Again it has been forever since I wrote a post. Been spending more time over on Facebook, I guess. Or not on the computer.
My knitting muse disappeared for awhile, too. But she has returned, and I am back to some knitting. I knit a stripey organic cotton newborn hat and am now knitting a little cardi for the guy. Still working on the Hedgerow socks, and I am dying to cast on a vest for myself but am holding off until I finish the newborn cardi. I need to cast off the body and then I am ready for the sleeves. It is called the Felix cardigan and I found it on a blog — can’t recall which one at the moment. Easy peasy — knit seamless on a circular from the top down — 4 stitch markers. Cool. Even I can do that.
What else have I been doing, you say — oh, cooking, cleaning, working, driving the fashionista hither and yon, taking care of her dog, getting ready to go to Africa….. that’s right. I did say Africa. Southern Sudan, specifically. On a mission trip. In March 2009. Lots of preparation involved. But I am very very excited about it.
