Confessions of a skull-obsessed knitter

remember me?

Ack, my resolution to be a better blogger never really got off the ground, eh?

I thought I'd come and post a recent photo of el bubbo, only to realise that I haven't uploaded any since mid May!

My Ravelry inbox was groaning after a month's absence, and I have a stack of unanswered emails to attend to.

So, what have I been up to?

Trying to get more exercise for starters. Walking, for the most part, I bought Walk With Me for the DS, and it's proving to be useful in spurring me on.

Cooking LOTS. We're weaning Lewis and he seems to have developed our eclectic tastes, so I'm enjoying creating interesting taste combinations for him. I'm also trying to waste less food by planning ahead, and it seems to be working.
The purse-strings need to be tightened, as I don't have a job to go back to, and my redundancy pay won't last forever.

There has been absolutely NO knitting or sewing for at least 6 weeks, which saddens me greatly. I have bought supplies for a small sewing project though, and told my mother to nag me about it if it's not done by her next visit.

Hope to see some of you at the I Knit Weekender, as baby-wrangling makes knitting group attendance quite tough (but I wouldn't swap the little monkey)
