Long time, no post

I just wanted to take a minute to let everyone know I have not fallen off the face of the earth. My current work-in-progress is a secret for now but I will post pics later. I’m working on a baby shower gift for a friend and I don’t want her to see it before the shower. I will tell you that one of the gifts is a cross-stitch, so that’s what’s taking so long to finish and that’s why I haven’t been updating any projects this past month. But I’m on the final stretch, and I’ve been taking pictures of my progress throughout so hopefully I’ll be able to put together a neat little slideshow.

I do have some upcoming projects planned out, and I’ve already obtained the materials for them. My next two projects will be a couple knitted blankets. If you guys liked the Dubline Cardigan, you’ll love the first blanket. It’s from the same pattern book and has a Celtic knot pattern bordering it. I’ve never done it before, so hopefully it won’t take me too long and I’ll be able to get the pics uploaded within a month.

I’ve also been neglecting my tutorials, so if I get some time in the near future I’ll put up some more how-tos. Maybe something about cabling or increasing and decreasing stitches. I’ve been putting most of my spare time into getting some home renovations done, so it’s been tough to find time for other things. But once we’re done I’ll post pics of that, too. A lot of the work we’re doing ourselves, and we have some plans for some pretty sweet bookshelves so if they come out half as good as I want them to I’ll share them.

That’s about it for now, not much else to say. So I leave you with this.
