Not dead.

Or, as one commenter hopefully speculated, married.

I've just gotten really busy, and also I lost my camera battery charger and was too cheap to buy a new one for $80. I eventually found a cheaper replacement, so now I can photograph these lovelies:


One FO, a Multnomah shawl in Fibre Company Road to China Light. I adore both this yarn and this pattern. The yarn is unbelievably soft and incredibly warm -- alpaca, camel and silk combine to make this like a little heater for my shoulders.

I am calling this my hubris shawl, because I had to rip it out and reknit it like 4 times, because I didn't bother to read the pattern very carefully.


I never thought I was a shawl person, but I love it, so I'm working on another, a Daybreak shawl in Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! Also an unbelievably gorgeous yarn, soft and kettle dyed. I'm not 100% sold on this color combination, but I'm waiting to see once there are more orange stripes.


And it's all orange and green/teal, all the time here, evidently, because I also made myself a pair of Endpaper mitts in two colors of Knitpicks Stroll yarn. They're already pilly after only a few weeks of use, but that's to be expected with this yarn, and it was super cheap.


Okay. I can't promise to blog with much more regularity, but I'll try. And at least now I can post pictures again!

So glad you're back! I've really missed following along on all your knitting adventures. I guess I should let you know that you are responsible for my new addiction - knitting baby sweaters. There are no little children or grandchildren in my life, but I plan to start putting pressure on my UC Berkeley junior to find a mate and produce some offspring. I need to get rid of these sweaters! And who knows how many drawers full there will be when she finally settles down.....

What lovely projects! I, too, enjoyed the multnomah and like you, didn't think I was a shawl person, but am now hooked.

Beautiful! No wonder you've been busy.
