Hello there blog, I've missed you!

So what has been happening on this end? Nothing much I can tell you that. I've been working on the LT and Sahara simultaneously and let me tell you, it makes for sloooow knitting. The right front (is it?) of the LT is done and I'm still on the left front. The hemp is stil fairly rough to work with and I'm really hoping that it turns out as soft as it looks in the book.

Sahara is coming along nicely. I'm using my new Knitpicks options to knit this with and it's lovely. It's going slowly though.

On my to finish list is this bag - Knitpicks Rick Rack purse. I felted this ages ago but still haven't found a piece of lining that I like and I'm not sure about that hot pink ribbon I have running through it. Definitely have to change this one up and it'll be a gift for my daughter.

Here are some books that I recently purchased... And So To bed, Pursenalities and One Skein Wonders. I'm very impressed with all three and hope to start working from at least one of them soon... but it's nice to know that I have them here!

From the And So To Bed, the Lula doll is next on my list to make. I'll be making it for my daughter but I have to dye the yarn first. It'll be my first dye experience! Which reminds me, I have to buy some black tea today to get it done.

Finally, here are some stitch markers that I bought from Charles Lee. He's done a wonderful job on them and I love them!

I hope to have some FO's on here soon! It seems like a long time since I've had any!
