I'm still here

I've been neglecting my blog. I'm working up another pair of shorties in the Breezy pattern, it's a cable lace pattern. I haven't done cables in years. Needless to say, I had to frog several times until I got the hang of the pattern.

These are going to my sister in New Jersey. I'm using Risata Yarn by KnitPicks. Great cotton blend with a nice stretch.

Hubby is away on a business trip, giving me more time to concentrate and knit. My last shorties went to my daughter. They are Petunia shorties.

I've so busy finding my way around Ravelry that I've been neglecting my blog, yicks. I'm starting to feel more comfortable moving around the site and have finally figured out, with the help of many, how to add pictures to my posts. For someone who opposed computers so much when they first surfaced, I have become another computer junkie.

Well, I'm working on my fifth pair of socks in the color Petunia. The yarn is so soft, and these will be for my daughter. Now I really have to be committed to making socks, since I just joined a group where are going to promise to make one pair a month, and I have a partner looking over my shoulder. More motivation. Not a bad thing. My work in progress, better get my hands working, on a deadline.

So Excited

There is a really good chance that I will be working part-time in a lovely, quaint local knitting shop. I am so excited about this. To be able to go to work and do something I love and be able to help and teach others learn this beautiful craft is something I've always hoped to do.

Certainly, it's not for the money, and I feel blessed that I am in a position right now in my life that I can chose to do this. It will also be good for me to get out of the house and be in contact with new people and gather new and fresh ideas. I hope to start within the next two weeks. Will keep you posted.
