Well, it's been a long time...

And I have a lot to catch up on!

First, Bernie and I made an offer and bought a house! Yay! It's a lovely 4 bed/1.75 bathroom house. We have some plans for it, but are happy with the way things are right now. :)

Now for the knitting!

I did some test knitting for Emily Wessel of damp city knits! This is the Sunflower Shawl:

I knit is using Wollmeise 100% superwash sock.

I love it, and wear it like this the most, with the point in front and the tips falling down the front. These little shawlettes are like crack. You can't just knit one!

I've also been plugging away on my Featherweight as well. But, unfortunately I haven't remained faithful to it. :)

Bernie and I also adopted a stray cat that was hanging around our old house. Her name is Lola, and we love her. The other cats? Probably not so much. :)

I also finished up the Nordique Swing!

And knit a Liesl that still needs to be blocked.

I knit a Prairie Rose Lace shawl from the book "Knitters Book of Wool," and it's blocking now.

Hurry up and dry!

Current WIPs are a Percy Shawl using some Hazel Knits that I got at Sock Summit and a Lightweight Pullover using my blend of Yarnia. Will work on getting some pictures of those other than the skeins. :)

That's about it! I'll work harder on keeping this blog a little more up to date. If there's another break in regular blogging, check out my activity on Ravelry, I'm KnittingRN there, or with my podcast, The Anatomy of Knitting (find on iTunes!)
