I’m Back!

Well, now that I’ve adjusted back to semi-normal, and I have a camera again, it’s back to blogging! To start off, some long-overdue thank yous:

Thanks Alyssa! Alyssa was my Secret Pal! I use the little scissors all the time, and the whole package smelled like the coconut candy she sent!

Thanks Cindy who was my Coffee Swap 3 partner. She brought back coffee from Hawaii!

And last, but not least, thanks Cathy! Cathy was my Hand-dyed yarn swap partner who is also from Wisconsin.

Isn’t that lovely yarn?  Of course there was a lot more stuff with all of those, but the treats are all eaten, the coffee’s been drunk, and some of the yarn has even been knitted!

These mittens were knit with the yarn I got from Cathy, and the accent stripe is the yarn I got from the first round of the Hand-dyed yarn swap. The pattern will be posted soon.
Until then, I’ve also made a similar mitten (just one so far) out of worsted weight Malabrigo. The pattern is under the Malabrigo Mittens tab! (check it out!)

That’s it for knitting, now for kids!

Girly turned 1 on Monday! She’s copped an attitude since then, too.

It must have been the delicious Burned Butter-Brown Sugar Cake with buttercream frosting!

And, I got new glasses! I can see!

    Wow! Back with a vengeance! Love the Girly pictures — she’s Number One, all right!
    And those mittens are amazing. What a cool pattern, unique and visually so striking — the combos of shapes and colors — wow again! I’m glad you (evidently) liked the yarn, and I love what you did with it.
    Yay for seeing too — it’s a good thing.
