concerned, I finished a few braids from my stash, which makes me very happy!













So taking a break has been very productive for me and sometimes you just need to step away.  I plan to continue blogging, as it is the one thing I’ve truly missed!

Until next time, be creative!
Tina
