Long long time no post. I am happy to report that all is well here at the Mountalan abode. It feels as if Polly-Jean has been around forever even though she is only 10 months old. The cats act like grumpy old men around her, which seeing as they are 8 years old I guess that's okay.
I have been plugging away at knitting here and there when the time suits me. Some days my mojo is on and some weeks it's off. The weather was really hot a couple weeks back and i didn't knit one stitch for almost 5 days. Instead I sat around and read The Gargoyle between walks to the park and turning the ac on for an hour if only to drop the heat in the house by a degree. I'll attempt to have photos in the next post. Perhaps a few of the stinker (aka Polly Jean) all grown up, and some of my knitting projects even if they aren't blocked. I finished a long cowl and a sinful ribbed scarf back in january, colonnade in april, wisp in june and tudor grace in july. I am currently working on a shawl but can't give away any more details as it's a gift for someone later on in the year. I am thinking of doing a shawl or two for me next. I really like spring leaves and i have three skeins of blue malabrigo sock yarn called impressionist sky that I think will go well together.
I hauled out all my yarn on friday and reorganized it into yarn weights. A half tote has all my lace and dk/sport weight yarn. One bin has all my aran/worsted weight yarn and some stuff that i'm not too keen on, that i won't be touching til sometime in the fall. The final bin was chock full of sock yarn. Now the two large bins where overflowing a bit so i had to throw the four skeins of twinkle that i own and a half dozen skeins of sock yarn into a forth bin so that i could close them but all and all not so bad. Although I do have to say I have quite a lot more sock yarn than i remember having, and I know it doesn't count in the grand scheme of things in the stash world, but it does to me.
Oh and I may have taken just one photo of all that yarn in bins just to remind myself of how much yarn i really do have. That photo i'll definitely be including in my next post.
Ciao for now!
