Good evening gentleman,
Spent the day on the computer looking for a new job, tying up loose ends, and in general prepping for another big move as we head back westward from our little corner of Michigan. Spending this almost unprecedented time online today made me realize it would be a crime not to pop on over here. I have popped in now and then since I last posted but I haven't dropped a note on here in quite some time. If it helps, I didn't even do so on my own blog. I honestly haven't been spending much time online.
I have been knitting. I've been working on wrapping up some projects before this move just to say they're done and off my plate in an effort to not have to keep track of them. And I found a couple of really old projects I forgot about. Some of them got put back on the burner, and some got tore out and "re-visualized" as the case may be. If that happened to be seen as a trash can filler, so be it. Don't worry, somewhere in this very county is a sheep growing more wool right now. It's all good. Mainly I wrapped up Christmas knitting early so I could get it in the mail and not worry about losing it in the move. In fact I mailed it on Friday. Yes, there's a bit of self satisfaction in that comment, but more relief than anything. Don't worry, this is not a new pattern in my life, jus the typical doing well under pressure.
I attached a picture of the largest of the said Christmas projects which was a sweater for my nephew. I decided that I didn't have quite enough yarn for a project for myself and I wasn't crazy about the chartreuse after I got this yarn home. He is smaller and colorblind, so win-win, right? Sorry, no pattern, I couldn't find a pattern to fit the little beanpole so I made it up as I went. Here's hoping the dang thing fits. I actually made it a bit big in hopes he may get a whole year out of it if his father doesn't destroy it in the wash. Fingers crossed.
I hope you're all well.
