Back in the saddle!

Ah, my poor neglected blog!

My last post was in October. I actually did complete most of the Christmas gifts I had planned, but not all. Sniff! But frankly, the holiday knitting burned me out. By the end, it had become a chore instead of something fun. I don't think I will attempt that again for a while. I still plan to knit gifts on some occasions, but not a huge mass of gifts all at once.

I didn't knit anything for about 4-5 months after Christmas. Part of it was the burnout, and part of it was that I finally GOT a JOB! After over a year of searching! It has been really great, but it also means a lot less free time. I also got freaking MARRIED in April. So yeah, there has been a lot going on, and knitting got left by the way side.

Still, I have had long breaks from knitting before, and I always come back to it eventually. It was no exception this time. I can tell when I am becoming "ready" to knit again, because I gradually start looking at other people's projects on their blogs again, fondling my yarn, imagining projects that would be fun, etc.

So now I'm working on a pair of socks. It is going really well, but sloooowly. I just don't have as much time anymore. Before I had the job, I could sit around and knit all day. Ah, well - it is still really nice to be back in the saddle.

I plan to put up some pictures soon - I've got the socks in progress, I'm working on some gifts for a baby shower, and I've made some nifty yarn acquisitions. I know that I don't have that many visitors to this blog, but for those that are reading this, thanks for your attention and patience, I promise you some yarn porn in the near future!!!
