Finally - after a LONG Break!

Time has certainly gotten away from me. It's not that I haven't been knitting, but life has just taken over and I have totally lost track of time.

Let's see...to catch up:

DS1: has been home from college all summer and working like crazy. We moved his furniture into a house that he is going to be sharing with 2 friends just off campus and he starts classes Thursday. Very excited for him and scared too, but I know that he will be just fine. He will still be coming home on some of the weekends because he is keeping his job in town, so it's great that he is less than an hour away from home. But still nice that he is able to stretch his wings.

DS2: will be starting high school in 2 weeks but has already started practicing for Cross Country. It will be his first school sport so he is very excited. Marching Band will start once school starts because they do not have all the instruments in yet for them to start practicing early since they are a brand new school.

DH: just working, working, working. We enjoyed our vacation cruise but since coming back from vacation, it's been non-stop it seems.

Today is also my puppy's birthday! He's 2 and he is just the cutest thing. I don't know what we did before we had him. I guess it was just a lot quieter then.

On the Knitting front:

I am still working on my Charlene Schurch 3x3 cable with moss stitch socks. I am on the foot of the 2nd one and had a bit of a screw-up so Friend is doing a bit of surgery on that one. The other sock is finished already and looks good.

I FINALLY finished DS1's Harry Potter Scarf in the Hufflepuff Colors (also the colors of his University) and I have started working on Prisoner of Azkaban Hogwarts scarf for me in the Gryffindor colors. I think that it's a little more grown-up. I'm a little over half-way thru with it too. It's a very quick knit!

Also, I am working on the 3rd Installment of the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin Sock Club socks and I am LOVING it...the colorway is called Firebird and the pattern is The Solstice Slip. It is another toe-up pattern and I have to say that I really like the fact that I can use all of my yarn and I don't have to graft the toe. 2 huge pluses in favor of toe-up.

I have almost finished the leg of Sock #1 and I am working on the heel of Sock #2. The next installment started shipping out to the East Coast on Monday but I don't think that I will be done with these when it arrives. I don't know if I will finish and then start or just start another pair of socks.

I have also cast on for a lace shawl but that is one that is going to take F-O-R-E-V-E-R, so I'm just hoping to work on that at home and maybe have it finished by 2010.

I will post pictures tomorrow, but wanted to get a post up since it truly has been months!

Pssst ... the link to Charlene's book has one too many "http//"s in it making it not work. I'm just sayin'.

Glad to see ya blogging again! I'll try to perform sock surgery before my STR kit comes.
