Summer is Here!

Hi Everyone,
Now that summer is here, I thought I would give the blog a little bit of a lighter look. It was getting a little dreary with all that black, don't you think? Anyway, I certainly like the new look and I hope everyone who visits the blog will like it too. Also, I would love to hear if you have any other comments or if there are any other changes you would like to see. Can't wait to hear from you, now back to my regularly scheduled knitting.

Will This Ribbing Ever End?

So, as you all know I'm making the ZickZack Tunic (Ravelry Link) from the Spring 2009 issue of Interweave Knits. This tunic is knit from the bottom up and that means lots and lots of 2x2 ribbing, 5 and 1/2 inches worth to be exact and it took me forever to complete, but I did finally finish.... the ribbing that is! But, you know what the means right... yep, it means I now get to work on the lace which means I'm 1 step closer to having a finised object.... WOOHOO! Well that's it for now, back to the knitting. Talk to you all soon.... :o)

Back in the Game!

Wow, it's been a long time.... A really long time... Where has it all gone?! Oh wait, I know it's gone by in a hospital, but thankfully things are getting better. On Saturday, my father and I arrived in New York so he can finish his treatment. He's now in the hospital, has had one surgery, and on the road to recovery.. finally, thank God. So, guess what this means for me.... back to my knitting, which I have to be honest makes me a very happy camper. Now, I know there have been a few projects that were started... ahem (Said's Cabled Cardigan) but with this new mood I feel must come a new project. So, what's on the agenda you ask? It would be this:


This, ladies and gentlemen, is the ZickZack Tunic (Ravelry Link) and I absolutely love it! I've loved it since the day I saw it and of course, since I had some Knitpicks Gloss lace in a color they call Ultramarine on hand, I knew it was time to knit it. So far, I've completed the back and now I shall move forward to the front. Hopefully I'll have pictures of a finished object soon. Oh how fun that sounds, can't wait! Now, back to knitting...
