Been So Long

I am reminded of that old song by the Pastels. Okay, so the Pastels were a singing group long before your time and the song, Been So Long, is really a love (or lack there of) song. My point is it has been so long since I put an entry in my blog. Four months! Why? Because life threw me more lemons than I could handle. I couldn't make lemonade fast enough. I was drowning. When the going got really tough, tough-person-that-I-thought-I-was went shopping. But an iPhone, two Kindles and a designer handbag later I was still drowning. So I withdrew. I withdrew from my blogs, from my e-lists, from Ravelry, from society. I knitted. I read novels. I listened to audio books. The lemons continue to arrive, but I'm over it. I'm trying to make a comeback. Bear with me.

I continue to knit Volt, the shawl from The Fine Line I fell in love with way back when. I still love it. It should be finished in time for the first cooler weather. The black cropped pants, crisp white shirt and green Birkenstocks await.
