What's this silliness

about knitting from your stash? If you use your stash, there's nothing available for those late night, wee early hours of the morning knitting urges. Sadly, the 24 hour yarn store is still in the future--well, except for Wal-Mart.

Some ladies on the blog Good-Natured Ribbing have come up with an alternative to the suggestion that we knitters should be knitting from our stash--Expand Your Stash. Click the button on the side of this post, and you'll be taken to an explanation of this newest KAL. I think it's one we all can enjoy.

I'm back

Ah, yes. I've been reminded that I've not posted in a while (thanks Monica). Things are well. It just seems as though I have been busier than usual with writing and editing books, researching future projects, and yes--knitting.

I've been participating in a Tote Exchange and just today put the final touches on the bag itself. It's mostly my design, or what I'm calling Lily M's after my late knitting buddy. This is my first foray into design, and though this one is pretty basic, it certainly spurred me to think about doing other projects. As soon as my camera batteries are recharged, I'll post a photo.

I've also been working on the Einstein coat. I'm probably not going to get it finished before it's too warm to wear it, but I'm already feeling a sense of accomplishment. This is the first coat I've made.

The Maura sweater is finished, except for putting it together. All in all, I'd have to say that I've had a productive few months, knitting wise anyway.
