I do, actually, still knit

So much has been happening lately that I just don't get to the computer (or the camera for that matter) on a regular basis. It seems that everytime I go to use the computer I have a child standing next to me asking to use the computer, and if I dare say "no" then....well...it's just easier to turn the damn thing off and no one use it. Or the husband is on the computer. He did accept a job and this is his second week of working. I found it irrita....er... interesting that he could have a computer in the basement that he does all of his work on and the looking for work, and yet he can spend an inordinate amount of time on the computer that I use. But, what can I say he's the one with the job that pays for the computers.

But, knitting. Yes, I do, actually, still knit I just am lazy about getting pictures of what I knit. A while back (meaning a few months ago) I ordered some Canapone from Elann (Canapone being their hemp yarn) with the idea that I'd knit girl child and I matching skirts from it. What I did not realize is that the Canapone is a very light weight fingering yarn, not the DK weight that they claim it is. Perhaps it's dk weight if you aren't knitting a skirt, but I'm telling you for a skirt, it's fingering. But I digress, I had no interest in knitting a skirt from the yarn when it landed in my mail box and I wasn't about to send the stuff back so I knit a "Lacy Little Top" by Lana Knits. I am very very happy with how the top came out, happy enough that I'm planning the next one. I may even get around eventually to knitting a skirt...but from allhemp6 which (to my understanding anyway) is heavier.
