I'm back from an unexpected hiatus, I haven't been anywhere, just haven't had the will to post. Now that I'm on ravelry, I'm not sure if I should maintain the old blog. In one respect, I love blogging because it enables me to meet you folks that love knitting the way I do, on the other hand, I'm not a prolific writer and trying to think of what to say sometimes puts me off. If there's anyone out there that would like to share a blog, I'm up for that.
What have I been up to? Well work has been hectic and I'm still negotiating a new contract, so that's taken a lot of my time and energy. I have been knitting, which has allowed me to keep my sanity.
I've finished my monkey socks and a couple of these seaman caps.
Current works in progress:
I'm 1 1/2 sleeve away from finishing the hubby's sweater.
I've started started the tangled yoke sweater, unfortunately, I'm thinking of frogging because I really don't like knitting with silky wool.
Next up my new crafting hobby, quilting.
My most local yarn store is actually a quilting store and every time I shop for new yarn, the pretty fabric calls out to me. I finally succumbed and bought this cute mini purse kit.
After I finished it, I decided to try my hand at a baby quilt for my daughters best friend's baby. I've already signed up for classes so stay tuned for more progress.
Our biggest work in progress is this,
My hubby ripped up the carpet in the dining room and is putting down tile. Deadline is Tuesday, we are expecting 30 people for Thanksgiving dinner, wish us luck.
That's about it. Coming soon, a hugh stash sale.
