Such a long time

It seems like such a long time since I've posted. I've been busy with school, reading, knitting and Ryan. They all keep me very busy. I just finished reading our book club book for next month: Water for Elephants. It kept me mesmerized. It's an interesting, sad, intriguing, wonderful read. If you're a huge animal lover, it might not be for you as it does get cruel, but the truth and the history of the story kept me going.

I finished the shell of Ryan's stocking. I still need to embellish, but figure I have about 2 months to do that. Most of it is simple i-cording, I have a few things I want to finish first but I'll get to it soon.

I'm working on knitting some dishcloths for a good friend who just got engaged. I am having more fun planning her shower and wedding gifts - I think she'll really enjoy and appreciate them. She also knits, but sticks to blankets, scarves, and granny dishcloths. I just sent her 2: one had a diamond ring pattern and the other had a heart on it. I'm waiting to hear how she liked them.

The Christmas swap I'm a part of starts soon- I'm so excited. I have so many great ideas and things that I'd like to send to my swap partner. I haven't started any kind of Christmas shopping yet - yikes! Usually I'm about done by now.

I better post this and get back to things. I have to tink the last row of the dishcloth as when I got to the end of the row I realized there was a mistake in the pattern. Not a biggie, but easier to do when Ryan isn't around. :)
