Still alive..

Aperture science, you do what you must because you can…

AS issued hot water bottle cosie anyone?

Or maybe you’re own turret?

But no one can say no to cake right?

And everyone needs a companion cube.

For those interested, generic hot water bottle cosie pattern with the Aperture Science logo worked into it via intersia. A little turret I created purely by just winging it. The legs are reinforced with wire ad green stuff. Cake was winged too, as was the Companion Cube, but I actually wrote the pattern for that one – you can find it in the free patterns section!

Anyhow!

Sorry for the huge hiatus (and all the photos are of old projects), between Felix’s first birthday, secret christmas knitting, starting a new job, travelling up north for a bit and back again, I’ve not had much time to go online.

That and I lost my camera somewhere along the way. So all the cool stuff I’ve been working on? No photos.

And knitting blog posts without photos are really rather dull and pointless.

This however, is one of those, but apart from the old knitting projects of mine as a bit of a compromise (at least they’re not posted here already), it has one juicy bit of info! I finally counted my wool – I received some as presents and acquired a few stashes, so was really dreading it, but after some serious stash busting (later post when I find my camera) I decided to take the risk and count.

There was only 747 balls of wool, not as bad as I feared!

But still, 747 balls of wool is a little on the large side. Ok. A lot on the large side seeing as it’s mostly providing insulation in my conservatory…

So for the next while I’m going to keep a running record on the coming and going of my wool stash – hopefully doing this publicly will guilt me out of buying ‘just one more ball/pack/colour lot…’

It should also encourage more posts and a better record of what I’ve been making – my Ravelry account is terribly behind!

    747?! Seriously Roxy, you could open a wool shop with that!

    Good to see you online again 🙂

      And that’s not including the scraps or odds and ends…

      Going to try and make an effort to stay online!

        Yep, 747 not including the rather large scraps and odds and ends box. Well, less now, but at that moment in time!
