Dropping by

I know, I know. I promise, I haven't done anything blogworthy lately.

I did finish the present I was knitting, and I forgot to take a picture of it! It was a shawl, knit lenghtwise, using James C. Brett Marble Chunky. I used nearly 3 whole balls of it, for a total of approximately 1000 yards. It is a scrumptiously soft yarn, and Princess Plumy thought I had to be knitting it just for her.

Now that it's finished, I'm back to working on the Jaywalker sample for Gale. I'm ready to do the heel, which I may get done tonight.

I won't be blogging much this next week either. I've gotten out of shape for working retail, and I find myself feeling pretty beat when I get home. The days I'm not working there, I've been working around the house or running those errands that always need to be run - groceries, petfood, repeat. I may have written about Keith decreeing that we would start getting to bed earlier since we wake up early anyway. Well, the days are getting shorter. We've had a lot of dim, grey weather lately, and I feel pretty sleepy most of the time. I felt more normal after hearing the other women in the Artist's Way group saying they've felt really tired lately. I'm just waiting for some cooler weather to energize me. To get back on subject, we've been going to bed earlier, which actually cuts into my computer time - a lot.

So, don't look for me to be here much until maybe next week. I'll see if I can get a picture of the finished shawl since Daphne only lives a few minutes down the road. I'll work on getting the Jaywalker finished so that there's more than one picture next time.

I'm out of the loop. Where are you working now?
