Long time no blog...

Hey there anyone out there...
Been spending most of my online time at KH and not here. I haven't tended to my blog because I am still depending on dh's computer for such things. I can't print, I can't edit pics... sigh. I finally called a place in town to take my computer to so it can get a shampoo and set. DH tried to tell me, "All I need to do..." blah blah blah and I nicely reminded him he has had 9 months and a deadline finally of the end of May, which passed. Glad I wasn't bleeding or something. Granted, radically different circumstances, but still. I am sick and tired of small things like this being brushed under the rug!
I have so many project's OTNs that I never get anything done. However, I have almost completed a "Gelato Purse" in Cascade 22o in apple green with matching mohair carried along with it. I ran out of the Cascae with half a strap and the 12 stitch flap left to complete. The pattern called for just one skein, and I seriously doubt my guage is off that much! I only need a few more yards to finish! I posted to KH for anyone possible having any rems they wannat sell/swap as well as the store I got it from (it's in Mpls which is 215 miles from here). I could just buy another skein and use it and the 80% rem ball #2 of mohair I have to make a matching small bag for inside the purse...but I don't feel like it.
I also have had the nagging reminder that I picked up some donated yarn from my local humane society late last summer to make some kennel blankets. Not that the stash was primo (a lot of crochet cotton in it /?/) but I don't want them to think I absconded with their yarn. Since my computer has been down, if they've tried to email me (how I got in touch initially), they wouldn't be able to get through. I have been busy all winter doing other projects such as baby blankets for a new nephew, santa hat and scarf for my other nephew who turned 1 on Christmas Day...yada yada, excuses excuses. I have also acquired a small pile of baby related projects. I have an interest in making a christening gown, some sweaters, a fun fuzzy bunting, a Blue Sky Alpaca's shirt dress...what's up with that. Even if I did get P, what with the gender specific clothes? whatever...
So, here's to updating my blog, and hopefully getting pictures on this crazy space...
Later all...

So sorry to hear about your computer woes - no fun to feel cut off like that. I love that you knit kennel blankets - those are the reason I started knitting again.
