Happy Valentine's Day!

DH doesn't buy into the holiday, but it's full of warm feelings anyway.

I have been very busy on the Knitting front:
I joined the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin' Sock Club, and my first package arrived two weeks ago. The yarn is gorgeous, of course, and I am hard at work on the first sock. The pattern moves quickly, too, so I'm not bored or allowing myself to get distracted.

I made an Unoriginal Hat (charted by the Yarn Harlot):

The yarn was given to me on Christmas Eve, and when I visited friends on Christmas Day (including the guy who gave me the yarn), I already had the hat done. I'm sure I have the band at home, but I remember that it's 100% wool, hand-dyed from a boutique in NYC. I'll figure it out, I'm sure.

I have also been plowing through on my father's sweater, but it's taking me so long, and I get easily distracted. *Sigh.

I also knit up all the pieces for the Winter Berries bag by Noni. I have yet to felt them, though, since I only have access to coin-operated washing machines, and I want to do my first felting project right, and then I can adapt it to what I have.

Things have been happy-busy at work. My responsibilities have been added to, so I have less free time (aka blogging time) and I still don't want to sit at a computer when I get home in the evenings. I have joined a yoga class, and I babysit often, so my time is still well-spent.

I will be back.
