I cannot believe how long it's taken me to get back here to the blog! One of those reasons, of course, is that Facebook takes up a lot of my time...and is easy to just float around on and lose track of time, too. The other is that this fall was really busy, with 3 small shows for Nana Sadie Rose in September, a two day show in November, and then in my REAL job I had two business trips in October. Then add in the holidays and the annual audit in my real job, and it just has seemed as if life is speeding up for me, tho' I'm hopeful that's mostly in the past now.
I've been knitting tho'. So I have a few things to share. I can't put them in order, I don't think, because I've just been getting them up on Ravelry (at least I do stop in there once in awhile!), and that's where you'll find the order of everything as well as the details. But here are a few photos of the finished items this 2015 that haven't already made it to the blog:
My Noro Yoga Socks. I'm hoping to jump back into yoga in January, so these will get some use finally!
My purple and brown tweedy fall socks took a lot longer to knit that usual, because of these:
I made two trips to DC via train, and these were my travel companions.
This was a contribution to our annual NoSoKnit charity event. It's Mousseaux. I loved knitting it - and it went fast. Too fast, actually because I pushed it and cause some tendinitis in my left hand that I've been struggling with ever since.
And my peek a boo mitts. I'm not sure I'll get to wear these. This has been a ridiculously mild winter - with temps in the 70s over the holiday. I'm hoping we'll at least get a bit of snow this year, but...who knows?
Unhappily, a colleague has needed a chemo cap and I was happy to provide it, but not happy at all that it was needed. I enjoyed seeing her face, tho' when she put it on. She's been wearing it ever since. ;)
So as you can see, I've been knitting. I'm working on another charity shawl that the yarn was donated for. I'm hoping it will be finished in 2015 (3 months before the deadline!), and I really think it will because I've only got a few more rows and the bindoff. Then blocking. I'm off till after the first of the year, so there should be no trouble getting that done!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, I did. Very glad to see this year come to a close, and have so many plans for 2016. I'll be back with my "One Word" (which is actually two) for 2016 post, along with some of the plans I'm putting together. And I PROMISE - one of them is to do a better job of posting here on the blog...tell your friends - those who used to stop by, okay? I hope to see everyone back again!
