Sorry, been naughty.

Sorry I haven't posted here in a good long while. I spend alot of any free time I get now on Ravelry and crocheting. I started knitting again, re taught myself casting on and knit maybe ten rows or so. I want to learn, it's just for whatever reason hard to pick up this time.

I've recently found Knit Picks. That site is a diabolical vortex on the wallet, but the yarns are oh so pretty! I just got some lace weight, becautiful color though now I worry that I didn't get enough before they discontinued the color...........sigh. I also just picked up some sock yarn to try out, swince they had a sale.

I started a shawl as a gift for a friend next month. It's called an Apple Blossom Shawl, and already I modified the middle part because I didn't like the stitch there! So far it's coming out nicely, I think it might have been nicer in a lighter weight, but she should like it. The color is a really rich dark, almost navy blue.

I will try to remember to post pictures of it once it's closer to being done. Not that I have any bonafied followers/readers yet anyhow.

Busy weekend coming up, I might be trying to get in on a snb group soon too. Now I need to crash. Night!
