Time for a list!

How sad! I should be kicked off of the knitting rings I'm in because I haven't posted in months! Oh well. How do I get back into the swing of things in the blogging world? A list maybe? Ok. How bout a list of WIPs:

1. Many, many Mary Jane Slippers. I've been commissioned by a friend to knit up 5 pairs of said slippers. Oh they are cute! Here's a pict.

2. The log cabin blanket for my hubby. Yeah...haven't picked that up for longer than I've been absent from blogging.

3. Mitered square blanket...sigh...blankets do not keep my attention I guess. Oh but I love imagining it on the yet-to-be-bought bed for our yet-to-be-guest room that is serving as my "project" room for now.

4. Tiny socks for an emergency baby gift knit on size 1 needles. Size 1 needles...need I say more?

I think that's about it. I really don't like to have too many projects going at one time. I get too overwhelmed.
Have I bragged about my new house yet?? Oh let me...ok. We moved in August. It's in an oh so cute, small (only 200 houses), township on the West - way West -side of the Salt Lake Valley. If you are familiar with the SL Valley, we live just under the copper mines. Our house was built in 1928 by Kennecott as a home for some lucky, well paid miner and his family. It's just what we wanted--a charming, cottage bungalow on a quite street in a small town. But not too far away from civilization.
Oh the charm of this town is incredible! I never knew it existed in all the 18 years I've lived here. People actually sit on their porches in the summertime and wave to you as you drive by. Yes, it's true folks! In our busy society today, places like this still do exist. Kids play outside and I'm not afraid to walk my dog at night.
