Hello there little blog! I TOTALLY forgot about you.

Slowly, very slowly...

... creeps the garden snail! Little by little I begin to knit again. I have a large project in store (a wedding gift for some very dear friends) but while I was waiting for the yarn to arrive, I knit up this little guy:

Pattern: Easy-Care Cacti by Carol Meldrum and Julie Marchington
Yarn: The nylon yarn I inherited. :D
Needles: 7
Mods: Um, this is kind of the pattern. I basically looked at a picture and made it up as I went.

My in-laws bought a place around the corner from us so they could come stay as long as they wanted without feeling like they were overstaying their welcome (they never have). Since it's a part-time residence, they can't really have plants. I thought this would be an amusing little housewarming present. It was. They liked it!

The gift yarn has arrived - bare swish worsted from Knit Picks. The swatch is YUMMMMM. Washed and dried it is SO SOFT. I can't wait to start knitting this gift!

PS - I hope you all are doing fantastically! I check in on your blogs as often as I can... which isn't all that often with two 14month olds running around. But know that I do try to keep up and I follow many of your projects - which in turn inspires me to knit again! So I must add - Thank you for the inspiration!

Whooooaaaa Mama.

Oh boy did my knitting mojo come back. I started perusing potential gifts to knit for a friend's wedding and WHAMMO.

Now I just need more time. Whoever made the day only twenty four hours long was certainly not a knitter. Much less a knitter with small children!

I shall be back. With pictures.
