One of the reasons I haven’t been posting as much — besides the trip to Maui, etc. — is that I learned how to knit a couple of months ago. So a lot of my free time has been spent knitting, though I don’t have a heck of a lot to show for it yet. (I have several unfinished items, though, because I tend to want to start a lot of new projects all the time.) Currently I am working on Soleil from Knitty.com, a nice camisole top, and I’m knitting it from Patons Grace mercerized cotton, in Azure. (See the photo on the left, showing my current progress. I’ve finished the lace at the bottom, and I am into the decrease rounds at the waist.)
The rest of the free time has been spent reading knitting blogs, boards like Craftster.org, and so on. It’s actually interesting how many knitting blogs there are, with people posting constant status reports on their projects, pictures of their latest yarn purchases, and so on. It’s making knitting more than an isolated, introverted sort of hobby; online knitters are very social.
Anyway, no fear, Slumberland will not become a knitting blog. But I will post a few things occasionally, and so I made a knitting category for this and future posts. Those who actually just want to read the knitting stuff can jump directly to that category page.
