On Hiatus

Dear Blogging Friends,

Thank you for all the concern about my absence. This time it's a good thing that's keeping me from posting.

December 20 my life changed dramatically. A friend from the past became my love of the present and future. He and I are spending a lot of time together and there is no time left for knitting or blogging.

Knitting is in my blood. As things settle down into a normal routine (hard to imagine right now), I plan to be knitting and blogging again. Until then, wishing you all many blessings in 2013.

Marguerite - I'm sooooo happy for you. I met and married the love of my life in 2012 and I hope you and your new love are as happy as Steve and I are. On the subject of knitting, I was inspired by your Peace Fleece gansey and I want to make a similar one in 2013. I hope you enjoy every moment of your new life. We'll be lookng forward to your updates when you return. - Megan
