Alive and knitting...

I've been so MIA for SO long it's not funny...I've been knitting a lot lately, but not as much as usual. I burnt myself out, and I've got a baby blanket deadline. You know how well those sit...NOT well. I hate deadlines. Rather than knit on it, I did a tank in the round in 48 straight hours (omg, never again). I also have messed around with a felted purse for my niece, and some little rinky dink things here and there I'm still working on.
We've been landscaping the heck out of the front lately. Last year we installed pavers and a retaining wall in the late summer, and it was winter before we could do the landscaping end. Dirt doesn't till well, nor do plants in the winter in Ohio, so we waited until a few weeks ago. We also put in an unplanned 35 gallon water garden/pond with a bubble fountain. We added some feeder goldfish, too (at 39 cents a piece, if they die, they die, if they live, well they weren't dinner). I love sitting out there just vegging and knitting. NICE in the spring!
Aside from that, it's been pretty slow here. Maybe I should call my water garden pond Lake Wobegon. Where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.

Here's my knitting by the pond... And why you shouldn't knit on a sloped driveway.

It's my new sock...In Online Beach.

Thank for looking at my first pair of socks in KR.
