Gettin' My Groove Back

Sorry y'all. I know it has been a long time.
You probably have given up on me, and I can't say I don't blame you.

There has been some changes going on in my life...some more difficult to adapt to then others. But I am here, and I am going to try and make it up to you. =)

I have not been doing much knitting at all until lately.

However, I did manage to finish up my Dulaan items..but I did not get them mailed in time. Oh well, I am sure they will be appreciated for next year. I will post pics of them soon.

In other knitting news, I have WAY to much on the needles. My goals are shot all to hell. But I am OK with that. Hopefully I will get some things on the FO list soon. You know how it is, I know I am not the only one.

I too succumbed to the lure of the Mystery Stole, and after a crazy hunt for a small enough crochet hook to get the beads on, I have begun. I am half way through the first clue..and I am addicted. Again, pics soon...promise.

Also I started Fifi with The Sexy Knitters Club. I am not that far into it, but I am loving the yarn (Rowan Calmer) and the pattern.

And of course, there are socks. I have the Twisted Flower Socks,(going very slowly), the Victorian Lace Socks (from the 6 socks KAL), a pair of Sidewinders, and some plain socks in Austermann Step on the needles.

And if that was not enough? I got my invite to Ravelry...I am not even going there yet...I know once I do it will be all over for me.

So how are YOU doing?

Yay!!!! Mel's back - woohoo!! You were most certainly missed, but as a completely craptastic blogger myself of late (don't you hate it when real life gets in the way?!) I understand your plight. Hope things are settling down (((hugs))).

When you do go to Ravelry (and you must! it is the. best. thing. ever!) make sure you 'friend' me so I'll know you have arrived - my id is Kellie (early joiner, lol). I swear to God it's not just a time sucker, it will make you more organised and focused, and oh, the eye candy - mmmmmmmmm.

It's good to hear from you again. We were starting to get worried. I 2nd the Ravelry comments...you will totally get sucked in. There's just so much to see & check out. Hope to see you soon. OH! I'm sockfanatic on Ravelry. =)

wbpWelcome back! I've been thinking about you and wondering how you have been. I too got sucked into the Mystery Stole, I've finished Clue 2 so far. It will be a while before I get my Ravelry invite, I was late getting in line for that one. :-)

Welcome back!!

Oh yes, I have too much on my needles too. So much, I had to buy some new sock needles. :-)
That was a hardship.

I still have to get a crochet hook for my MS3, that's how far behind I am.
Ah well.

So, so glad you are here again!
