Too busy to write

Necessary family matters have been taking up much of my time recently. By the time I've spent up to seven hours driving in a day, I don't rather want to do anything that involves thought. I also haven't made much preparations towards Christmas, such as writing any Christmas cards, or buying much in the way of presents.

I did manage to do some knitting for two presents, and I am working on my third. They are all fast knits, not at all complicated, but on the off-chance any of the potential recipients are reading this, I won't show you them.

two balls of yarn and two strands of blueInstead, here are the leftovers from one project - the grey and the red - plus two strands to show the colour of the other project. This does count as partly stashbusting, I've decided that I have used by two balls of wool while making them. They were Debbie Bliss Merino Aran - the gray, which although a nice enough wool seemed very splitty. The red is a 4-ply Yorkshire Tweed from Rowan (used double) and it was much nicer to work with.

I love the beautiful pink yarn. I am sure your projects will be A++!

I understand about not having any time. I am off for 2 weeks now, but I am so exhausted I am not getting much done.

I found that some Debbie Bliss yarns split very easily as well. Really didn't like working with one, unfortunately I can't remember what it was now, so I will doubtless end up doing it again!
