I've been a bad knitting blogger. The best I can say for myself is that no knitting has occurred over the past few weeks to blog about. I've been a little distracted because of this:

I'm learning that there just isn't enough time to go to work, plan a wedding, AND work on that half-finished pair of socks. I guess this rules out an intricate lace-weight wedding shawl getting done in time...

The Gift of Knitting

I finished Andy's hat and the scarf for my Gma (the last minute knitting from the previous post) in time for Christmas, making both me and them happy. I haven't managed to snap a photo of Andy wearing the hat, but here is one of my Gma keeping warm in Gettysburg with her bright red scarf.

Apparently, more members of my family have caught on about my knitting ... habit ... and gave me fiber-related gifts for Christmas. My cousins gave me Kool Aid and my Gma bought me undyed yarn to use it on. Yay! My sisters got me a knitting bag (which may look like a normal bag to you non-knitters) and a neat plastic tote for small projects.

And that is also my current work in progress shown there. My friend, Jane, and I had this crazy idea that we could knit an afghan by the beginning of March. This wouldn't be too bad, except that we are both grad students. So far, I am eleven 6"x6" squares into the project and forsee lots more blue squares in my future.
