Yes, I am still here!

Seeing the date of my last post shocked me.  I get so wrapped up in other things...of course knitting and crochet and all the other crafts I do or try, but life sometimes just passes by and suddenly it's weeks, then months, since the last post.

I'm not going to promise to post more often; I know better.  However, I will post today!

Since last fall, I've published a few new patterns (find me on Ravelry).  I'm currently working on toddler pullovers, per request, for my grandchildren.  The girl's pattern is written and knitted and now in the hands of my capable testers, so it should be out soon.  My knitting friend M, from the forum, told me the flower pattern looks like a Banksia (an Australian flower), and that was a happy accident since I drew the chart from scratch but gave the pattern its name!

The boy's pattern is in its third incarnation now--I think the design is going to work out for this one, but with a repeat of six stitches and ten rows, the increases are proving a bit tricky.  I'll get there.  

I'll also make a note on my calendar not to forget about this blog.  Let's hope it works.
