Offline adventures...

Hello my lovely friends, how are we all today? 

The weather here is looking like a very yarn filled week will be on the cards. Pretty consistent rain and rather cool for summer days. 

I have just taken a little break away from home in which I decided to leave the computer behind and not even check mail etc for a week. I have to say it was a very wise decision. I think I should do it more often. With no distractions of various groups etc, no wanting to go shopping for yet more yarn because someone has just posted how cheap the latest spotlight sale is or no thinking about what homeschool activities we will attend because we don't even know about them yet.

So what did I do besides laze around lakes and beaches that were not my local ones? Well, I finally finished this.........

I still need to find some buttons for it but its all stitched up after a whole year of toting it around and forgetting it was even there at times. 

And, I even made a hat which I am not too happy with. It came out way smaller than it should have so will have to be for a small child. Easy enough to knit but I would have to go up a couple of needle sizes I think to get it to fit an adult. 

I got to thinking a lot about designing my own patterns and thought of quite a few ideas. Hoping I will find the time to get into that soon. I have so much to do around home though so not sure when that will eventuate. 

I have also been working on some crochet. But will save that for another day. Hope you are all well and happy. Hugs and smoochies xoxoxox

Love and Light 


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely break, Karisma, and some time off from the computer actually sounds refreshing :) I ought to do that too now and then.

    Your two knit projects look fabulous, both green colours are very pretty.
    Can't wait to see your crochet :)

  2. Lovely hat shame about the sizing. I . just knitted Heather a hat which A bigger girl tried on and stretched, and which an even bigger girl tried on and stretched again. Now I need to start a new hat.....
    Offline time is good, doing that a lot here lately, even closing up one blog...

  3. Wow you made some stunning things, the hat is gorgeous shame it came out smaller than expected though :(
    I look forward to see what you design.

  4. I so agree with you. Staying away from the computer certainly helps. Glad you had some down and me time and got things done.
