Hello again, and a men's vest report

Wow, it's been a long time since I've really spent time on here. Life happens. But don't worry; it's been good.

Actually, I met a nice guy, mostly due to knitting! That was back around Maryland Sheep and Wool. This weekend just past, we got to attend Rhinebeck together, and had a lovely time- kinda like a fiber-festival anniversary. We even reenacted our meeting in the Sanguine Gryphon yarn booth, haha! The fiber folk there were so wonderful and supportive of us as a couple, and I am very grateful for that.

I just finished a vest in time to wear at the festival, and figure it's one you guys might want to see, if you haven't already.

You did a great job on that vest! I'm still envious, and I'm moving that up in my project queue.

I hope you enjoyed Saratoga. Its gorgeous any time of year but I think more so in the fall.

Congratulations, Willy. On both accounts. Good to see you again. Take care.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Thanks, guys! It's nice to be back here, and I'm really pleased with the vest. I figured someone might want to knit it at some point.
