Hopefully everyone has been wondering where I've been. I've been here, waiting for winter to end. It is so gray, and yucky. I haven't even been lurking on blogs. I haven't answered any comments from weeks ago, and I owe two memes. Bad blogger! I have to snap out of it and get back to being a compulsive blog reading, blog posting, comment queen!
I get so depressed this time of year. It feels like winter will never end, money's tight (as usual), and the kids and I are sick to death of being in this house! Luckily, the people at the library are very nice, and help us to find books to get through the boredom that is festering around here. We've been crafting, too, though. That seems to be the only thing that is saving my sanity. Check out the stitch markers I made. Skulls! LD got me these beads. I also made her a bracelet with a skull as the center piece. She is really into pirate stuff right now, and is compulsively watching the Pirate's of the Caribbean movies.
Here's something to cheer me up! Carrie made me this sweet little bunny, almost totally out of real bunny! My picture is yucky, so go check her post out. I saw it and left a comment, thinking "Someone must have done something nice for her", not realizing that it was me. That put a smile on my face.
This sweater here, is making me feel pretty good, too. Thankfully, the pictures are a little blurry and you can't see how blah I am. I am doing the longer sleeved version in wool, and I plan on wearing it all next winter. I will definitely have to do a real photo shoot when it's done. It is my first ever sweater. I am no longer a sweater virgin. (I'm going to be getting some weirdos here, aren't I?)
I knit another pair of fiber trend clogs, and sent them off to my SIL without taking a picture. *smacks forehead* Then I started a
OK, so I'm sad, and sick of winter, among other things, and I need to know if 4 inches is too narrow for a scarf. So, is it? Let me know what you think, so maybe I can finish the darn thing before June. lol
I hope all you other knitters are doing better than I am. Maybe I should go blog browsing and find out!
