where'd she go?

I seem to have had a bit of an unexpected hiatus away from Ravelry, my blog, and even my knitting since posting the last time earlier in March. I have no other reason why except that I've just been purely exhausted from my busy 40 hour work weeks and life's responsibilities. It's been very disheartening for me to feel so disconnected from the things I love, and I've missed you all and my knitting so much. If you've commented, e-mailed or sent messages without as quick an answer as usual, please know that I'm going to make every effort to get back into my routine this month and that I appreciate your patience and understanding immensely.

With that said, I also feel like I owe everyone somewhat of an update on Julissa's makeover! The pattern write-up is coming along nicely - all numbers and instruction have been figured out, so all I've got left is to get everything together into some coherent instruction, which I'm diligently working on now. The little knitting I've been able to do since posting the first sneak peek picture has gotten the sweater quite a ways along and it's proving to be a very quick knit when I am able to focus on the project. It now has both sleeves and much of the bodice done, and I'm already halfway through the hip increases. I'll get to work on it again this weekend and hopefully have some more pictures soon :)

Hope everyone is having a beautiful start to Spring!


  1. So glad to see you online again :) Have a happy Easter.

  2. So nice to hear from you again! I think it's so comforting to know that, even if you step out for a bit, the creative world is always there for you whenever you're ready to step back in, at whatever pace, and it's as wonderful and fulfilling as ever. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been doing. xH

  3. I was just wondering about you, did not see a recent update. glad to hear that you are ok, and life does seems to take over our knitting from time to time.

    Will be looking forward to see what you have completed.
