Long Time No See

I have decided that the great and wonderful RAVELRY (OZ) has been detrimental to the writing of this blog. I am so addicted !

But...I signed up for a Fun swap and I hate for people to follow a link to my blog and find NOTHING! I hate that for all my friends as well. So here I am giving it another stab!

This is the swap- it is all about coffee and yarn! Definitely two of my favorite things. sign ups end tonight but here is a link Can you see the link? It is that first word "link" just in case anyone interested reads this TONIGHT!!

On the knitting front, I am right busy. I am knitting the February Ladies Sweater ( link won't work if you aren't in Ravelry- if not - why not?) which is an adaptation of Elizabeth Zimmerman's February Baby Sweater but upsized for a grownup. Most of Ravelry is knitting it already or thinking about knitting it, or dreaming about knitting it. Wanna see my yarn? I do have a picture of that. As for the actual sweater I have done so much ripping that I haven't gotten too too far.

Isn't that an absolutely gorgeous green?? YES! You know it is! That is Dream in Color Classy in the Happy Forest colorway. It makes me so happy when I look at it or even ! Knit! with it.

Well if you have stuck around and checked in on me from time to time I hope you ARE pleased to see that someone is home! Next time I will "leave the light on"

Hi Emmy!

I'm the same way -- Ravelry is sucking up blogging time. Oh well -- we just have to get everyone to come over to Ravelry!

Your middle son is cute! :-)

Hi Emmy! Good to "read" you again. I love the green yarn. Can't wait to see the sweater as it progresses. Great pic of your son. Yes they do grow up too fast.

Yeah, Ravelry is a time suck for sure. I am planning on doing the Feb. Lady Sweater, but not until Summer of Socks is over--I'm one of the mods. Now that is a REAL time suck!

Welcome back Emmy! Yes, Ravelry is a total addiction - - I'm on it at least twice a day. Your green fiber is gorgeous and I look forward to seeing the finished sweater.

Enjoy your swap (I'll have to do one of those someday - - they look like fun!).
