For the record, I do remember that I started this blog mainly to talk about, as well as show, my knitting. Being me though, it also included everything else, because I am a slow knitter, and I like to write. But I still refer to it as "my knitting blog," and in that vein, I think you deserve to know what is going on with my knitting.
The short answer: Not a lot. I'm enjoying looking at yarns, reading magazines and books with new patterns, and thinking in my head about what I want to knit. But actual knitting is no happening all that often. For the most part, it's been due to my arthritis. For a month or so, it was bothering me so much, I could barely hold the needles for five minutes at a time. Fortunately, things have improved as far as that goes. And I *do* knit, I just haven't made tons of progress on anything.
Having said that, I know you would like some pictures, so here we go. Remember this post? Well, nothing new has been cast-on (probably a good thing), but some changes have occurred.
First up, my Breezy Turquoise. When last discussed, I was nearly finished with the raglan shaping. Well, I did [finally] finish that, and have made it as far as the shaping under the arms:
What can I say? Slow and steady is apparently the only thing that is winning this race. Fortunately, spring and summer come around every year.
Next, I had signed up for the Second Quarter KAL in the Sexy Knitter Ravelry group, and had started with the Crosswaves Socks pattern. Well, that was just too much for my brain at the time, so I moved on to the Cirque Socks. Turned out, that wasn't gonna happen either. So I quit the KAL and decided I would just knit another pair of Hedgerow Socks. I'd knit a pair a couple of years ago for a gift, and really liked the way they turned out. So now this is yet another start:
Actually, I'm a little bit past this point. And I'm actually enjoying this time around, which is what it should be all about, right?
As for the Delaware River Waves scarf, it still looks just the same:
I'm trying hard to focus on the sweater and the pair of socks, so it hasn't gotten much love lately. But it's happily and loyally waiting its turn.
Such is my knitting. You?
