Long time, no post. Some updates.

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in quite a long time. March really did me in. I got pregnant (planned), my cousin died suddenly at the age of 38, I miscarried, and then my boyfriend lost his job. We’re facing a move to a new (to me) city, and it’s tax time, and frankly, I’ve been a bit overwhelmed. I haven’t been knitting as much as I normally would, because I just haven’t had a lot of energy.

That said, now it’s April, it’s grey and rainy and dreary out, but that’s okay, because we have planted our seedlings (varieties of tomatoes, peppers, squash, a cactus and a sunflower) and they are doing well, and I know “April showers bring May flowers” and all that jazz, so things are looking up. I’m starting to get excited at the prospect of moving to a new city (provided all goes as planned there), and to our planned vacation in May, and to trying to get pregnant again. πŸ™‚

So, here are some of my recent projects:

Bobble dishcloth - in progress

This is what my latest dishcloth looked like while I was working on it. It was quite easy to do on the train, because it was a repetition of four rows that were quite easy to memorize. I did this for a friend of mine, at her request. The finished cloth:

Finished Bobble cloth

I’m quite pleased wit how it turned out. I will post a pic of the next cloth I’ve started for her soon. She asked for 4 cloths in neutral colors, and I’m excited about the commission.

The other thing I did was a “Tribble” scrubbie:


This is a great way to use up remnants of dishcloth yarn, and it seems to wash my dishes REALLY well. πŸ™‚ My only complaint about it is that it takes FOREVER for it to dry once you’ve used it, due to being so thick. Still, it was a quick-knit and I’m pleased with it.

I currently reside in Pittsburgh, having moved here in May 2008. I live with my husband Fred and life is really awesome. In the past few years I have completely changed my life (and I couldn't do it without support from family and friends). I now work as a writer and editor, and my favorite topics to write about are how to live a more positive life, book reviews, and sharing my crafts. Welcome!

  1. Oh my, April was quite a whammo of a month. I sure do hope May was much better. And that your vacation was conducive to getting pregnant again. πŸ™‚ As for moving, definitely do this before baby arrives!!! Much easier that way.
