Will you take me back?

Any diligence to blogging and uploading photography has been swept up and lost in a flurry of techno challenges (1 laptop: deceased; another needed the equivalent of a quadruple cardiac bypass), a wonderful school retreat up at Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa in Whitefield, NH, and last but not least, the fourth semester of grad school and the requisite editing and shaping of my book’s manuscript.

About the photo: In honor of our retreat’s visiting author and her novel The Knitting Circle, Ann Hood, I organized a knitting circle for our last day. I brought extra needles and yarn for those who thought they would like to get reacquainted with knitting, as well as some of my favorite pattern books and magazines for inspiration. One of the circle observers, a non-knitter, snapped this pic of me hard at work on my “Curves of Pursuit” blanket.

I promise more photos when I figure out how to streamline uploads and edits on this vintage Mac. A system upgrade is most certainly in our future. And I sincerely hope I haven’t lost too many readers after such a gap in posting. Today is an ‘editing day’ for the manuscript. But I just had to sneak away to the blog for a bit and write to tell you what’s been going on.

P.S. I’ve also started a blog for my writing colleagues over here. Come visit and meet everyone!

    Someday I’ll tackle Curve of Pursuit. It looks like a long slog of garter stitch towards the end, but what a great design. Computer trouble is such a pain, sorry to hear you are suffering — I just upgraded my 5 year old Mac and am still working thru the bugs.

      The long slog of garter stitch, as you say, is perfect for ‘social knitting’ — no risk of mistakes that will need frogging later. I love seeing this piece grow and know that I will be happiest if I keep on knitting until it is large enough to keep me cozy next winter.
