Is this like riding a bicycle?

Once you get back on, it's like you've been doing it forever? Sure hope so, because, it's certainly been awhile. Boy do I suck at blogging. I thought about just officially stopping, but decided against it. Probably the Catholic guilt thing getting the best of me. Plus, I'm getting some serious grief from a couple of people about not staying up on this. I'm telling myself that work has slowed down some, so hopefully I'll have time to blog a bit more. I'm saying that as there are about 8 stacks of charts sitting in my office at work for me to deal with this weekend. But that's for Sunday...it's still Saturday night. So off we go, then.

I've been a bit of a fiber/craft slut lately and went on a little crochet binge for awhile. I made a bag and have started an afghan. But, alas, I missed my true love, knitting. How could I have strayed? I do have to admit, crochet is a fun mistress. But knitting...ahh...knitting...

Today I finished a pair of socks. The March Rockin' Sock club sock...Leafling.



They're from medium weight, and I'm more of a lightweight kinda girl, but sometimes it's good to broaden your horizons, right? I loved the pattern and colorway. Now to get cracking on May and July's socks. And just because that's not enough, I started a new baby sweater today. I have a couple of friends/co-workers that have had babies lately, and I'm a little behind on the gift knitting.

There's so much more to update y'all on. What would you like to hear about next?

Hooray! An update! I'm so excited to see something new! :) I want to know about what you're doing for the ravelympics and see more cute pics of Catie and Jack! Great to have you back, Jocele!

Hey, Jocele -- this is Chris from the cruise. I hope you, George, and the various animals are well. I too have files sitting here this weekend to work on, although, for a bankruptcy lawyer, it's just about money -- lots of it, in this case, but no one's health on the line -- whenever I think I have a hard job, I think of people with jobs like yours.

Say hi to George for me (I don't know how to e-mail him directly). I hope he didn't lose the mortgage money in Vegas and that the produce stand he was working on on the ship came out the way he wanted.

Hey Jocele... how about you make with some updated kid pictures, huh?

Glad to see that though the charting and blogging have suffered, the knitting goes on! I'd say you have your priorities straight.

My good friend has entered an Ugly Kitchen contest, so I'm trolling for votes to help her win. Check my blog & thanks for your support--she really does have the worst one!
