Howdy!

Nope, I didn't die.

Actually, the exact opposite has happened. Yep, I'm 13 weeks pregnant, due December 10. (I figured I'd throw you that little tidbit. That way you wouldn't be so judgmental about my blog neglect.)

But I'm feeling more like myself these days and thought that since April and May got completely away from me, that I'd give June a try.

So, I was just looking through some saved pictures on my computer, figuring that I could through up a gratuitous beagle shot (because what's a blog post without a picture?) when I came across this beautiful item.


Did I ever blog about this? I actually went back to the blog and scrolled back a year (don't worry, it didn't take long) and I didn't see it. So I figure that if I blogged about it more than a year ago, then you all forgot about it anyway, so I'd just go ahead and blog about it anyway.

This is Margie's Hemlock, made out of some Debbie Bliss Stella she procured on sale last summer.


It never would have occurred to me to use this yarn for this project (I made mine out of Cascade Heritage because I follow directions--particularly when Jared Flood is the person doing the telling) but I think it turned out beautifully. The stitch definition is out of control. Now, because Margie used a smaller yarn, the blanket isn't very big. But I think you know where I'm headed with this. Smaller yarn. Cotton. Smaller blanket. Hmmm....there might be another Hemlock in my future.

Oh, and speaking of the Summer Sale, it's on the schedule for July 10.

Oh, and one more thing: did you check out Tonya's blog post about her Spud & Chloe pattern? It's absolutely adorable! Congratulations, Tonya!

Okay, before I completely pull a Kevin (you know, not blog for months only to blog a novella once I do finally get to it), I'll let you go. And hopefully, I'll be back before August.

holy crap! a baby! that is so so exciting.
just think...i have a kid who will be pretty much exactly 11 years older than yours which means in 2 years you already have a babysitter. ;)
so thrilled for you.

Thanks Erin. That gets me at least part way off the hook. Irene I'm looking at you too girl. Don't forget that my Steven is also having twins!
