Sorry I have been completely MIA lately. Things haven't been so easy for me for the past several weeks, but I'm pleased to say that the negative forces in my life have been negotiated away and I am ready willing and able for a new start. The even better news is that I've actually found that new start and rather like it.

I've also gotten the crochet bug. I learned after learning how to knit, mainly to do some decorative edges and the like, but last winter actually made a scarf. Today, I started another crochet scarf. One pattern repeat in and I am so down with this - the pattern, from is amazing.

I have about 10 rows to go on the baby blanket, which works out great since we're leaving on Wednesday morning, after which I will officially be out of time. I think I may wash and block it there, as I won't see the recipient until Christmas Day. Whew.

Socks on hold, but they may be my travel piece, along with the crochet. Green scarfy is almost done.

More when I have the chance, but I'm still standing. And standing proud.

Its been some time

I realize that its been many moons since I've last posted. Time just gets away from me these days.

In that time, Mike celebrated his 30th birthday...

...and he was a real trooper. I'm so proud of him. He's made so many changes in his life in the time that I've known him and he deserves whatever goodness may come his way.

In other news, I'm still knitting though I am embarassed to show another progress shot of the baby blanket. I just want it done. I know I can finish it, its just that I keep forgetting to pick it up while I'm sitting on the couch.

And last night my sweetie took me to see Alvin Ailey at the CityCenter. What an amazing show. If any of you NYCers are in any way interested in modern dance, GO SEE ALVIN AILEY. Their run just started, so there's still time to buy a ticket. Its worth whatever you pay. I never wanted last nght to end - it was magical. And, we lucked out with an aisle seat with no seat in front of it for my 6'4" stud. What are the odds?
