Life, rebooted

(Edited to add: I think I’m going to do my inbox a one-time favor and just publicly say thank you SO MUCH to everyone who commented on the Cleopatra Wrap. All of the wonderful compliments and well-wishes really meant a lot to me during these past gross weeks.)

Well! That was longer, more stressful, and more lacking in the internet department than we expected. Fortunately, we’re all here safe and sound. The boxes are far from gone, but I kind of have a craft room now!

Jacob is all settled for summer camp and preschool in the fall, I continue my part time work tomorrow after a nearly 1-month hiatus (thank goodness), and someday my stash will even have a home. Things are still hectic and disorganized, but hoo boy are they getting better rapidly.

Including my knitting! I’ve had a terrible time knitting-wise, these last few weeks. I’ve started and ripped no fewer than 4 different socks. Frustrated by pooling semi-solid/shaded/whatever you want to call it sock yarn, I bought some Cascade Heritage in a beautiful solid blue-gray for another try at Rivendell. I think I have a winner, this time.

Keep your fingers crossed for me?
