Yeah, I kinda took a year off from blogging.  I just decided recently that I want to start blogging again, so I’m going to.  What have I been up to in the past year?  Well, Mike and I have been busy starting our life together, working on remodeling our condo, no, it’s not done yet.  We adopted 3 amazing cats, Stuart, Oliver and little Nigel.  Yes, I will post photos soon.  I’ve been knitting, not as much as I used to, I’ve developed arthritis in my thumbs and tendonitis in my elbow.  Yes, I will post photos of that soon as well.  I still make coffee and I’ve been teaching a lot of yoga lately.  So what have all my readers been up to in the past year?


What Is Going On With Me?!?

I have been wanting to write this post for so long, I just didn’t think the time was right, or I couldn’t find the right words. I think I am finally ready to let everyone know what is going on with me this Summer and why I haven’t been posting very often. I am in the process of getting divorced. Carl and I were together for 20 years and our parting was absolutely as amicable as these things can be. I wish nothing but happiness and peace in his future. He has had as much stress this Summer as one person could possibly handle and I hate it that I was a part of that, but sometimes in life we don’t get to choose the timing of these type of things. I am in a new relationship with the most wonderful man. His name is Mike and we are in the process of building our new life together. I am so very happy and many of my health issues have resolved themselves (I am sleeping now!!!). We are in the process of remodeling our new condo and that takes up much of my free time. But I have been able to squeeze in some knitting and I actually have photos to share with you.

Here is the first finished Hemp Lace sock.

And the first finished Tofutsies sock.

Their mates have all been started, but not really enough progress to show you on those. As I said in my last post, I have a horrible case of startitis. My Four Seasons Afghan is underway.

I also purchased the rest of the yarn for the other squares. You may notice there is one bright red square, I’m not too sure about it. I may have to do something else.

What I have been working on the most lately is the new Argosy Baby Blanket for my friend’s Jason and Beth. I am using the Blue Sky Organic Cotton yarn. Cotton is sprayed heavily with pesticides during the growing process, so I like that this yarn is organic since is going to be wrapping up such a precious package. I have been knitting on it almost exclusively. I am almost halfway done.
