Yes, once again it's time for Tuesday's Tally from my One a Day group on Ravelry. So without further ado, here is my progress to date:

I now have 57 squares but my progress has been slowed down by several knitting projects that need to be finished. I finished one of those last night, but haven't blocked it yet and I need to make a start on another one this evening to get it done asap so I can begin a test knit of a lovely summer dress that I will hopefully have finished for Tess's 4th birthday early in November.

I also have a list a mile long of projects I need to get done in the next couple of months, so I need to get cracking and pick up the pace a little!

I must also resist the urge to begin any other non-essential projects. After reading Attic 24's and Little Tin Bird's blogs today, I'm itching to start either a granny stripe blanket or a ripple blanket. I do need to start one for Izzy, but must resist until I have finished all the projects on my 'must do' list!

It's school holidays right now and this is the first time since before Tessa was born that I need to juggle working during the day and child care - and I had totally forgotten what a hassle it can be! Luckily I have great friends and a wonderful mother-in-law who have stepped in and are helping out. Also Kim will be taking some leave, along with me taking a few hours leave as well. I only work 3 hours a day, four days a week - who'd have thought it would have such an impact!

Right, I'd best get back to all these projects if I have any hope of getting them done!


  1. I know the feeling way to many projects to complete and not enough time. Your one a day is coming along really nicely and they are such beautiful colours. xx

  2. Your blanket is looking great, excellent progress! I know how you feel I always have so many projects on the go and start on just one more...


Thanks for leaving a comment - I love reading them!
