Still around...

But not knitting much... although I see my slump coming to an end! I've been tending my tiny garden (which didn't do much), started a compost bin, cooking all the yummy stuff I've been picking up at the farmer's market and canning pickles, salsa, pasta sauce and plain tomatoes. But not much knitting... I even went to our LYS's annual sale and left without yarn! I have so much stash that I don't really need anything. I've picked out yarn (from my stash) and patterns to knit up a few baby things for a friend that's pregnant. I'm still working on my Lady February Sweater in Dream in Color Classy and have a few other things on the needles. I'm hoping to start a pair of socks for each of the kids and maybe Doug too!

Instead of knitting, I've been sucked into this...
It's the Bubble Dress from Oliver + S. I had looked at this pattern for a long time, but just couldn't spend the money on it (since it's been years since I've sewn any "real" projects.) BUT they had a no shipping special and I finally gave in. I decided to make this for a wedding that we attended over Labor Day weekend. It turned out so well! The instructions were fabulous and it was a lot of fun! I also got a pajama pattern and plan to make several pairs for the kids in some great flannel.
Now, for some knitting....
