Still Knitting

It's been a year-and-a-half since I lasted posted. Rest assured, I am still knitting. Perhaps not as prolifically before, but nevertheless, I still have projects I've been starting -- and finishing -- since that fateful Argosy Shawl (see below).

Perhaps I will revive this blog this year. Or perhaps, once again, it will become dusty again as New Year's resolutions fade into the February sunset.

I'm a different knitter than I was in 2007. I buy far less yarn (it's a bad economy, in case you hadn't heard). I have a different job that I like much, much better, so knitting-as-therapy isn't as crucial to my psyche. I have sworn off knitting sweaters (for now) as I have found even the FOs that look beautiful blocking are difficult to wear. I hate to admit it, but I'm much more fond of sporting my Gap sweaters.

Signing off until next time -- be it in 2009 or 2011!
