It’s been forever since I’ve updated. Logging in I realized I hadn’t posted to let you guys know I’ve moved to blogspot. You can now find me at should-be-knitting on blogger.  At present I’m mainly blogging at list makers anonymous (yay new years project!) but should be back at should be knitting soon.

I haven’t felt much like writing lately.  I’ve either been really busy or totally uninspired.  I’m hoping to have a bunch of photos done up for Monday as Memorial Day’s the official start of summer around here.  Until then this little guy’s going to hang around and keep an eye on things 😉

No WW for me today, just not feeling like it.  So instead I bring you some photos of my latest mini project.  Pattern on Rav (blogger link).  It all started with an obsession with crochet thread….
