It’s been a while, and I am sorry about that. I’ve rewritten many drafts of this post and nothing seems to flow. I feel that my muse has left; I’m holding on to the thought that I’m just rusty!
I saw, with regret, my favorite picture editing site, Picnik, get swallowed up by Google+. But, here I am again and I’ve found a new picture editing site, and so far so I’m liking it! I am now using PicMonkey, and it does everything I want to do. My needs are simple.

Pair of socks#1. The group of knitters that I meet with on Sunday evenings, at Starbucks, is have a little knit-a-long (a.k.a. KAL). We plan on knitting all the socks in Cookie A.’s first book: Sock Innovation. Here is the first pair, on the needles:

And below is the shawl, Kudzu, (at least up to this point):
