Has Anyone Seen Where My Craft Mojo Went?

So here I am, blogging again, albiet briefly.

The problem is I need photos to go with blog to explain what I have been doing. The next problem is my internet connection is sooooo slow here at home that it takes forever to post and because of that I can never motivate myself to do it. AND THEN, I ususally find a few minutes at work to post, but I have been sooooo busy (Having to work at work, whats that about?) and most of my fun projects are at home so again, lack of motivation to post.
What is a girl to do??

So this is it, a list of what I am working on, I will update with photos as soon as I can.

1. Bag for Brownpants. Made from Crocheted triangles. Yep, triangles! Made from Noro Kureyon, it is beautiful. I am trying to figure out what material to line it with, so this project is on a little hiatus.

2. Shawl 1, for my Mum. Forest Canopy shawl, I have posted a pic earlier about the beginnings, and am now finishing off body to start the finishing edging. Only problem I can foresee is having enough space to block it properly. This projected was due to be completed last weekend, but unforseen circumstances (BF moving to Perth) saw me lose my craft mojo. Now if I just could find where I put it........................

3. Shawl 2, another one! This one is for a friends birthday. I have done the first 16 rows, but have put it down to complete Shawl 1.

4. Headband. I have made two of these already using the Caloromitry pattern from latest issue of knitty. I had to modify it for the yarn Iam using (Jo Sharp Desert garden Aran) and have come up with two sizes, small and medium. If you want the instructions let me know, that is only if you dont want to do the math!

5. Shawl 3. For me! A friend was abit naughty and bought me 3 skeins of Cherry Tree Hill silk merino DK in Peacock. It was for a birthday present/thanks for looking after my cats present. I was floored (and extreeeeeeemly happy). It is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL yarn I have ever possessed. It is soft and yummy and will look stunning in a shawl. In fact I think I will have enough for a Clapotis scarf as well! I have done the first 16 rows of the pattern for the Forest Canopy Shawl, but have had to put it down to complete the many presents I have started (Damn!).

6. And finally, I am yet to start this, but have to cast it on over the weekend. A Cardigan for my Mum. It is for her Birthday and is a Jo Sharp short sleeved cardigan from her Knit 2 magazine. I am using Cascade Sierra in Dusky Rose for this project,and it will look beautiful!

And finally, for those of you whom I have talked to about my 2007 venture/adventure, I am sourcing product as we speak and will have items for testing by end of January/early February.

So as you can see, even though I have not been posting, I have been reading all your wonderful blogs and I have been crafting, and plotting about craft! Mwa ha ha hahahahaha!

it's really hard to reply to your comments when you don't have your email address visible Shazmina! LOL!

My friends and I joke about (s)crapbooking. Another friend calls in a 'less craft'.

Duh. I shouldn't be so keen to hit send.

I too could not reply to your comment, alas, no email! But here will work just fine. Thank you for the kind words. Oh and I LOVE the bag, can't wait to see it finished. What a clever use of Noro.
