Whew. Another long stretch with no blogging. I'm still deciding whether or not to keep this thing going. I haven't had much to say lately. Actually, I just haven't felt much like blogging. I had an incident which kind of discouraged me. I'd just like to say this: my blog is my blog. If you don't like what I say or how I say it or the words I choose to use or the pictures I choose to share or the things I decide to knit, etc., there are lots of other blogs you can read. Please move on to one you find more to your liking rather than complaining about mine. I promise, you won't miss much if you stop reading my random ramblings.
While I haven't been blogging much, I've been playing elsewhere on the internet. Twitter is always up & running on my computer if I'm on the internet, and Flickr has become one of my favorite places...you can find me here. My Project 365 is still going strong, and I'm feeling more confident and inspired with every passing day. There is a great community on Flickr, and I'm enjoying this project more than I ever expected I would. I'm also dabbling in a few new things thanks to Flickr inspiration, like hooping and improving my crochet skills. Thanks to a very generous birthday gift from Brian last week (new camera!!!), I'm taking better pictures than ever, and having a great time while doing so.
I've been in a bit of a knitting slump recently, and have put the needles down to focus on spending more time outside, or um, sleeping. Adjusting to being back at work kind of wore me out for the first month...sad, I know, but I think I've finally got myself on a regular schedule. I have been working on a few things here and there, like this sock:
Pattern: Charade, by Sandra Park
Yarn: Yarn Pirate Merino Sock in Cannon Beach
and this sweater:
Pattern: Hey Teach by Helene Rush
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in Stone
Hopefully I'll feel more inspired to knit now that I don't feel quite so much like a zombie when I get home in the evening.
In the past week, I also managed to celebrate my 29th birthday.
I'm still kind of in shock, not because getting older is a big deal to me, but because it doesn't seem like that long ago when I thought 29 was a long way off. Time flies, especially when life is pretty damn good.
One more thing...my dog is still ridiculously cute.
Sorry, I just couldn't help myself!
