Yes, I know it's been months. But I have been using my time productively. Honest.
Since we last connected, I've hiked through enchanting Alaskan terrain covered in waterfalls and glaciers and lakes.
I've traveled to Peru for a volunteer medical mission, a life-changing experience if ever there was one....
Hiked the Sacred Valley Inca Trail and watched the sunrise over Macchu Piccu.
And now back home, reinvested in myself...have begun a rigorous training program towards a triathlon next summer.
I'm feeling great, feeling strong, and yes, I am still knitting. Knitbud Ruth and I are doing a mini-KAL...it's her first grown-ass woman sized sweater...yes, it's the ubiquitous February Lady Sweater....I know, I know, I started one of these a year ago...but it just wasn't a good marriage of pattern and yarn at the time...this one..much improved! I'm using Elann.com's luscious Highland Wool in Calypso Green (which is actually somewhat greener than it shows in the photos)
purchased during one of their amazing bag sales a year or more ago...and if you noticed the clever stitch markers between each 7 stitch lace repeat..why they are nothing more than cut up drinking straws (because who has eleventyjillion matching stitch markers?)...clever idea culled from the FLS forum on Ravelry.
So, I'm back...not sure how frequently I'll be posting, or what the content will end up being...but I've missed the blogging...until next time...
