After nearly a year of absence from this blog, I am testing the waters to be sure I want to continue writing here. I miss it greatly, but don't feel like I have much to say.
There has, however, been a lot of knitting. Since Otto in October 2011, I have completed 51 projects and jettisoned three. That's more than a knit a week! I will post photos from a few of my favorites below. Check them all out on my Ravelry page.
I guess a few other things have happened in the past year, too. After four years and five Gatherings, I left the Western Folklife Center. It was a personal decision that had many factors, including falling out of love with Elko itself. Thankfully, we have good friends in Reno who are giving us shelter while we job and/or soul search. Reno isn't where we want to be, but it is four hours closer. I have some contract work that's keeping me afloat, but I think it's time to start concentrating on finding a job. My soul is relatively settled. That took awhile, actually. I spent the first two months here bored and listless. Now, I'm happy to sleep in, watch a couple hours of Charmed, work a little, job hunt a little, and knit like crazy. Reno's a lot better than we thought it would be, too, so that helps (though how can a place call itself a city without an Anthropologie store?). Our Netflix queues are full of old movies because we actually get to see a few interesting films when they are released. I'm rambling--this is what happens when you have all the time in the world--so I'll post those projects now. If this piques my desire to write about knitting, you'll hear from me soon. I have also been posting photos (not knitting related, all taken on my iPhone) on Instagram as Everywhereknitting. Have a look-see if you're interested. I've missed you all.
Until next time!
