Been a while:

I haven't been on here in a LONG while. I started working and stopped having time to blog. For the most part it was either knit or blog, and knitting won. But now I'm here. Most of the work I've done since I was on here last I either sold, or gave away as gifts. I made 1 sock, and gave up on the second. Mostly what I've enjoyed doing is creating fun beanies for my nephews.

Whenever I can't find the colors I want I dare to overdye. The yarn below is the same yarn as the yellow socks.
