Checking in for the first time in a month or two. Everytime I come I'm amazed at how much this place as grown. It's amazing! :)
So I figured I'd post to let ya'll know I'm still alive.
Life has been good, not as much knitting as I'd like though (problems with the hands- knitting & 2+ hours of intense piano practice a day is NOT a good combination).
Have been doing quite a bit of sewing and some spinning though. Getting kinda good at sewing, learned how to put in a zipper this summer. :P Making some skirts and just finished a dress out of some gorgeous fabrics (pics to be posted on my blog as soon as I remember to do it, lol). I'm spinning a worsted weight 2 ply out of some GORGEOUS multicoloured wool/silk I bought at a fair last year. Loving working with it, it's the nicest stuff evah.
Still carding on my lovely frike as well. Working on an alpaca/mohair blend, hopefully will become a shimmery silvery-grey shawl at some point (preferrably spun and knit by me before I die, lol).
And hmm... well school starts in a week, and I'm beginning to freak cause I turn 17 in 2 months. haha. Kinda weird, I joined this forum when I was what... 14? Sheesh. Been a long time. But I'm just as LOTR-obsessed as ever, hahaha. :P
Wish I could keep up with the forums more.

Glad to know how you're doing. I've been checking your blog every now and then. Have you finished the cardi yet? The in-progress pictures are all beautiful and inspiring.

The only thing you smoked was the tires on your bike. Life was so simple and carefree, but the thing I remember the most was wanting to grow up."

Yes - I've been checking your blog, and you haven't been posting. I assume this means you're having fun.

Hi SE! Great to see you back here! I'm sure I'm not the only one who has missed your smiling face! I've been checking your blog every now and then, too, and thought that you must have been real busy. But that's ok! How it should be at your age! Don't stay a stranger on here, now!

Hi, S.E.. Nice to hear from you.

Barbara

Healthy conservatism promotes the continuity of civilization, the importance of community, the dangers of thoughtless change. It does not, or should not, assert the right of white, Christian heterosexual males of a certain age to limit the rights of everyone else. The past 100 years of social history has been dedicated, on good days, to constraining the dominance of this minority. Yesterday was a good day: J.Ibbotson, June 29/05, on the passing of the same-sex marriage bill.

Hi SE, good to see you postin again. Did you ever get the sleeves in the blouse? It sure is nice looking!

I have always wanted to play the piano, but every time we moved I got a new teacher that would start me over! My right wrist would go "pop" when I did stacato (sp?) and I had a teacher that accused me of not practicing enough! Wrist still pops 50 years later! Amazing the things we remember from our childhood!

Hi Sarah,
Zola and I were talking about you just yesterday. She had heard from Pinky Yarn and we bother were wondering how you were doing.
Nice to have you pop in.

auw. :) you all remember me. I feel so loved. :)
TY for the replies. :)
Nope cardi isn't done yet.... it will be someday. And then I'll throw the hugest party ever. Haven't got the sleeve in either, I'm stumped on it. I'll probably take it by my NSLYS and see if they can help me with it.
Shalee- lol my wrist pops sometimes, usually cause it gets locked when I'm doing like octave runs or something equally terrifying... and then I stop and shake it out and it's like POP. I think it's cause of my technique though.
Nice to hear from all of you as well! I will try to post more often.
