I have to catch up


My last post was during TdS 2017? Really?

Clearly, something in my life got right out of hand. I'm going to vaguely blame work for my rather long radio silence here, and just try to pick up as if I'd never fallen off the blogosphere in the first place.

There's a bit of a problem with that plan: despite the crazy pace of work last semester (I know - that leaves August unaccounted for, and I honestly have no answer. We were in BC for a couple of weeks, which eats up some of the missing time, but the rest? All I can do is hang my head in shame.), I found odd moments to knit here and there. Trouble is, they're pretty far in the past now, so I haven't got much to say about them anymore, other than I liked 'em. But that kind of goes without saying, no?

So, like the title says - I have to catch up.

(I know. The red red yarn refuses to be photographed in a way that shows the texture of the pattern at all. The trials and tribulations of being a red-loving knitter.)

Actually, this last one was the most recent, so I remember stuff. I remember stuff about those stripy socks too, but this post is already long. I'll try to come back to talk about the things I remember, and the things that are ongoing now, in the next few days. I know - promises, promises, right? I'll do my best not to lapse out again.
