Time to Get Back on this Horse

I been absent far too long and life is much to short to waste.

Summer and Fall recap: We had a great summer! In July we met family in Cape Cod and spent a week together. It was the first time there for all of us so it was all new and no one was bored. I have a lot of great photos but none are available right now so they will have to come later.

In early November we took Joyce to Buffalo to see cousin Junior. It was the first time I had ever been there but it was such a quick trip that I didn't get to see much. I didn't see the city, the lake or the falls. That will all have to wait for another trip with more time and better weather.

I've been knitting steadily all this time and finished a number of projects.

In June I finished the Aeolian Shawl.

Then I made Girasole as a shawl. I haven't blocked it yet but here's a partial photo:

While I was working on this shawl I started and finished a smaller shawl project, The Feather Duster Shawl. This one was small and quick. I don't have a finished photo of it either (I'm really slacking in the photo department) but here's a partial:

I started another Curved Shawl with Diamond Edging from Victorian Lace Today for a friend and I really need to get back to work on it. But I been busy making slouchy berets and cowls for myself and friends. Right now I'm working on the second mitt of a pair for DH. They're the Flip Top Mitts by Susan Wolcott of Y2Knit. They work up so fast I may have to make a pair for myself.
