Which doesn't make much sense since I got rid of the post entitled "Not Me" along with all the others that weren't about knitting or were primarily about Japanese boy band idols. I haven't forsaken them - the links were dead anyway. But, yes, I feel pretty much back to normal and I've been knitting again. I have a different blog for the fangirling that you will NEVER EVER see. I like my life compart-a-mentalized, thank you very much.
I wanted to write something ironic/funny/contemplative/profound since I've been gone for so long, but I don't have one of those posts in me right now. I can only offer pictures of knitting. Imagine. Knitting. On a knitting blog.
OK, that was ironic/sarcastic/bewildered because I was going through all the links on the sidebar and discovered that a few of my old favorites have switched to sewing or cooking and one is now a blog entirely about her puppy. I cleaned house a bit and updated the layout and style. New beginning = new look.
Oops, there's some of that Japanese sneaking in. You knew it would.
It's Koigu PPPM done in the Lady Eleanor Stole pattern from Scarf Style on size 3 addi lace turbos. It will be a scarf for my Dad for Christmas. I began it on January 31st so I could say I started my Christmas knitting in January. Actually, this alone is pretty ambitious and I have to do something for Mom, Sis and B-in-Law as well, so an early start was proactive and wise. *nods round-eyed in solemn manner* Yes, very wise.
So, please let me know if you're still there. A smiley face will do. I'm curious.
