Spring has Sprung

And it's time to stop pouting and get back to it.

I have shamefully neglected updating this and the only way to remedy that is to write something, no matter how inconsequential.

There has been LOT of knitting and even some finishing. In particular this:
Became this:
And here is a close up of the edge.

This was and awesome knit. I am thinking about making another one. Just as soon as I finish a few other things.

I have three pairs of socks on the needles. Two are second socks. The other is a pair of Hogwarts socks that I'm knitting two at a time.

I think that I want to spend this year knitting more out than in - So I need to tally up all the outs and all the ins and then find a widget that I can put on here that will report on how successful I am. I was doing pretty well until the last four weeks. I bought yarn for three sweaters: a Bohus, an entrelac sweater I've admired for sometime and a present for my mother.

I am also spinning up some of the fiber I've had in my stash for years. I'm not sure how that counts, since it's both in and out, but I can't wait to finish the spinning so I can start the knitting.

Next update will include pictures of current knitting, perhaps a brag post of all the other things I've finished the last few months and the initial confessions on the yards in and out year to date.
