I'm Still Here!

Well, I didn't mean to disappear briefly, but I realize that it happened anyway. But no worries, I'm still here and making an effort to keep up with everyone's blogs, whether or not I comment.

Anyhoo, I hope all of you are doing OK, or better than OK. I've been busy with a lot of stupid but necessary things, but I've also been knitting. Over the past weekend, I finished the socks I've been working on (FO post to come), and that was a good feeling. 

But I also finished the body of the cardigan I have been knitting since last year. You may recall that I put it aside at the end of the spring since I didn't want a lapful of wool during the summer. Then once fall hit, I got busy with gift knits. So I finally pulled it out at the beginning of January, and over the past weekend, I finished the bottom ribbing. It was such a sense of accomplishment!

Here's the front (though I realize it's hard to see well in this photo):

And in the interest of full disclosure, the back:

And I'm also excited today, because the beret I knit as a sample for the yarn store is featured in today's Instagram post! Here is the link, if you want to see a much better photo than the one I showed you. 😊

So that's the latest from here for now. I think I'll fix myself a cup of tea and read for a bit. I'm not working today because I have two dr appts. One is already over and the other is this afternoon, so I can have a little time to myself.

I hope the rest of your day goes well.

Life is just full of stupid necessary things, isn't it?
Cardigan is looking great!

The beret is very cute.

I think I'm going to have to buy that yarn. It looks so yummy!

So glad to see you pop in for a little catch-up! I love to see all your knitting, Bridget! XO

How exciting! I am always looking for more knitting content on Instagram so I'm happy to now be a follower. Berets are such a thing now. I've knit a few in my time but I have no idea where they are. I do recall a really pretty pink mohair one once upon a time.

Oh, that hat is lovely! What a talented knitter you are!
I tried to start my washcloth but had to rip it out after a few rows because it did NOT look like the sample photo AT ALL so I must be doing something wrong. I will study some YouTube videos to see if I can figure it out...
