I've missed being around!

Wow, it feels like it's been forever since I've been on the site. What little spare time I've had, I've spent knitting. If I don't get to knit at least some each day, I get very grumpy! The flip side is that I've missed you guys and staying on top of what everyone's doing.

I finally finished David's clogs - he got them a month late. I've also finished my first sweater and pair of socks. No pictures of them yet, but I will post them once I get some taken.

I now have going my first sweater done in the round -- no seams, yeah! For the sleeves, I'm using the magic loop method for the first time instead of DPNs. I think I like DPNs better, but with the Knit Pick options needles and cables, it just made sense to try magic loop first and it's going well. I also have my second pair of socks going and I'm about to finish a baby cuddle toy for my niece. For Christmas, I'm going to try really hard to restart and finish the Orangutan to give my nephew and get a stocking cap knit for my brother.
