Back in the U.S.A.

If you are reading this, Thank you! Also, if you are reading this, you are likely an online friend and are aware of my recent hiatus and may skip the following few sentences. Mid-June we began our pack out and travel from Germany to the United States. It has been 9 1/2 years since we lived in the continental USA and we are more than excited about this new journey in our lives.

July 6, 2012 we signed a lease and are now renting a charming little house in my homestate of Rhode Island (RI). While our property is still not here, we are living 'camp style' on loaner furniture from our local Loan Locker. Hopefully our property arrives in the next week!

In the meantime, Potter Craft has been kind enough to send a new book for review/giveaway which I hope to have up for you soon. I have not had an awful amount of time to commit to knitting, crochet, sewing, designing or spinning but have indeed made time for each! Please keep checking the site for these updates in the coming weeks.

So, let's see who is still keeping up with me; Leave a comment please!

What I'm working on this week: 

Knitting/Design: A shawl series due for release in Spring 2013

Crochet: New Spa Cloths for the new house!

Spinning: Corriedale Samples from Cary Smith's Corries.

Sewing: Mostly repairs ;)

Kerrie, it's great to see you blogging again! I'm glad you found a place in R.I. and really delighted that you're working on a shawl pattern series. I enjoyed knitting Abalone and have worn it several times (to compliments, occasionally, too). I'm currently finishing a baby blanket and a few other things as a baby gift (she's due in early October, so she says). I do hope your "stuff" gets there very soon so you can focus on all the "back to school" planning that is upon us all.

If anyone can pull it together, you can. I look forward to seeing some great projects from you on here. Just an FYI, I found that tulip pattern I was looking for! My plan is socks!

Welcome back. Hope the 'camping' doesn't get too difficult and that your belongings arrive sooner than you expect.
