Hello! It's been a while. I'm sorry for abandoning my (self-imposed) obligation to the upkeep of this site. Turns out, I'm not nearly as efficient at mobile blogging as I thought I could be. I do, however, have a bunch of blog posts rolling around inside my head, so I hope you won't mind an equal, opposite reaction to the silence I've demonstrated over the past month while I get caught up.
Where to begin... Ah, yes. The last time we chatted, I had just returned from Wyoming and I promised you pictures of certain little sweater (tomorrow? maybe?). Almost immediately after I landed back in Chicago, Mike and I boarded a plane and took-off for two weeks in Ireland and the U.K.. There was sightseeing, food, libation, and, of course, fabric and yarn to be consumed in excess. Indubitably, with all the sky time I clocked, there was knitting; as a result, I have a few projects ready to reveal.
I had grand plans to share my adventures immediately after our return, but "the best laid plans... so often go astray". Mike and I both managed to acquire a heavy handed cold/flu on our return trip and, during our infliction, were basically worthless.
While we worked to reclaim our health, summer sneaked in and officially started, as did evening knitting and picnics at Jay Pritzker, festival season, movies in the park, etc... then I celebrated my birthday...there was more baby related knitting... and, well... Like I said earlier, I have bunches to share.
Please forgive the bombardment of posts to come in the next month. I'll do my best not to bore. I hope to be ready to start my recap tomorrow. As for now, I have a sweater calling my name and a Big Adventure of a different variety to attend to.
