I received an email today from a friend who asked me if I'd "fallen off the blogwagon" since it's been so long since I've blogged, and basically, yes I had. But just because I've been missing from the blogosphere does not mean I haven't been knitting (and doing all the other crazy stuff I normally do). And so I figure since someone other than my mother is "reminding" me about my lack of blogging, it's time to get back on the blogwagon.
Now first, let me just say that there has been some stealth knitting going on. And because it's for a certain someone's birthday, it can't be shown here. It can however be seen on my Ravelry page for those of you who have received your invites. And for those of you who haven't, from what I've been reading on the Ravelry blog, it sounds as if you will be receiving your invites any time now, so hang in there! Anyway, so much for stealth knitting.
Also on the needles are the Sweet Pea Socks which is the first pattern to go out in the Hill Country Yarns Sock Club.
I'm actually quite a bit further than this pic (taken just earlier today) and am almost ready to bind off the first sock. Woohoo!
I also accidentally felted my Something Red made from a scrumptious brown merino/silk blend and will tell the entire tale when I can do so without sobbing.
This "Something Brown" (now called "Something Felted") was probably one of my favorite FO's (and yes, it was completely finished before I accidentally felted it) and was knit to be worn while I was at Stitches Midwest, but alas.... it wasn't meant to be. I loved this sweater so much though that I'm determined to make another one. Some day.
In other news, football season has begun once more and I'm down to a mere two games per week (Freshman football for Little Brother Football Star and Varsity for Cheerleader Daughter).
Fall must be just around the corner.... I can't wait.
