Hi everyone,I was given the knitted animals book by Zoe Mellor.I knitted several snakes,the alligator and the turtle.Then I was asked to knit the turtle in a larger size{kinda like a big pillow}I knitted it after much calculating to get the proportions right.It was a great sucess as they raffled it off {where I volunteer}I am sorry I did not take pictures of all these animals that I knitted...its really too bad that there are not enough hours in the day to knit as all the other stuff {like cooking ,cleaning,etc,} gets in the way...do you ladies have any suggestion to stretch the day so we can do the fun stuff?...josie

Josie, We've all been trying to figure that one out. My DH does a lot of the house work - which definitely helps! But there are still not enough hours in a day. --S
Hi Susan,I do not know if you received my earlier e-mail { I think I hit the wrong button} I also have a husband who helps with the cooking.I do know that I work my complicated patterns in the morning {I am retired} but the easy knitting I do in the evening while watching TV.Don"t you find that you get satisfaction finishing a project?,whether it is for you or a gift for someone else.And its a great stress reliever...josie
Josie,
I'm not sure if I did, I'll go back and check. I also tend to do the more complicated early in the day, and the simpler things later in the day. Of course, I usually spin later in the day, because not as much concentration is needed. And absolutely yes, knitting is the best stress reliever that I know of. Not only do I get great satisfaction from finished a projects, it usually makes me want to cast on something new, and I have a long list of things I have waiting in the wings with deadlines - birthdays, special occasions, Christmas, etc. --S
The best I can do is knit in the wee bits of time I can snatch while, for example, standing in line at the post office. It does add up. Unfortunately, anything complicated often doesn't get done!
Hi Ruthmci,I just sent a message to Susan ,I also told her what I do ..Complicated patterns in the morning and easy knitting while watching tv{so am doing 2 things at once}...josie
Cleaning?
A couple of months ago at a guild meeting, one of the older ladies asked me how I got so much knitting done... then she said when do you do your cleaning... I said, "Cleaning?"... then she said, "Well, that explains it!" - I thought in a rather discussed tone... LOL. --S
What housework? Is anyone doing housework? Oh, well ............... ♥c
I'm not... I pay someone to do mine! --S
I eliminated all the little knick-knacks that I had in my house,you can clean house quickly so you can get to the fun stuff,i.e.knitting....josie
I've eliminated a lot of those... yeah!... but DH has some things he apparently cannot live without... LOL. --S
I totally understand his position! I can't live without my stash, my knitting accessories, my _______ [insert anything fiber related here]....... ♥c
