I'm a bad blogger...

I have been bad about blogging these past few weeks. It's been crazy at work and school and just in the world, am I right? Praise God, my hubby is home. He came home early Monday morning about 1:30 am. I was so glad to see him come home and I am so proud of him. He saved 63 lives! There are 63 people living today, who may not have been if it were not for my wonderful husband.

Ok, on to knitting...yesterday I bought enough yarn for three projects from the new Louisa Harding line. I'm going to be doing the seed stitch hat, the impressions hat and the sweater vest. I don't usually use the recommended yarn for a project, much less the same color, but they actually used MY colors. The only one I'm not doing in the same color is the impressions hat. I'm using a brown/gold colorway for that one. I wanted something more neutral. I'm hoping to have them all done before my trip to NY. The hats I want done for DC (23 days, but who's counting?).

I still haven't been able to use any of it. I've got to work on swatches for a series of classes I have on Sunday. My boss is paying one of the teachers to come in and teach us the finishing classes for free. She rocks! I've got 9 swatches down, a million to go. Ok, so not quite a million, but there sure are a lot of them.

I would love to pull out my knitting right now, but I'm stuck in a project mgmt class. ugh. my instructor thinks i'm typing notes. Ok, I think he's catching on now. Guess I better go!
