Sorry, I'm a poor blogger!

I haven't been blogging and now I'm posting without pictures. I apologize. Life seems to just hit fast. Nothing bad just busy!

The diamond shawl is progressing slowly, I'm halfway through the 9th repeat. 10 repeats will be what I need to complete it so it's close. I'm planning a small throw for a friend of mine for Christmas, big needles (Speed Stix!) so it should go fast but be appreciated. Different colors than the pattern but the ones my son picked are rich and remind me of autumn.

I need to get brave and start a sweater for my son. I'd like him to be able to wear it for Christmas school concerts but that means I need to start. Having never done a sweater I'm nervous about the idea. Especially since gauge is not my friend.

OH, and I found self-striping sock yarn in acrylic, Moda Dea Sassy Stripes. I'm so excited about that because most what I see is always wool. I'm now excited about trying socks again. Plus I bought that new Ann Budd book "Getting Started with Socks".

Kitten is doing very well, although older cat is still not entirely pleased about his existence.

Ok, and I just have to say, I've been dating and very happily that is eating up some of my time. But you will hear no complaints from me on that subject!!

Happy Crafting! - DFly

ordered some special yarn for y.o.u. to play with when you are here (hope you can still visit. it's a clever non-wool that even had ME fooled into thinking it was a natural fiber (of sheepish origin) Type at you soon. Cami
