(Did you get the Portal reference?)
Yes, I'm still breathing. I'm sorry I have neglected you all! As usual, I don't have any real excuse, other than being lazy. I've been doing quite a lot of knnitting these past two weeks, but I've only mnaged to finsih the Ramona mittens. I haven't gotten around to taking a photo of them both together, so you'll have to do with the old photos again. I'm at work right now (it's a slow day!), so I can't get any new ones right now either. But I LOVE the mittens, and as we've had temperatures way below freezing these past few weeks, they have come in handy too.
Other than that I've mostly knit on the Silken Scabbard sweater, I'm a bit below the arm holes now and knitting my way towards the waist. So far it's looking really good, and I love working with this yarn! It's Rowan Silk Wool, which is a discontinued yarn unfortunately, and right now it looks like I have plenty of it! It's incredibly soft, but still very shiny from the silk, so I'm betting this sweater will look good :)
Yesterday I managed to break my hand bag! I ordered it with my very first KnitPicks order I think, and it has been perfect for me!
Tomorrow Thomas has his birthday, so we're going to celebrate a bit this weekend by making a cake and maybe playing a bit of board games as well. I'll try not to be away as long again!
