Obsessed knitting geek, mother, and science teacher - not necessarily in that order

Yes, I Fell Into the Pit...

known as Ravelry. Yes, I was sucked in by all the bells and whistles and, alas, let my poor blog fall to the wayside.

Well, I have decided to re-commit to my blog. With the end of the school year drawing to a close I see myself having plenty of time over the summer to post regular updates on my knitting and yarn acquiring adventures.

Like sparking up with an old flame, it is best not to try to make up for all that lost time and rather just pick up right where we left off.

My current WIPs:

Mr. Greenjeans from Knitty- Cascade 220 Autumn heather. My first adult sweater - this is for myself and so far so good. Just one and a half sleeves left to go.
Basic socks in Online - some cotton blend - got this for Christmas from my MIL - so cute - perfect for summer socks!
Noro silk garden striped scarf - inspired by Brooklyn tweed. this scarf has sparked my love affair with Noro and triggered me to start a Lizard Ridge Afghan - more on that another time.
An FO: These are the Berry Season socks from Two-Socks-at-a-Time. They were both knit at the same time on one long circ. It was fun to do and I am glad I tried it because now I know that I am an old-fashioned gal and prefer my trusty DPNs. Yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Lakeview.
