Oh, right. Yarn blog.

Hi! Stuff has happened since my last post. Yarn kind of stuff, and non-yarn kind of stuff.

I knit this sweater in August! I wore it to Iceland in September! It stretched and slipped and is now enormous, because bamboo has a sense of humour that I just don't get! Oh well. I bought lots of yarn in Iceland, and it was an incredible, breathtaking vacation.

I got back from vacation and promptly fell into weeks of training. I learned lots. My brain and my body hurt from all I learned, but it was good. Very little was accomplished on the beekeeper quilt. It is resting, as my math kind from the last post kind of frightened me, and I need to regain my groove.

I finished two pairs of socks in the last couple of weeks, as my husband was giving me quite enthusiastic shit about seeming to always be buying new knitting needles. He's supportive, but will cheerfully pick on me, like a good hubbinbeast should. I had great plans on continuing to finish projects, but the yarn for the Hue Shift afghan just came in, and, well...I just cast it on. This'll be my new "track the progress" project. Just so you know how the blog should look, assuming I don't fall off the face of the earth for a few months again.
