A Return to BlogdomHi all. Long time no blog! I hope all your lives are happy and joyful full of knitting fun. My life for the past few months has included knitting (not as much as I would have liked!), reading (some of the reason for reduced knitting), playing with Eina (just turned 1 on the 9th) and Knuckles (who makes Eina jealous when we give him attention and talk to him in a high squeaky voice), hanging with the hubby (playful as always), and spending time with my sister (getting married next weekend and pregnant with my 1st neice/nephew due in November!) among other things.
Despite my flagrant disregard for my blogging responsibilities I have actually been getting close to finishing the Never-Ending Shawl. I had somehow made a miscalculation in the amount of yarn I would need when I substituted the Knitpicks Gossamer for the Cherry Hill Tree Farm yarn and ran out when I was 3/4 of the way done with the ruffle edge. I recently received the new hank in the mail (yes, the colors aren't different!!) and have set to work completing the edge. Sweater for my husband is completed minus blocking and seaming. That will happen after I remember what substitute I can get from Home Depot that will serve as blocking wires so I can spend only $5 as opposed to $40 buying them from a yarn store. I have accepted the fact that neither the shawl nor the sweater will be worn until this coming fall/winter. I suppose that gives me time to make a matching sweater for the dog (husband's idea was to make the dog a sweater; my idea was to make the dog sweater match the husband sweater. Ha!) and some baby clothes for my sister's baby.
Until next time...
Have a Knitlicious day!
