Just a quick post here to say that I might not be online/blogging/on rav as much as usual over the next week or two. There’s lots going on chez moi and the unfortunate result is that I won’t have much time to knit, much less talk about knitting. The long and short of it is that I am going back to work, starting tomorrow.This is both good and bad, but I’m hoping the net result will be good.

My performance in the Ravellenic Games might suffer as a result. I got off to a crazy good start and had my baby blanket about a third of the way done in just a couple of days. I’m still making progress, but it has slowed a little. Here’s my latest progress pic:


In the two days since I took this photo, I have finished the second section and gotten about halfway through the third. I am seriously loving the pattern and how mine is turning out, and could easily see making another one in the future.

I got the opportunity to sign up to test for Ambah O’Brien, and just couldn’t resist. So, on my next day off, I will dig out some yarn and start swatching for a really interesting cowl. More on that sometime later.

I don’t have a new sock project picked out yet, so I will sit tomorrow’s Thursday Sock-Along out. By next week I will hopefully have something new to share!

So, I’m not gone–just lurking a bit. Keep on knitting and I will check in soon.

Happy knitting!

    You’re an Olympic level knitter, I’m not worried about you 🙂 Honestly, I feel like a slacker by comparison 🙂

    Good luck with the back to work! I hope all goes well and that, once you’re settled in, it’s a net good effect! Your baby blanket is just gorgeous! I love your color combination!

    Congratulations on the new job! Work definitely cuts into knitting time, as you’ve heard me complain about before 🙂 The blanket is looking awesome and I also love the color combination. It is super, super cute!

    Good luck with work. I’m looking at a return to the work world soon as well, I feel your pain! It comes up so suddenly, it’s good but man, it’s an adjustment!

    Love the blanket so far, the perpendicular-ness just sucks me in!

    Good luck! I went back last month after 4 years off, and it is a hard switch! Hope it ends up being a good thing for you. 🙂
