Well, that was scary…

I guess it’s been a while since I’ve posted, huh? I just pulled up wordpress on my laptop and couldn’t get my site to load. I thought for a second my blog had been deleted!

This is just a quick post to say that, while it’s been one heck of a year, things are finally calming down a touch. I think about blogging a lot, but it’s been hard to set aside the time and space to make it happen. I’m planning on remedying that! I also had a concurrent lull in my knitting, but that seems to have come to an end, too. I have a few shawls to blog about, some luscious yarn acquisitions to share, and some serious project planning to indulge in. Back soon with more!

In the meantime, here’s a quick peek at what I’ve been working on lately. It’s a Yoga Shawl by Andrea Mowry, a pattern I’d had my eye on for a while. 

I even got the chance to do some beach knitting!

Lastly, I’ll leave you with a link to a video I stumbled across on ravelry earlier. I wish I’d found it before starting the yoga shawl, but c’est la vie. It’s a tutorial on a simple technique to minimize the gaps that can occur when switching from knits to purls: Knitting Help from VeryPink Knits

Happy knitting!

      Thank you and thank you šŸ™‚ I have missed you too. I am in LOVE with your purple hair!
      I still can’t post from my laptop–can’t get the page to load. It works from my phone, but it’s a pain to add all the photos and links that I want from my phone. Not sure what’s going on with that. Hopefully I’ll figure it out soon!

        Awww…thank you! I love my purple hair too šŸ˜€ I understand posting from your phone. I had to do my blog post like that today to make sure that I got in my First Thursday Sock post. I had to keep saving it as a Draft and then copying / pasting stuff. They have made it a lot easier than it used to be though! I’ll look forward to another post soon šŸ™‚
