#10 It’s getting cold over here

Hi everyone 🙂

#29cFinally a knitting post. It has been a while since I last posted I know. As an exchange student it is harder to find the time to sit down and knit when there is so much stuff out there to explore (besides uni work). In Australia the seasons are reversed, as so we are now going in to winter. It is beautiful, with all the leaves turning colour and falling down, yet the breeze is getting colder and you have to wear an extra layer at night. In my excitedness to come here I did not pack a scarf – the perfect excuse to knit myself another shawl. Finally, after a month, I have completed the Ashton shawl (which can be found on ravelry).

#29bI love the colour of this scarf. If you go through all my previous posts, it becomes clear that I do not often work with green, mainly because green is not my favourite colour. I decided to give it a try, switch things up a little, and I love the result. I think I will be wearing this one around a lot!

#29aI have not had a chance to block this scarf, seeing as I really don’t know how to. The scarf if for my own use, and when I wear it like in the picture you really can’t tell that the edge curls up. Perhaps when I get back home I will invest in a couple of wires and block it out. But until then I will love wearing it as it is.

Have a nice day everyone! xx

SOS ravelry queue

Hi everyone 🙂

I know it’s not Tuesday yet, but I have come to a discovery – MY RAVELRY QUEUE IS WAY TO LONG!! I should not have been surprised, I know that I continuously add to the list, but at 118 items I fear that I will never be able to do them all. So now, I have decided that I must decrease my list to at least 110 items and then MAYBE I can allow myself to add another item or two. I just felt that I should write my resolution down and make a post about it, so that it appears more legit. Hopefully I can keep myself to the resolution and tone down the craziness a little bit … for now. 

Does anyone else have a crazy long ravelry queue? There are just so many lovely patterns out there, it’s so tempting!
