has this blogger been? Oh where oh where can she be?
Well, if you must know...
Things I have been doing while not blogging.
1) once again rearranging the yarn room. We are down to 4 bookshelves and enough room to put the piano in here as well. Sadly, while I measured the potential piano space, I did not measure the path the piano would have to travel and now there is a big empty spot. I am plotting and scheming plans to remedy this but will not reveal until its a done deal.
2) playing the ukulele. I bought a new one last month. It doesn't slide out of tune so quickly which has made playing rather pleasant. That I have been playing it when I could be knitting suggests that it will join the list of acceptable hobbies.
3) knitting... I have nothing to show for said knitting, as I've been working on miles and miles of Elsebeth Lavold Log Cabin Moderne. It would seem that I have committed to this project (unlike so many others) and in spite of the endless garter stitch, I will forge on.
but what about the funny?
Trust me when I say that if I had some funny, this would be one of the first places I'd share it.
I do have a piece of knitterly/driving advice to share.
If you happen to knit a malabrigo balaclava, and you happen to wear it on the -4 degree drive to school, be sure to take it off if your eyelids start to get droopy because it is so cozy. I managed to do this in time, but I may have found a cure for insomnia! (at least if you have it at -4 degrees while driving.)
