A massive pun-dertaking

This week, I have no knitted projects to share. One is finished, but I haven’t had a chance to get a good photo of it, and I’m over 70% on phase one of another.

Yes, you are being pun-alised with statistics on my knitting progress.

I have been doing a lot of painting at the moment – painting minis not pictures – and finished all the My little Scythe minis. Have my next set already lined up, just need the time to work on them.

And time is were I am falling short. Full time work, full time mum around said work, running and maintaining the house, all my hobbies plus more social things like vikings and gaming. I don’t want to give anything up, each is pun-derful in it’s own way (apart from cleaning, that’s pun-ishment), but yeah… I may actually see through my threat of posting non knitting things on here far more regularly.

So, I pose a question, should I stick to soft crafts (knitting, tablet weave, needle felt, sewing, braiding) or a bit of everything (painting, carving, whatever random things I get into).

The other thing that as of today is now going to eat a lot of my time is I am going to be looking after a colleagues cat for 5/6 days (it’s easier for me to have the cat here than the 40 minute drive there and back when there’s no traffic, at least once a day, every day, over that period of time…) so the wool-servatory / tribble rehoming center is getting gutted. Carefully gutted. I am already creating piles of things to be rehomed to others, but I suspect my wool count is going to go up as I dig through mine and Engels mountains of hobby related items…

So with that, I shall leave you all be until next post.

Oh! Did you all enjoy the pun-derful puns? Or was it pun-ishment? Let me know if they have groan on you at least!

    I personally think you should post whatever takes your fancy at the time of your blog post, or whatever you think would be most interesting, not just a soft craft.

    Or whatever sparks the best puns to send us to the punitentiary!

    I love your life updates as much as your craft ones – even with the encyclopaedia of puns attached! I think it’s a pun-reasonable pressure to put on yourself for solely knitted things on your posts.
    Very much happy to see whatever you’ve been up to!

    Hope the kitty sitting goes well, I think having a special kitty suite in the conservatory is definitely a better plan than adding 2 or more hours to your day popping in to visit.
