I’m still alive!

Hi friends! I am indeed still alive and still working on projects here and there.

Knitting and crocheting have taken a bit of back seat for the past year. I’ve spent most of the past year and a half working on my first novel. It’s all written (yay!) and now I’m working on editing it. My goal is to have it ready to self-publish by the end of the year so I’ve been very excited about that.

Now, that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped knitting and crocheting entirely.┬áIn the past 6 or so months, I’ve crocheted 3 blankets and a dish towel and I’ve knit an infinity scarf for my sister. I’m also working on another mushroom blanket like the one I made my partner a few years ago and my sister has asked me to knit her some yoga socks so I still have a few projects on my plate.

Foxy baby afghan dark. I frickin LOVE how the colors turned out in this one! I’m very much considering trying this color combo (but swapping the black for a charcoal gray) on a scarf.

Foxy baby afghans

Foxy baby afghans – they were crocheted at the same time for a friend who is expecting twins in September. They have been designing the nursery for the babies with foxes and that has given some awesome color combinations.

I’m really happy with how all of the projects have turned out and I can see that my skills are definitely improving over time. Practice really does make perfect.

At some point I will attempt to take pictures of the mushroom blanket as I’m working on it. But for now, I leave you with a musical number that fits the title of this post:
