Breaking the Silence

It's been too long. I've enjoyed my summer, I've started and finished quite a few projects, and I guess now it's time to start talking about them again.

This will be brief, I don't need to dive into this with some huge post. I was told pictures and captions are acceptable, so that sounds like a great way to get back into the groove. Thanks Kelli!

I had to check my Ravelry page to see exactly how many projects I did over the summer, so here's the list: (hmm, after checking it seems that I haven't registered all the projects, so I'll post the ones most notable)

The most recently completed was the Lotus Blossom Tank from Best of Interweave Knits. All of the details are listed on Rav so I won't take the time to duplicate that info here.

Prior to that I completed the Lillian Tank. This came out really well and I incorporated some newly learnt (yes, that's on purpose) mad crochet skills. I still need a model shot of that one, but I've been wearing it quite a bit, so that shouldn't be difficult. We all know self portraits ALWAYS come out super flattering so hang in there for this one!

I need to check my journal because I made a cabled tank too and that isn't in Ravelry. I've also made a hooded baby blanket but that also isn't posted since I haven't gifted it to the recipient yet. Those details will follow.

Knitterpalooza was a few weeks back, and I still need to put a complete list of all attendees (swimmers) up on Rav and I'll post it here as well. I was sick last week and while I managed to do some spinning and crafting in that time, I avoided the computer.

I will also take pics of some contract spinning I did for a friend, and will post those here to brag of my newly acquired skill: Navajo plying. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous (straining to pat myself on the back), the colors are to die for, and it's super soft and smooshy. I have two more bobbins to finish up and hope to deliver that work next week.

I'm off to the lake this weekend, it's that time again to clean and put away the boat and we'll be celebrating my FIL's 70th birthday. Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for checking in on me!
