Long Time Gone

Lots of craziness in our lives lately including a wedding for DD, we just gained another son and couldn’t be happier.    During it all the knitting went on just maybe not as fast as we might have liked. 

 Recently I acquired a beautiful Blue Moon yarn called River Rocked that is on a  base of silk, merino, and sea cell.  I am making Hilary Smith Callis’s Citrus shawl and will try to keep this one for myself.  Have completed more since this pic but here’s a quick look.   
Just recently I have begun an item for the granddaughter of a dear friend, I was so excited that it was tough to choose just one pattern to begin.  It is rare that I get to do any children’s items so …well you know.  Any how I decided to go with the Tiny Tea Leaves cardi by Melissa LaBarre.  Since it calls for a worsted weight yarn things are moving along nicely and it is a top down pattern so that saves finishing fuss later on.  I decided to use Madelinetosh Fragrant and am pretty happy with how it is coming along. What do you think?

 
While the newlyweds were on their honeymoon we got the pup and bunny so here is a token pic of said pup enjoying the sun while I got some knitting time in.  She is a sweet girl and we love when she comes to stay.
