OK, so I suck...

at keeping up to date with this blog. Seems even once a week is a stretch at the moment. But you know what, that's OK. It means I am super busy in my real life and whilst that can make me a bit frazzled I do love being busy :)

I have managed a bit of dyeing recently, with some help from the creative artist (aged 4).

This one is eerily similar to another one Ned dyed earlier and it is thus called "Neds Rainbow #2
Needs rewinding after a bit of a tangle

These are actually 2 x 100g BWM Luxury destined to be a hoodie for the 2yo along with matching pale pink trim.

I've currently got around 3 things on the needles including a soaker for a knit along, am about to sign up for a Tikki knit along in Nov, have offered to knit a test for amazing knitter Shannon, and have a 5 point list of Christmas related crafts in an EB Christmas Craft along. It is likely I have bitten off more than I can chew but as long as I get half the things on my list done I'll be happy. Like I said, I love being busy :)

Blogtoberfest

Yes, it is the time of the year when bloggers dedicate a whole month of blogging every day. Never fear, I lack the blogging stamina to be able to blog every day. Not to mention how ridiculously busy October is in general for me (see bottom of this post). I will however, try and blog at least once a week. Going to be hard though as all my cameras are out of action so I won't have any pics until I sort something out...new camera perhaps?

So what about craft? Time for it is seriously lacking at the moment I am afraid. I am able to knit a few things here and there at night (lucky as I am making a present at the moment). Sewing time is the most limited and I try and do it whenever I get 5 mins to spare. I am making some boy dolls for a school craft fair this month with one down and four to go at this stage, so they are my "sewing priority". Here are a few knits I've done over the last couple of months though so you can see I haven't been entirely deprived ;)

So why am I so busy? It is Reusable Nappy Week this Month (11th-17th). As National Coordinator again this year it means making sure all the State Coordinators are finalising all their events and helping them with any last minute preparations. Plus attending the Sydney events during the week itself. Add a public holiday at the beginning of the month, birthdays, meeting up with old friends and a trip away and it makes for a pretty full month. "See" you again next week.
