Aaren by Kim Hargreaves from her book Precious

I am not a one, two, even three project person. I am a multiple project person. When you are being sorely tempted, you are supposed to give in, right? So I started another project, one that has been calling to me for a very long time - since I had the yarn in stash (yarn that I have been trying to allocate for ages not knowing that THE perfect patern was right under my nose) I decided there was absolutely nothing preventing me from casting on.

Is definiely smouldering away. It's almost complete - almost. It's the almost bit that is currently kicking my butt. I'm sewing in ends. It's so tiring that I can only do a small amount at a time. I don't allow my son to use the B word (boring) so I won't use it here. But is so is. I know the end result will be glorious, which is why, rather than leave the ends loose as is my want I'm taking time to do it right. In the mean time.....

Smoulder still in almost state

My technical problems persist, I've borrowed a friend's power pack for a while so I can use my laptop without curtailing my normal activities - like spending 200 hours a day on Ravelry!!!

I have started this (the dress) and this . They are both so scrummy - I'm loving both of them, although I have some misgivings about Sylvi. I will continue and see what happens........

Oh the pain of a sick laptop. I have no power pack, its gone to PC essentials heaven. I am relying on my friend to come juice me up every few days until a new one gets here. Add to the mix another broken camera and it all fun in Johanne land!!
