She's baaaackkkk.......

No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth; time just seems to get away from me more and more these days. If it's this bad at 50, I don't want to think about how fast time will fly by when I'm 80, provided I make it that long!

I have accomplished something in the last couple of weeks; I finally bought the yarn to make my ISE3 partner's scarf. You can check out the yarny goodness in the picture above. The color's not quite accurate, even though I played with it in Picture Manager, and you really can't see the depth of shading that's there, either. Nice stuff!

I've started working on the scarf pattern that I've selected to use, but haven't gotten far enough into it to know whether it's what this yarn wants to be. Stay tuned... (and I promise, it won't be another two weeks before I post again!)

Rainy Days and Fridays

Well, I've finally done it - joined the blogging world, that is. Today is wonderfully cool and rainy, a great day to stay inside. So I figured, why not just bite the bullet and start my own blog. Truth be known, I've been considering it for some time, but couldn't come up with a good title. I don't know how GOOD this title is, but it does list my favorite addictions/hobbies/activities. And it also has a nice, rhyming rhythm to it, don't you think?

Anyway, here's where you can read about my ongoing knitting, crocheting, spinning, sewing and quilting projects, intermittent actual FO's (finished objects), and my frequent visits to the frog pond. I'll also probably talk about my upcoming trip to Italy (in April 2007) with my church choir, and the excitement and anxiety that entails. There will most likely be the occasional political rant, personal whine, and/or soap box pronouncement, as well.

Since today is DH's birthday, I need to get something "cake-ish" baked, so I'd best sign off. Stay tuned...
