I haven't fallen completely off the face of the planet yet. I'm just toodling along with a ton of projects.
I have made in the past couple of weeks two knitted scarves for Dulaan, one crocheted scarf for Dulaan, a crocheted scarf for myself and this:
I have been enjoying crocheting (not that I have stopped knitting), and have actually started a few patterns in the Happy Hooker. Conveniently, more of these patterns are lighter on the yarn usage, so I can make something with fewer skeins, despite the reputation for requiring more yarn. A lot of the crochet projects are more open and lacy, mitigating the high yarn usage problem with air.
