I've been busy.....

I know, I've been MIA for a while, but I have some excuses......not sure any of them are good.

First of all, blogger/google has made it so difficult to do this that facebook just seems easier. Facebook also seems to have a bit of the instant gratification factor too....

Next, I've been knitting Christmas presents for everyone in my family. I'm determined not to really buy anything that no one needs, so, it's going to be a handmade Christmas around these parts. So far, the count includes, 4 pair of felted slippers, 4 pairs of socks, a needle felted jack Russell, and two sock monkey golf club covers that I had to engineer the pattern for. (pretty proud of myself for that one). Now that a few more folks have been added to the guest list, I'll be needing to make a cowl, a hat, and one more thing yet to be determined. That wasn't in the plan.

I've also been working on my blankie. A few weeks ago, knitpicks had the hue shift afghan as a free pattern. Had to have it. I worked  on it for a while, then set it aside to knit Christmas gifts, brought it back out when I thought it was done, but it's going back in the closet again.....more Christmas gifts.

I'll leave you with a sock monkey......because I can.
