I feel like a broken record saying I’m sorry for being away and I’ve missed this space and catching up with everyone and seeing all the progress of everyone’s projects. I have been knitting and reading and cooking. But you know how when you’ve spent time away and the longer it goes on the harder it is to jump back in? That was a long rhetorical question…but it’s where I am.
I have been knitting. Like on this beautiful Linier Top out of the Firefly.
It’s so pretty and soft and drapey. I know it will be just beautiful.
There is also this darling Aviatrix hat I’m making out of leftover Liberty Wool Light from this baby blanket. I just need to pick up the stitches on the other ear flab and find a button and it will be done!
Mostly, I’ve been missing this outlet and this connection. I feel so out of touch with the knitting world! I don’t know what anyone is knitting this week and it’s a little sad 😦 I just don’t know if I’ll really be getting back into my normal routine, but I’d like to give it a good try. My bloglovin’ feed is so long and it feels overwhelming when I click on posts and realize I’ve got 350+ posts to catch up on and then I feel rushed and I don’t comment. Sounds like lots of self-inflicted trouble!
In the madness I also missed my blog anniversary! I’m so excited I’ve hit the one year mark. I feel like I’ve grown a bit as a knitter, definitely taking on bigger, more complicated projects but also just appreciating the easier projects. Not to mention the awesome community of people I’ve had the opportunity to get to know!!
Anyway, it feels good to be back 🙂

Love your projects! That purple color is divine, and I love the hat in the multiple colors. I’ve thought about making one too–was it too hard?
Thanks!! The purple is so cheery and vivid! Just gorgeous. The hat is coming along and was a great way to learn short rows! I had to look up a few different ways to do them but once I got going it was fun! Definitely recommend and the pattern is nicely done and written for several different weights of yarn 🙂
Ooh, I’m so scared of short rows! But when I’m ready, I’ll put this hat at the top of the list.
Welcome back! 🙂
Thanks 🙂 feels great to be back!!
I ended up just deleting a load of posts when I took a sudden break- the stress just isn’t worth it! Nice to see you back 🙂
Agreed 🙂 thanks it feels great to be back!!
Happy bloggiversary and welcome back! Love the projects you are currently working on 🙂
Thanks! It feels good to be back 🙂
Welcome back! Don’t feel like you have to read every back post. Sometimes the best thing is to just jump in at the present and move ahead.
Thanks! Those words are super helpful 🙂 I think I just might!
