It's Been A While

I didn't realize it had been so long since I have posted anything. It has been a busy couple of months. With what I don't really know, but it has been busy.

I am sitting here writing as the rain comes down. I love days like this, especially with the cooler weather. I love cold weather, bring it on.

I frogged my Ludivine, I just wasn't happy with it. I will most probably restart it in January or so. I am working on a sweater for my mom for Christmas. That is also a project that has had some changes. The measurements given were the finished measurements and not the bust size. I did go up a needle size and I think it will work out. I looked at the pattern, it is from Creative Knitting July and realized it would not be good for my Mom for winter. I will continue on it later and give it to her for her Birthday in May. I designed a simple sweater and got some yummy yarn from WEBs, I can't wait until it gets here. It is bulky weight so should knit up fast and be very warm.

This has to be my favorite time of year, although this years heat has made it a little uncomfortable.

I am continuing on my Multnomah using the Briar Rose yarn Louise gave me for my birthday, it should be so warm. Our Mt Airy Knitting group lost a dear and wonderful lady last Saturday, Becky Woodfield. She will be greatly missed.

I am slowly getting the Buttercup Top done, I usually only knit on it when I am out, so it is a little slow going. We all say we are going on a yarn diet and only use what is in our stash, but with so many yummy yarns out there how can we resist. I plan on going to Knitting tonight at Eleganza, what trouble will I get into there.

I guess that is about all I have for now. I promise to write more often.
