I'm still here

Hey everyone. Sorry I've been so silent lately. School starting has really bogged down the free time. I am still working on the mitred jacket and finished the one-skein gift for my Knitting Parents email group. Of course I didn't think to get a picture until it was packaged up and ready to mail. I started many things, rug of old t-shirts, string market bag, etc and nothing seemed right. I finally settled on a simple felted bag. My exchange person lives in the south so all the cute mitten patterns just didn't seem right. :) Hopefully she will get it soon and may send me a picture that I can post.

I haven't knit almost anything in the last 3 weeks. I did sneak in a couple hours last Sunday at the cabin while the guys all watched football and took out the jet ski and its lift. I sat in a sunny spot that was out of the wind and listened to Cast-On podcasts and knit. Ahhhh, dreamy!

Hopefully now that school has been back for almost a month we are more into a routine and I can get some evening knitting in. Hockey starts the end of October so I'm always guaranteed knitting time while waiting for practices to end. ;) I promise to post pictures of the mitred jacket soon - it is about 80% done.
