Been away for too long!


Yes, it's me. I know, I've been away for too long. Thankfully Tamami has kept up with posting about her knitting progress. For the past 5 weeks, I've been trying to keep up with life as my husband is working out of town for the entire week and only home on weekends. Between the baseball practice, games, basketball practice, games, my school, my homework, my kids' homework, cleaning the house, making dinner, and taking care of other people's kids there has been no time for blogging.

We had a wonderful Knit Night on Friday where Tamami made us knit with only one hand! Everyone received a prize, but Huguette was the true winner. Here's is my latest finished project which now is residing in FlourChylde Bakery in downtown Novato:

Huguette also did a pumpkin but hers has a green stem on it. Both turned out quite nice. I want to knit more for next fall. Also, a friend of mine said that she loved it which means that I might have to make her one too!

Other projects on the needles:
The blue feather and fan shawl is about half way done. It has been put aside in order to work on next project.

Triangular shawl that I'm knitting on a whim for my grandmother. I'm not using a pattern, so we'll have to see how it turns out. Hopefully it will work.

A sock - yes, I've started a sock but the sock knitting thing doesn't have a hold on me so my ADD keeps dragging me away from it. I do want to have a pair of socks that I have knit, but the desire isn't enough to force me to pick it up again.

We had a wonderful weekend of helping at the Bakery during safe trick-or-treating downtown on Saturday. It was great to see the variety of costumes. Today we did some projects around the house, some shopping, and a trip to the ER with my oldest son who injured his finger while playing basketball Thursday. We kept thinking that his finger would show signs of improvement, but after no change we decided to get an x-ray. Yep, it's fractured. No more basketball for 3 to 4 weeks.

Thankfully it will heal without problem or medical intervention, and thankfully it wasn't on the hand of a knitter! (Ok, groan if you want to)

Oh my -- ouch! Hope his hand will heal soon!

I love the pumpkin on the fallen leaves. Nice shot.
