[clears throat]

Hi, friends. I seem to be neglecting this space. But the good news is that I have been knitting — mostly simple things, and a lot of garter stitch bias blankets as presents. Want to see some of what we’ve been up to these last few months?

Well, this guy has been doing a lot of this.

23jan05

And I’ve been knitting a lot of colorblock bias blankets, all of them wedding presents.

23jan06

I can’t even pick one; I love all the different color combinations I’ve been using for these.

23jan07

Oh, and this hat is going to make its way to a friend who I’m pretty sure has been wearing a hat I made him something like 8 years ago — one of my earliest projects.

23jan08

Another! This yellow yarn was a cashmere blend that I bought in NYC maybe in 2007? It just hadn’t found the right project yet. I love this stripe of brightness.

23jan09

This blanket has some Fibre Company Knightsbridge AND a whole skein of Malabrigo. So soft.

23jan10

A walk on a cold but sunny day. I love all the different colors in the water and ice of the stream.

23jan11

An attempt at a self portrait with Boh. He never looks at the camera when we try this, so this is about as good as they get.

23jan12

Butternut tikka masala from Feasting at Home. This was SO GOOD.

23jan13

The finished blanket with the Knightsbridge and Malabrigo.

23jan14

I got a very cool portable standing desk, and now Boh supervises by sitting right next to me while I write.

23jan15

I’m on the academic job market right now, and it is brutal. Boh and I needed a little bit of sunshine this afternoon, and the view from the park near my house helped. Everything was sparkling today.

23jan01

A baby hat out of handspun for a friend’s soon-to-be-here baby.

23jan02

An adventure to find the waterfall at a local natural area owned by my university. I think it was December, but it felt like fall.

Happy, happy rooster. (And happy Boh, too.)

Hope you’re all well, fiber friends.
