I've missed being around!

Wow, it feels like it's been forever since I've been on the site. What little spare time I've had, I've spent knitting. If I don't get to knit at least some each day, I get very grumpy! The flip side is that I've missed you guys and staying on top of what everyone's doing.

I finally finished David's clogs - he got them a month late. I've also finished my first sweater and pair of socks. No pictures of them yet, but I will post them once I get some taken.

I now have going my first sweater done in the round -- no seams, yeah! For the sleeves, I'm using the magic loop method for the first time instead of DPNs. I think I like DPNs better, but with the Knit Pick options needles and cables, it just made sense to try magic loop first and it's going well. I also have my second pair of socks going and I'm about to finish a baby cuddle toy for my niece. For Christmas, I'm going to try really hard to restart and finish the Orangutan to give my nephew and get a stocking cap knit for my brother.

I've hooked up with a knitting group that meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings of each month. It's small and I'm the only guy. I really enjoy it and I've learned from the women in it.

I hope everyone is well -- Happy Thanksgiving to all the guys in the US!

Warren Teachout, it is about time you showed that handsome face again around here! You listen here, we gotta promise not to be so silent for so long so email me with what's been going on in your life and I will promise to do the same. So don't make me drive up there and find out first hand! (perhaps that wouldn't be a bad idea)hmmmm

Hmm, you driving up here, that could be interesting! I agree about that promise. Look for an email, soon!
