Just Checking In

I am sorry, so sorry that I have not blogged in a long time! Life has been terribly, incredibly, unbelievably, insanely busy. I shall say no more about that...don't want to bore you. I just wanted to check in and let you know I am still here and well.

Sock #1 is finished and #2 is well on its way. I would be further along on that project, but I had to stop and fill some orders that came in for hair sticks, my crocheted hair accessory organizer and the crocheted stone necklaces I make. In fact, I had a hair stick order from Malaysia. How wild is that? So far I have my items not only in various U.S. states, but also in Australia, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, England and now Malaysia. That is just so neat! Amazing how the internet can connect people.

But back to the socks...I think I have conquered the continental style of knitting. It really does go faster. I also have a theory now that continental knitting lends itself well to slippery needles like the KnitPicks. Before, I liked wooden best, but the better I get at continental, the more I see why some folks like these slick DPNs. However, I think I will always be a fan of the old-fashioned wooden needles. Someday I will be the proud owner of some needles like these



and/or hooks like these.

Wow, how exciting to be an international artist!! That's really great! I have some friends in Malaysia, I hope to visit them someday.

I'm glad to hear you think continental is faster, since that's the way I learned. I haven't tried any bamboo needles yet, but was going to get some when I try my hand at socks. But first I have to finish a scarf.

I adore my bamboo knitting needles. Maybe I should try the knitpicks ones...but I too think I will always love the feel of bamboo.

Can't wait to see your socks. Glad to see you around. :) I've missed you.
