Ho Hum...

Yeah, yeah, yeah... So it's been months and I apologize to all my followers (however small that following might be). What's been going on you ask? Well as for me, I've been working on some mittens (you're shocked I'm sure *sarcasm*), and have found that embroidering on knitted items is a little more difficult than embroidering on tea towels. But it's fun and passes the time, so I'm game.

I've also been preparing for the new school year, which begins next week! I'm too young to have a 5th grader I've decided, I'm also too young to have a 10 year old. Where did the summer go? I don't remember the months ever passing so quickly when I was young, now it seems like all the days run together. Does anyone else feel this way?

As far as knitting with others, Thom and I have knitted together less this summer than I had hoped we would, but I'm optimistic and think our knitting sessions will become more frequent :)

On a side note, I'm seriously considering trying to sell my knitted goods on Etsy (for those of you that don't know what Etsy is, I recommend finding out and becoming part of the awesomeness known as buying "handmade"). I worry people won't like what I make or my work isn't good enough to sell to anyone, but with some encouragement I may find the strength to crawl out of my self doubt shell and just do it!

For now, that's all I got for you good people following this blog. I promise to try and stay current from now on, but remember, I'm a busy mom that works full time and fills my quiet moments with knitting :)
