What's Going On Here?

Something strange is happening... I can't quite make it out...

Oh! Hello there!

Would you believe I haven't knit a stitch since January, and today I whipped up one of these adorable little guys?

Well, it's true.

A combination of a crazy busy semester and my brain focusing on wedding things instead of knitting things led to a complete halt in all things knitting.* Until now. When I realized I have at least four pregnant friends, all of whom will soon have tiny little feet that need covering! (Well, that's not quite true- my friends' feet won't be shrinking, but my friends will soon have babies who have tiny little feet in need of covering.)

The semester is over, and I have one week of vacation before I start my summer job. I plan on making as many booties as possible in the next five days.

Ready, set, go-go-gadget-baby-booties.

*Ahem. Sorry for the four month lapse in blogging. If anyone is interested in wedding-related things that have nothing to do with knitting or baking, speak up in the comments and perhaps something can be arranged that would involve posting at a more frequent interval. ;-)

Hey Liz! Welcome back to the real world! ;)

I hope I can see you before I leave for MN for the summer...B and I will probably be having a Painting Party soon (hopefull, fingers crossed, we can close on the new house on Friday!), as well as a Moving Party on June 7th.

Life has been crazy on this side of the river...which fueled (in part, anyway), our decision to have a small, intimate wedding for about 20 close family members and friends this September--in our backyard. :)

I for one, would love to hear wedding details!
