nov1 - 1

Hello, friends! Thanks for the kind notes and comments you’ve left here over the last few months. Boh and I are doing well; just busy and tired from all that new professor life requires. I’m not totally ready to give up on this space — it has been so important to me for so long! (Really. I think I missed my 9th blogiversary — it would’ve been sometime in October.)

But I’m here, right now, to tell you that last night I felt the pull of my stash, and even though it was way too late at night, I found myself digging through bins and shelves of yarn to find something to knit with. I love that feeling, and I wanted to share it. I was too sleepy to wind any yarn or to get to the point where I’ve settled on a pattern, but YAY! My fingers want to knit something. (Maybe a Rikke hat out of bright variegated sock yarn? Maybe another eternity scarf in cozy, subtly kettle-dyed grey?)

Anyway, that feeling of needing to knit something is so great. And honestly, I haven’t had the feeling in awhile. I’m glad it’s back. Happy November, readers (if you’re still here!), from me and of course, from Boh.

  1. Transitions take time. Glad the urge to knit is back. And glad you’re back on the blog. Yes, we are still here!

    Next year, you might consider a visit to SAFF now that you aren’t so far away from that big fiber fair. It would be a nice change of pace for you. Today is the last day for this year’s event. It will be about the same time next year. Near Asheville.

  2. Hi Boh! It is definitely high-knitting-season…something about the leaves. Hope professoring is going well.

  3. Welcome back! The cool weather has a way of pulling one back to their stash and cool weather things. Glad you have returned. So glad to see Boh doing his loyal dog duty also.

  4. Any time I see that sweet dog’s face, it makes me happy! I’m glad to hear that things are going well, even if they are busy (that’s life, though, right?). Can’t wait to see what you’ve been knitting!

  5. I’m glad you are settling in well, and especially that you feel like knitting. :-)

    I hope you’ll stick around, I enjoy your posts, and am secretly in love with Boh.

  6. Glad you’re back and you and Boh are well! Can’t wait to see what you decide to knit! Happy November!

  7. Yep, still here. Wouldn’t want to miss an adorable picture of Boh. He’s my favorite blog doggy.

  8. Yay, you’re back! Hoping you’ll stay. Glad the tug of knitting is back for you. Looks like you’ve settled in nicely.

  9. Yayyyy!!!!! It’s so great to get an update! Moving and starting a new routine is definitely draining, so it makes sense that something had to give for awhile. Big pets to sweet Boh! I second Dianne’s suggestion above. Next year, you must come to SAFF. We could have a Barefoot Rooster blog readers meet-up! :)

  10. Love seeing photos of Boh. My Samson crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. I’m just so lost. Seeing Boh always makes me smile.

    Glad you’re getting the knitting bug. :-) This damp, rainy weather always makes me want to have knitting needles and beautiful yarn in my hands.

  11. It’s been awhile, hope you’re just busy educating those in need of an education.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Boh!
