Breaking the Blog Silence

Hello all! I have many things to share since my last post so let's start with what's on the needles. I continue to be addicted to sweater knitting so my current project is a light weight cardigan for an up coming June wedding.

I'm using a double strand of lace weight yarn to knit the Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig (it is on Ravelry here) .

I just completed putting the arms on waste yarn and am knitting the body of the sweater. I'm surprised at how "quickly" it is knitting up - I've been working on it about a week. I am bit concerned about how large the arms seem to be, but in the end I may be surprised.

In other news, last weekend David had the annual Colorado Habitat for Humanity conference in Estes Park and (like last year) I got to tag along for some R&R. I spent some time knitting at the local yarn shop, reading in a local coffee shop, doing a little mountain biking, a little shopping, and some snow shoeing.

Yes, that's right. It may be spring where the rest of you live, but our mountains still have snow. To be fair the weather has been a lot warmer lately, mid to upper 60's, but some of the mountains do have a fair bit of snow. (That orange spec in the photo on the right is me.)

Also this weekend we spent some time with old friends visiting Boulder. It was a great day spent catching up on life, eating delicious food, and relaxing.
Oh, and I stopped in at Shuttles, Spindles, & Skeins Inc. to try out the Lendrum DT (the spinning wheel I am saving for). Good news, my saving has not been in vain. The wheel was just as wonderful and beautiful as I had imagined! I'm half way to getting it!
