My Hide Away
I have not done much knitting this year

I did two projects, both are hide aways..... below is the 2nd project..... Why I call it as Hide Aways as i can hide away all the cables as i knitted the side straps and back straps to hold onto the cables.....

Cute ideas!! BTW, I feel your pain. Having a career is throwing a wrench into my knitting time! Now I know why knitters are traditionally depicted as old ladies in rocking chairs...they're the only people who have a lot of time to knit!

Cool idea and lovely execution of it!

But I'm sorry to hear you're short on knitting time. I know how you feel. I'll be really busy for the next few weeks, so there will be very few knitting minutes in my day. Perhaps it will slow down later, but . . . sheesh! two weeks and no progress on all these projects I need to get done!

Of course, eating's nice, too! Sigh!
