Another Year Gone

I can't believe my blogoversary is here again. I've been a very bad blogger over the past year. Even worse than I have been in a long time.

It's been so hot this summer so not a lot of knitting or spinning has been going on.

I'll try and be better in the future.

Mu daughter is coming for a visit next week so I'll have stuff to blog about and pictures of the little one. I am so excited I can hardly wait.

Not Bad!

I know it's been forever since I last blogged. Me very bad. I've just been so busy that I haven't had the time. Now we are in the middle of a disgusting heat wave here in Toronto and it's too hot for me to sit at the computer. However, I finished the sweater set for my grandson this weekend and I had to show it off.

This is the Dale of Norway Vancouver sweater. It's my first colour sweater and my first STEEKING!!!! That's what took me so long to finish it. I was freaking out about cutting the steeks. I took a steeking class towards the end of June and decided it was time to finish this. I am so happy with the way it turned out. Now I have to keep my fingers crossed it will actually fit the child it was intended for. If it doesn't I will pass it on to the baby that will be arriving sometime on September. I think the colours are alright for a boy or a girl. Now I'm trying to figure out what I will knit next. This colour stuff is addicting. Who knew!
