It's been so long since I blogged I am not really sure where to begin... It is not that I haven't had things I want to say. Just truly haven't had the time, or the desire if the time is there.

I have been knitting quite a bit. I am so close to finishing Smoda's blanket that I am having a hard time putting down the knitting. My goal was to finish it before the end of January and I believe I will be able to do it. My only concern is I must border the blanket with a crocheted edge and I am not sure if I have enough of each color. Oh well, I will know in the next few days.

I have also been reading lately...well that is not quite true. I read all the time, but lately I am reading more. My current book is World Without End. I am enjoying it as much as I did Pillars of the Earth years ago. Medieval history is so fascinating.

My big news is that I will be attending a knitting retreat. Not just any knitting retreat, but Sheri from the Loopy Ewe is hosting Spring Fling '08 in St. Louis. I can hardly wait. I am still pinching myself that RacerDad was okay with me attending. Especially since it is in the middle of baseball season. With three boys playing ball, two at the select level, we have loads of games and practices.

Well, I feel better now. At least I have updated something!

Sounds good...I learned to knit and it took me three years to finish the baby blanket I was working on. So my baby came home in a store bought blanket and what I was knitting saw the next baby home. : )

I've wondered what was going on with you. Sometimes life is just more exciting than online-ness. I'm glad that this was the case for you! Have fun at the retreat!

Good for you. I hope you have a most wonderful time at the Spring Fling retreat.

Now, I can't wait to see a photo of that blanket you have been working on.

My problem is I get so busy knitting, I don't give myself enough time for reading. So when I finish a few projects, I basically just sit and read, no knitting allowed. LOL

Have a great day. :)
