Has it really been a MONTH

I think this is the longest I’ve gone without posting in three years! I’ve been on Holiday (sort of) the last two weeks. I managed to actually take about one week of that and then worked the rest of that time or cleaned the house from top to bottom to get it ready to go on the market. The latter being quite stressful, but the most prudent and responsible thing to do given that work will be had for 2010, but NO idea how much it will be. Not sure how it will turn out in the end. But I will be OK. I’ll keep you posted.

I have managed to make headway on Nihon homework. Not as much as I had hoped, but progress. My crotchet vest is ready to go and I have the first two sweaters recorded. I have several swatches for my final project done for review and comments. I’m not as far along on Sweater 6 as I had hoped to be, which was front and back done. I ended up ripping out and re-swatching and re-drafting the pattern to fit the swatch that I liked. That set me back a week or so. Sometimes it just rolls that way. It’s a longer coat/cardigan (I know, WHAT am I thinking). The stock-n-knit stitch was just to heavy and boring. I’ve gone with a 3×1 rib that I think works well with the yarn from my stash – Rowan Tapestry. I have my ribbing swatch almost done. I’ll use my ribbing swatch to practice the grafting on of it onto the sweater.

In other news? Working with the doctor to sort out this fatigue thing. We’re going through a process of elimination. We know what it’s NOT at least.

A few photos from our much needed weekend at Rockaway Beach on the Oregon Coast. We had a lovely time relaxing and spending time with friends who have a house on the beach.
