OMG! Yes, I'm still here. I have not abandoned the blogging world. So much has happened since October. We have elected a new President....yipee! I am so so happy that the Bush era is finally over. Now for the clean-up. I watched the movie "W" this past week and if there is any truth to it, it has totally validated my opinion why we are at war and that he IS a total idiot. Well on to other news.

Thanksgiving was wonderful. I spent it with my boyfriend and his family. Fabulous food and conversation. We finished the evening off with going to the cinema to see the new James Bond movie. I just love Daniel Craig as Bond. Quantum Solace was good but in keeping with sequels, Casino Royale was better.

Christmas was a disaster. You see, here in the Seattle area, we don't have white Christmases. For some reason, I got to experience one. ACK! With all the hills and the people that surely do not know how to drive in it, that is a recipe for disaster. The plan was to spend the day with my boyfriend at my family's in Edmonds. NOT!!! The city was paralyzed. Our mayor would not salt or use de-icer on the streets due to the sea life. HELLO! There is salt water in the Sound........
Enough said. So, I spent my first Christmas totally alone and snowed in.

This past week I have had a new experience. BPPV Not fun at all. For all of you that have this, you understand. I have been off work due to this and will try to get back this week. But, I have been knitting!!

I did get to the Madrona FiberArts Fest this weekend. Lovely exhibits and booths as always. Running into fellow knitters and spinners that you know from the online communities and meeting new ones is always fun. I did get a chance to have a friend take photos of me in my Central Park Hoodie that I finished last fall.

My friend Debbie models her finished fair isle sweater. She did a wonderful job! It looks fabulous.

Ta Da! More finished objects.......

The Scrunchable Cowl done with Malibrigo worsted in UW Husky colors...Woof Woof!

Reading Mitts done with Cascade Cloud 9, a merino angora blend. Love the halo from the angora. These look so Victorian.

These were my first completed Fair Isle project. I think they turned out fabulous! They are the Herringbone Mittens I just love the black & white.

Last but not least, some yarny goodness. One of my purchases at the Madrona FiberArts Fest. Chameleon Colorworks Footsie in the Flamingo Sunrise colorway. What a way to get in the spring mood. Can't wait to knit up some socks in this.

In closing, I hope it isn't as long between blogs this next time. I do apologize to all my readers. I did notice some of you stopped following me. Hopefully, you will return. Thanks to all of you that have stuck around.

Until next time, Knit on!
