Well, hello again. You’re looking awfully dashing there. I haven’t seen you for ever!
Yes, well, mea culpa and all that. In a little over a week I’ll be handing in a fully revised 80k+ draft that looks nothing like it did 4 months ago. You can understand how something like that would put a major stop to everything and sundry. There has been very little knitting, but I am up to shawls 8 and 9 of my 10 Shawls in 2010 quota (when I finally update my side bar), and I should have progress pictures for everything when I have time to breathe next weekend (and I am so looking forward to next weekend. It’s like a mirage in the desert at the moment. But I’m hoping soon it will start looking a little more solid).
But now… I’m celebrating post 300. I should have been here months ago. Really! But guilt free blogging meant that I wanted to have something to talk about before I actually posted. But, I got nothing. I just missed you all instead. I’m really looking forward to the resumption of regular services come mid-November, just in time for the sun and the summer. I haven’t quite made it down to the beach yet, but I’m hoping to rectify that situation soon (one more week… that’s my mantra), and get some serious knitting done. And seeing friends, and being social. (Social?! What’s that?!)
I’ll save the long, boring, reflective post until the end of December. Right now I’m celebrating my last ton of posts, and toasting to the next 100. Thanks for sticking with me and reading. I’ve been terrible with the posting and the reading of blogs myself in the last few months – I’m going to have to schedule at least 4 days to catch up with everybody’s news. And, to say thank you and hooray, there is, as always, a goodie draw. You know the deal. Leave a comment, and I’ll draw from those who have posted on the 8th, and send something nice your way.
So who’s still here? Anybody?
I’ll see you all properly and with something intelligent to say on the 12th! *waves*
(I leave you with my Emily Shawl from Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010 – in Knitabulous fiftyfifty Tokyo Rose from the Black Japan yarn club. Seriously a stunning colour and beautiful pattern. I’m going to make another in Morris & Sons empire, just to see how it looks in a 2ply. I’m optimistic…
