The Slog and Fall

Hello!
Hope you're doing well and weathering the storms...all of them.  The weather here has been very warm, well hot!  The calendar says its Fall, I'm not convinced.    And just as my current project The Slog gets bigger, the temps outside won't get cooler.  I am enjoying this project don't get me wrong, but its taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r it seems to see much progress.  
 The Slog is formally known as the Flat White Wrap by C. C. Almon/JavaPurl Designs, it's part of an e-book of patterns Coffee with C.C. (and Dami Too) ~ Another 7 Pattern Caffeine Inspired Knitting Collection. It's a good thing the yarn is lovely to work with.  I'm using Manos del Uruguay Alegria in the Sand colorway. Here it is up close.  
One other project I'm working on is a pair of socks. I'm not really a neon girl, but I do love this pink. It's so neon, it doesn't even photograph well.  This is a slow go too. I don't know if I like knitting socks magic loop.  I think I prefer dpns.  I know...
What are you working on?  Any slog projects on your needles? 

Have a great week and I'll talk to you soon!

So it begins, again...

Hello,
As I sit to write this blog post it feels familiar and strange.   I've been a blogger before so it's familiar, that blog was where I blogged about my cardmaking and papercrafting adventures (fun times).  Now, I've slowed down the pace in my life a bit and have been bitten by the knitting bug.  Yes, I still papercraft and make cards, but not as much as I knit.  Knitting is a huge part of my life now and has been a healthy obsession.  If somehow you're reading this blog and don't knit, give it a try!  It will change your life!


Thank you for stopping by and giving me a look-see.  I hope you come back and share what you're working on, and see what I'm up to.  I can't wait to share my life and knits with you.

Bye for now!
