It's Been A Busy Summer

Its been a busy summer so far. Birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, more Birthdays, baby showers, wedding showers, graduation parties, & weddings....along w/life in general! Whew! I've had hardly any time to knit, so that's why I haven't kept up w/my blog too well.

I've spent a lot time going back & for to appointments, so that's where I have been able to concentrate on my knitting. While waiting in a waiting room today, I was able to get a lot of the Textured Slip Stitch Dishcloth (AKA Ballband Dishcloth)

Currently, I have the back of cardigan sweater in the works. I needed a basic white sweater. I used to be able to give my dear mom a yell & she'd have a sweater or a blanket or whatever whipped up for me in no time, but now, I have to carry on the legacy handed down to me from my mom. I've been playing around w/the Sweater Wizard software, but I haven't been able to figure out how to design a cardigan that I do not have to knit the button band separately, but it might be awhile before I get to knitting the fronts of the sweater.

I'm also working on a sock, but the poor thing has been frogged so many times that I have decided to take a break from it. I also have been thinking about getting started on a afghan for a very dear relative that will be getting married soon. I just need a break for all the action, so that I can get to a store for some yarn. Sounds like therapy to me.

So, that's what been going on w/me. I'm still here....trying to get back to my knitting.
