I didn’t forget you – just busy with real life. That does include knitting and such but not so much to share. I’m mid-project on several items, as per normal, keeping up with store orders, looking after my Mum and adjusting to this new ‘sans Papasan’ life.
With my son away in Nanaimo, Dad was the ‘man in my life’ and it’s still a punch in the gut each time I think I’ll call to ask him the right pliers for this or how to plumb that. Ugghh… I’ve yet to adjust to my Nanny being gone in January. Anyway… neither of them would approve of any moping on their account so…
The good news is: thanks to Louise, manager at my LYS (Yarn Forward) and the constant encouragement of my Bestie (Frankie), I have a solid pattern presence at a bricks-and-mortar shop. Yay!! So if you are ever in the neighbourhood, you can find patterns and samples there.
I just wrapped up the Kitchener close on a cowl, no pattern – The Bing On My Cherry – just using up some gorgeous Elann Highland silk and a new skein of Lang Mohair Luxe and am working a super cute, easy cardigan pattern from Plucky Knitter – Put The Kettle On – in some ancient Debbie Bliss silk merino aran. I’m using more stash – Yarntini this time – to work the Leventry shawl or as I call it, Leventry-tini.
Here’s a pic or two of the knitty doings:
