I really do fail miserably at this blogging thing! Life has just been really hectic the last few months, to say the least. so…where did we leave off?
Ah! January. Well, I met most of my resolution. I finished the swallowtail shawl.
And I completed the log cabin socks for my Texan friend. I am sure he loved getting them in april. :)
I finished my blackrose socks, but have no finished picture. Just trust me, they look and wear awesomely. In addition, they accidentally went through the washer and dryer, with no damage! This had me worried, since I am pretty sure Claudia Hand Paint sock yarn isn’t technically listed as machine washable.
The big accomplishment though? ARWEN IS DONE!! At a year and a half in the making, this is a huge accomplishment. I wore it every day for at least a week. I am a little sad it’s too warm to wear it now.
Avalon got put into time out for having different dye lots- I have already ripped it back 3 times, and just was NOT in the mood to do it a fourth for now.
I haven’t been blogging for a variety of reasons. first, work was pretty busy the first part of this year, wrapping up projects and kicking off new ones, which meant that by the end of the day I really didn’t feel like blogging again. In march, I found out my SO is being sent overseas for a year, leaving mid-June. Dealing with that and all the drama associated has kept me reasonably distracted from blogging and knitting too, unfortunately.
I have also been working on a stealth project. The item is done, but won’t be revealed for a few more months. Trust me though, it’s worth it!
I have been spinning a bit more lately- finished another roving from Christine Marie Potter. Her stuff is gorgeous, and I love working with it! This is her Snow White colorway, in corriedale. I spun about 400yds of navajo plied light worsted weight yarn.
I promise to be back later this week to share stories of this year’s MDSW, and honor my 1 year of blogging! (infrequently. but hey, it’s better than never, right?)
