1/2 year gone bye.

Well- long time since posting.  I think about it a lot, but time just goes by.  Knitting is going.... today I went to knitmeter.com and put in all my projects and I have knitted 4547 yards this year.  Cool.  Maybe I'll hit 10,000 by year end.

I have a couple of wips-

1. Arrowhead shawl knit out of sunset fibers yarn in autmun colorway (looks like handspun though.)
2. Secret square for knit girlls afghan swap.
3. round the twist socks out of 3 ewes twisted in fiber.

I'm enjoying all these projects, but I just seem sluggish on the knitting right now.

I finished a daybreak shawl by Stephen West.  It is a beautiful shawl, but I have to say it was a boring knit. it is all stockenette with some slipped stiches, but nothing challenging.

I also finished Irving the icebox monster from Rebecca Danger's book The Big Book of Monsters. This was my second monster and I have to say I really enjoy knitting up these cute guys.  I still have to knit one for each of my children.  They are a bit upset that I haven't knit them any monsters yet.  I guess I can't blame them.

Well- gonna try to update more often. Time just seems to fly and now that the weather has finally gotten better, I hope to get some fishing in too.
