getting back

getting back on the blog which is long over due! It is not that I haven't been having fun. It's not that I haven't been knitting. I have just been just too darn busy to get on the blog. This hat is a pattern that I had been wanting to try for a while and it was also my first cable knitting project ever (little yeah for me!) This is the greenery pattern which is available for free. I can't find the name of the yarn I used but I picked something that was a pretty generic 100% wool to be worked on size 7 needles as the pattern called for. It only took me just under a week of working on it when I could so it was a good amount of time that I will certainly make it again for a gift.

I really have never been quite as busy as I am right now. I have been busy and crazy at times when we are moving or going through exams when in school or things like that but this is the first time I just feel super busy and there is nothing in particular that I can point to to blame. People keep saying "welcome to your adult life" or "wait until you have kids". Gulp! Well, even though I am exhausted I do keep saying to everyone that at least it isn't that anything is "bad," just all happening at once. We have had lots of people visiting out of the blue which has also added to the chaos to have house guests on top of our schedules. We do have a very very fun one right now which is my very best friend from junior high. There was a time in our lives that you couldn't have pried us apart with a crow bar but we went to different high schools and colleges time and space drifted us apart. Even though we haven't spent more than a dinner once a year together in ages she has popped in our neck of the woods for almost a week as she is in the process of making a major life/career/location change and it is just a real joy and super easy to have her here. I couldn't say the cliche thing that it feels like no time has passed, but it does remind me of all of the reasons why we were so close and special to each other and makes me feel really lucky to have this time to reconnect.

Alright, I have to go figure out what I am going to wear for Picture Day at work tomorrow!

I hope in all the busyness you'll make it up here soon, I miss you!
