Let's see if I remember how to do this.....

Well, well, well.....look who finally has a blog post!  What a sabbatical!!  I don't seem to have lost any followers, although I wouldn't blame you if you left!!

When last we spoke, I was doing a lot of crocheting, but I had also started the NY Cardigan . It hibernated all summer and I've been pecking away at it this Fall.   I'm proud to report that it's finished and I wore it today!!


It turned out much longer than I'd expected, but I still like it.  I used Knit Picks DK Gloss and the color is called fedora.

As I was working on my cardigan, I also made a cardi for my little nephew....

It's called Young Einstein .  I used the DK Gloss on this one, too.  The color is called Doe.  The pattern was really nice and simple and well written.  In fact, I've already got the yarn lined up to knit two more of these for my girls!

I also squeezed in a little sewing.  My stepmother has been wanting me to sew her a purse for YEARS!  I finally found a pattern I liked and I wound up making two.  It's called the Wasp Bag.

And there you have it!  A brief look at what I've been up to.  I can't promise I'll be back more frequently.  Quite frankly I love just creating without thinking about taking pictures and sitting in front of the computer.  But, I really don't mind sitting down like this and showing you a bunch of stuff at once.

It is the day and age of quick glimpses at ones iPhone throughout the day....and if that's your bag, too, you can find me on Instagram as swandiva.  And of course on Pinterest!  As Beth Plummer.
