I like to move it move it...

Actually I had totally forgotten how time and energy consuming moving house is! Especially with a full time job - trying to get things done in the 3 or 4 hours between getting home and falling asleep on the sofa is really hard. The last shipment of my belongings will be arriving next weekend so by the end of the month I hope to be settled in with all my things in their proper place and be able to spend my time making and doing again but for now I'm living in a world of ironing and cleaning.

I always find that when I've got the least amount of time to get anything done, my brain is flooded with ideas and my hands are itching to pick up some sewing or knitting. Actually the knitting is going really well. I have been wanting to share some pictures here for a while but just haven't got round to it. Hang on, I'm going to take one now...



I know this is a terrible iphone photo but I just wanted to prove that this does exist. I've been knitting the border for this shawl on the bus journey to and from work which adds up to about 2 hours a day. It's good to see it coming together now and it also feels nice to use those little 'dead' parts of the day creatively. I'm definitely one of those people who has to feel the pressure in order to work at their best. When I've had periods of time with nothing to do in the past I've never made the most of them like I thought I would.

Once I'm settled in my new place I'm looking forward to spending this autumn knitting the shawl, finishing the dress I began at the start of the summer, making home made Christmas decorations and Christmas cake!
