All work and no play...
Hi all, I have been SUPER busy at work-I work in IT in software quality assurance. That means we have fixed deadlines and we often don't get the final version until, oh, a day before the install date! FUN! Anyway, we have a little breather coming up so I can post blogs again.
Being busy does not mean that I have not been knitting! I finished my Kiri shawl in kidsilk haze:

Laceweight wool in purple gold (currently knitting Kiri shawl again). This one reminds me of fall leaves. I also got:
I haven't started anything yet in the above yarns...will post when I have pictures. And, I have just joined SOCKTOBERFEST! Time to finish my socks!
I have lots of socks to finish! Posts of socks in progress to come!
