Keeping Me in Stitches

Monday, July 13, 2009

Contrary to popular belief....

....I have not dropped off the face of the earth. Been traveling (Estes was wonderful) and got a new computer (that I finally set up tonight). Really not too much going on.

Knitting....

Working on a 7th knitted gater to send to Operation Knitted Gater on Ravelry. Stopped work on my Mystic Roses, but I'm ready to pick it up at clue 3. Started and finished a Magic Shawl in some Brooks Farm Acero that I got at Estes. Finished Mom's birthday Lenores. Started on a Baby Yours sweater for Elaine's peanut. I think that's it.

The Garden....

Strawberries were delicious and the rhubarb gave me two quart bags of pieces so far. I've been baking rhubarb custard cake and loving every bit of it. My new daylillies have been blooming and so have the new fairy lillies. Still nothing from the gladiolas and irises besides leaves. The bunnies mowed off my gloriosa daisies and I don't think anything is bringing them back, but the coneflowers at least have leaves.

Work....

...is work. What more can I say? I passed my 5-year mark at the beginning of June. It's hard to believe I've been here that long.

Sock Summit....

Still can't believe I'm going. Hopefully I'll see a bunch of you there. Be sure to come up and say hi! I still need to start my homework for the two classes I got into. I think we're flying out the 5th, coming back the 10th. Mom and I will be staying at the Red Lion and going to the Luminary Panel as well.

Guess that's it! Really, it's been a boring bit for me. Keep your eyes peeled for something new around there though!

    Even though you call is boring, that's still quite a bit of stuff to talk about - glad things are going well!

    I see mention of that Rhubarb custard cake again. Sure would love the recipe.
    Congrats on five years in the looney bin. My how time flys.

    I see on Plurk that you are processing fleece. Me too. Are you gonna blog about it? I hope so. I could use some company.
