where has the time gone?

I was going to be SUCH a good correspondant, and post at least weekly.....

It has been 16 days since my first post...hang on, this is soundung like a somethings-anonymous meeting!! LOL

Anyway, OTN...(on the needles) I have a KAL (knit-a-long) shawl, and KAL socks, my first pair of socks (still waiting at the second heel!!), a sheep, a witch, a monkey and while not OTN, I DO have a duck that is waiting to have his pieces finished.

I also admit to having a bear in pieces waiting to be sewn and stuffed.

I LIKE knitting toys, they use relatively little wool, they are MOSTLY bright, and they are relatively easy, except the monkey, he needs 4 !! fingers on each hand/foot.

I also ventured to my first SnB meeting last weekend...everyone else was knitting these wonderful projects, and I was knitting......a sheep.

Needed to be a very easy project to do on the train ride to town.

Am also looking forward to some serious stash enhancement soon, have $100 in savings that I am looking forward to spending, at the moment, looks like on wool, as my passion for patchwork is non-existant....but that could be because my sewing machine died, and I have no inclination to go looking for another one.

well, off to the front room, I have a brand new light for craft, and I want to finish my KAL socks, my feet are COLD!!
