Goodness, it's been a very long time since I did one of these! Today's sky is just unfortunate! Gray, rainy, and 52º at the moment.:
I have been trying to get some knitting done. There's yet another scarf I'd like to finish before I start a sweater of some sort with the yarn I got at Rhinebeck a couple of weeks ago. Here is the scarf as of yesterday afternoon:
And a close up:
The yarn is Noro Silk Garden Lite, and those are indeed Knitpicks Harmony needles, which I like a lot. The colors in the top picture are a little truer to life (and yes, it IS that same pattern I keep doing over and over again! LOL! Maybe it should become an art installation called "That Same Damned Scarf: 800 scarves of the same pattern with different yarns"...).
I know I've not posted much lately. The knitting mode has been very sporatic, and I've been trying to spend a little less time on the internet and more time with friends at home. I'm not sure how successful I've been, but I have been getting out more and doing things. When I first started blogging about 2 and a half years ago, my entire social life was on the internet (I know, kinda sad, but justified at the time). There were several people that I e-mailed back and forth with several times a day, which was a lot of fun. And little by little, we all started to get wrapped up in our own lives, started new jobs, or moving to new places, or becoming obsessed with new crafts or art forms. Very cool to see the changes that have happened over the last couple of years. I continue to teach, conduct and direct plays, and the day to day routine really doesn't change all that much. And yes, there is someone very special to me right now (who unfortunately is quite a distance away), and that has been such a very good thing for me (and a very big surprise - and I've been told frequently "When you least expect it...") But I also think that the distance is a good thing, for the time being. And even with the distance, it's very cool knowing that someone out there really cares and thinks I'm special. I've not had that for a very long time. And I DO really appreciate that. :-)
So, that's it for my world at the moment. I hope your sky isn't as gray as mine is at the moment!
