Crawling back into the Blog

Me with Peggy wearing our Downton Hats
I haven't posted for over a month and I have come to the conclusion that working for a living is intrusive into my knitting and my blogging! I have a great job (which I started in December), but I am exhausted by the time I get home from work. In the last month, though, I got incredibly sick with some kind of virus and am still coughing up a storm.  And I have taken two vacations. One to see a long-lost found-again friend and the other to Albuquerque.

Ken and I went to the western slope (Colorado) a couple of weeks ago to visit my old friend Peggy. We figured out that we haven't seen each other for 30 years (yikes!). Peggy moved to southern Colorado and then to Alaska which is how we lost contact with each other. And then Facebook was invented! Peggy was able to track me down when she moved back to Colorado. We used to be single together as well as play softball. It is always great to get back in touch with old friends (Not that we are old, but our friendship is!) I gave her one of my Downton hats and I am wearing the other one. Seems appropriate.

I am not even knitting that much, however I have completed another Downton hat and a pair of socks. I have also started a sweater four times now, and I am going to rip it out and start it again. What a pain in the @$$! When in Albuquerque, I did buy some purple double knit, but I am going to try again. I'll post some updated knitting pictures soon.

Back to the needles.
