Let's See How It Goes

I remember feeling so disappointed when some of the bloggers who I discovered years ago stopped blogging. Most of them did that thing where they would post only sporadically, and then would officially sign off or just disappear. My blog has never been that focused where I felt it was a burden as most of the "retired" bloggers would often profess to feeling. I just haven't felt the motivation. I really have enjoyed the interaction with other knitters though, so I'm going to give it another try, and I'll see how it goes.

I have been knitting quite a bit since September, mostly small stuff....OK, only small stuff. Back in November, I knit the Green Forest headband for Paige, which was really fun to knit, with just enough variety in stitches to keep it interesting.

 Then, during Christmas vacation, I knit the Through the Woods  Neckwarmer. It was fun to knit too although I'm not sure how much use Paige will get out of it. She's complained that it's so cold riding her bike to class in Davis, which I'm sure is true. It's definitely "California cold" up there, but I think the complaints were more directed toward getting to take a car up there than for me to "fix" her chilliness.

In non-knitting news, our little beagle puppy, Rolly, who broke his leg last spring, has turned into a huge, gangling guy. He's a typical beagle: good-natured, stubborn, and always ready for fun. Gidget tolerates his antics quite well, and sometimes, even joins in.

The beagles look so cute! I laughed when I read about the attempt to take a car to school -- ahhhh, I remember those antics well.

It's so nice to see you back. And your knits are beautiful!

Welcome back. I have missed you.

You are so lucky that your daughter wants you to knit for her (mine rarely does).

And the puppy has turned into a beautiful dog!

Welcome back to blogland. I do understand the blogger doldrums. Mostly, I discipline myself to do the Fave Fives and hope to have one other post up--maybe about knitting.

LOVE that headband. I might make up some to sell--they look like a fun easy knit.

Cute try, Paige :)

I'm glad you're back. I feel much the way you do when bloggers drop of the earth, and then I went and did the same thing. The thing is, it's a great way of keeping a diary of sorts that gets input from other like-minded people. I certainly enjoy going back in time to see where my focus was directed. :)

Welcome back. There is no rule that we have to strictly talk about knitting, if that makes blogging more enticing.
