Nearly a month gone.

Hi, I didn't realize how long I've been away from the blog world. I've had busy times, not drawing and painting but knitting and "hooking".

Happy new year, by the way. I'm not the kind of person to pick a word for the year or to have fully planned what I'll do coming year, but some weeks ago a term fell into my head and stayed there. Just do it! As I thought about it for awhile it became clear to me that I would choose that term  as a guide for 2014.
It all started in the week between Christmas and New Year, I had to do something so I started a pair of socks. From there it grew, now I have so many projects going and many in queue that I start wondering if I'll ever do anything else.

At a certain point my brothers wife asked me to crochet her a tunic, and so I did. She didn't have a written pattern, but she showed me a pic from internet.

We also have a little girl in our family that I didn't give anything for her birth, now I've made her a coat and hat. I hope it will suit a one year old, she will turn one late summer.

While working on the coat, several new ideas fell into my head, and below is one of them. A cowl and matching wrist warmers.

In addition I have a skirt on my needles and a baby blanket going as well, and many more ideas in my head. Well, it normally comes to an end by itself, so I'll just see how far it goes this time. I have my class in February so at least I'll have to start painting then. Now, I have a lot of catching up to do, so I'll come visiting your blogs as well.


  1. Wow, Laila, super projects! You are one talented lady! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with in Twinks 2! I will be back as well! See you then!

  2. It's good to see you blogging again. You certainly have a lot of projects going. I like your thought for the year...just do it! I think that might be what I do, too. I've not been doing a lot of art so far but I've been busy with other projects. I decided to just get started with some things that have been needing attention.

  3. wow those projects are beautiful I wish I could crochet no talent in that area
