I have to say, I don't like going so long without dropping a note on the blog scene. But I keep thinking if I don't have a picture to post with my words, it will be boring. I also think I have to post about knitting. After all, it is a blog devoted to knitting.

I am working on some projects. I've recently frogged the vest I started with my grey heather Caron's Simply Soft. I am now knitting a cardigan sweater with it (sweater #3 attempt with this yarn). We'll see how it goes. The pattern calls for knitting it in 3 panels. I have the back panel finished and ready to begin the left side.

I also have a sock on the needles. As you know, I have a hard time with socks. I have yet to finish a pair. The first pair I knitted were too narrow to fit even a ski foot. Therefore they are unusable. I started another sock and got to the closing of the toe and have yet to finish it. Since then, I've started yet another and put it down to start the jacket. I was trying to knit the sock from the toe up thinking it would be easier. But so far, socks in general are just hard. I'm destined to knit only scarves and wash cloths.

Well, that's it. My boring post. It's snowing and I'm watching American Idol. Hope your evening is enjoyable.

It's been snowing and sleeting since after noon on Monday. Snow makes everything look so beautiful and sparkly? This was taken around 8:30 p.m. Monday evening.

Ok. I lied. I said I'd post a picture of the ruffly twisted scarf (Angora Times Two Pattern) that I knitted for a friend for her birthday. Well, I forgot to take the picture. I gave it to her without getting a picture of it. She said she liked it though. She even wore it to work last week. The yarn was so soft it just beckoned to be snuggled into. Sorry I lied.
