I didn’t fall off…

The face of the earth, but what a crazy month it’s been. I have been knitting, nothing major but I have completed a couple of pairs of socks. 3 pairs to be exact. And today I’m getting ready to leave for Stitches West. So a quick recap of my finished objects.

I plan to be back to more regular blogging soon.  I would dare to say that my work might slow down but since I was asked yesterday not to take my days off for Stitches 5 minutes before I left for the day, I don’t think that is going to happen any time soon.  The only thing I can hope for is to manage my time at home a bit better.  I need to get caught up on my house work and keep taking Maggie to the dog park as well as work on my knitting.  But since things have been so crazy personally and professionally, all I’ve done is knit.  Not that that is a bad thing.  Of course it wouldn’t hurt to stop knitting for myself and try to get some of my Christmas 2013 knitting done far in advance.  Ah, the best laid plans.  But for now, I’m off to pack my bag and charge my camera batteries for Stitches.
