... if you like this sort of thing. I've finally finished writing up my hoodie baby blanket pattern, and it's here. I hope you like it. (Oh, whoops--I didn't realize the page would show up in the normal flow of the blog. It's immediately below this post as well...)
I've been pretty silent lately, but that's mainly because I had so many things partially done, and I was a bit reluctant to discuss all the half-done-ness. I've been knitting, reading, cooking, thinking, and opining a lot on Twitter and Facebook. Half-baked thoughts seem appropriate for 140-character bursts on the spur of the moment.
Here's what I've finished since Thanksgiving: two stories for Knotions.com (which should appear in the next couple of months), my lopi-esque pullover (I'm hoping to get all the colorwork ends weaved in and a little blocking done in the next few days, so I can wear it to Reno over Christmas--photos forthcoming), a gift scarf, and this pattern. I've also tried no-knead bread two ways, done the East Bay Christmas Bird Count and gotten two colds, continued to teach knitting at the drop-in center and contributed to their Christmas lunch for clients. Also wrote a book proposal for my job, which unfortunately didn't get greenlighted. I'll just have to come up with some more book ideas.
Here's what I've started since Thanksgiving: two pairs of mitts, one reasonably well along. I swiped pretty stitches from a couple of sock patterns to adapt to them, so they're fun.
I hope you are all well and enjoying the holiday season.
