I don't know about you lovely people, but social commitment wise, 2012 has got off to a roaring start for me. As nice as this is, it's left me with a pitiful amount of time to stitch and all I keep thinking is: thank goodness I didn't sign up to The Sew Weekly! Hats off to every single contributor...I have no idea how they do it!
Ridiculously, I've got a handful of sewing projects on the go, all at various stages of completion. I need to focus more!

In knitting news, last week I started a follow up course to the beginner’s one I took last October. Ironically, we addressed gauge and tension issues in the first lesson and I appeared immensely knowledgeable after all your brilliant answers to this post. Thank you all!
I can now also reveal that one of my three (I seem to like doing things in threes) current knitting projects, is the oh-so-cute Adeline cardigan – a Ravelry freebie.
I'm knitting it up in Patons Dew, because I was attracted to the wonderful colours of the Ocean colourway. It's so fresh and reminds me of crashing waves. Adeline will definitely hugely challenge my current skills, so it will take me forever to finish, but I'm in no real hurry. Some things are worth taking your time over!
Is anyone else finding January stupidly busy, or are you all getting plenty of stitching time in?
P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already done so – it closes on Friday!
