Real life

Well I’m alive. Sorry for being away for so long, but this time I actually have a good reason for being gone for so long. On June 11 I started working 8 hour days 5 days a week, my nephew has had ball games almost every night and tournaments on the weekends, family has come in to visit and I took a mini vacation to Cedar Point with my family, then when I got back from Cedar Point I got sick and I am actually still recovering. Tonight is actually my first free night in I don’t know how long. I have been nothing, but exhausted and have gotten very little knitting done, especially since on top of all that I has been going on I am still taking grad classes. So far classes have been going well though.

I don’t have any pictures of my finished fingerless gloves or gemini to show you because I haven’t found a time where I actually look decent to take them, but here are some pictures of my on going new works in progress, some pictures from Cedar Point, and my new favorite kitchen appliance.

Here:s the Abate that I am making for my niece Olivia, the designer is Alicia Plum from Plum Dandi Designs. I am a big fan of almost all of her designs, but not until recently have I purchased anything of hers, but expect to see a lot more projects from her designs soon. This will essentially be Olivia's Christmas gift.

The new Kitchenaid mixer that my mom bought because I burnt up her crappy little hand one. I love this mixer and have big plans for it. I have already made about 3 to 4 dozen cookies with it!
