for me to post a blog update. I didn't realize such things happened in Virginia, so the rumblings I thought were construction work on the floor above me, turned out to be a rumbling of the earth 6 km below me. Very strange indeed.
I've been away for quite a while, mainly because I really haven't knit anything since Christmas. In fact I have partially knitted Christmas "gifts" still lying around. There are even some mostly completed knitted items that just need a bit work (weaving in the ends, blocking, etc.) I seem to have lost my knitting mojo. In fact I have large gift certificate (a christmas present from the family) to a wonderful yarn store sitting on my desk, and I haven't a clue or inclination to buy anything. My yarn stash taunts me from my shelves and my knitting needles take up space on my desk. I still buy knitting magazines, yet while I find the patterns intriguing, I still knit nothing.
Life's been a bit crazy these past few months. At first I think I was stressed out from starting a new job and the holiday crush. That and I tend to spend my free time fawning over my niece, the pumpkin. She's a gorgeous baby with a beautiful smile but she's had a pretty difficult few months. She's been diagnosed with infantile spasms, which is a rare type of seizure disorder. Her seizures last 1-3 seconds long but they occur in clusters that last for several minutes. It can be very scary sometimes.
Anyway, if and when I knit something, I will post. Otherwise stay tuned for photos of the baby, the dog, the garden. Right now, photography is easier than knitting and I'm quite obsessed with bokeh.
