So they say...

Thanks to Dorothy, I "had" to go take this quiz and see what kind of knitter I'm categorized as. :)

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Purist. You are an accomplished knitter producing beautiful pieces with a classic feel. You sometimes lament losing half of your local yarn shop to garish novelty yarns. Perhaps you consider fun fur scarves the bane of knitting society and prefer to steer new knitters towards the wool and cotton blends. Some might call you a bit of an elitist but you know that you've been doing this craft long enough to respect the history behind it and honor it with beautiful piece that can last a lifetime.

Still Alive Here in New England :)

Although it's been a month since last blogging, we are alive and well here in New Hampshire. We've had a lot of snow, ice...and more snow and ice...and we're PATIENTLY awaiting Spring and sunshine here.
Knitting News and Updates: My Tramline Cable Pullover back is completed, and I'm 1/3 finished with the front. A fun knit. The 2 at a time socks (Coquette) are a hoot to knit, and I'm on the foot section of this pair. Newly cast on: Tangerine Twist summer sweater in Classic Elite Provence cotton yarn.

Why no updates? Mostly due to the fact that I find it physically difficult to use the keyboard on the computer, as I've recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and my hands seem to be affected the most, along with fatigue and occassional fever with flare-ups. While all is fine, I feel like I've fallen off the face of the blogging world, but I'll be back here with photos and general knitting banter when I'm feeling up to it. :) Oh, and I'll be on Ravelry when able (aka KnitterKris).

I'm enjoying knitting podcasts, while I'm not able to keep up with knitting while my hands give me trouble, and I'm especially enjoying the new Belle of the Ball podcast, as well as my favorites...She-Knits, Yarn Thing, KnittingatNight, Cast On, Stash and Burn, and many more. Check them out if you haven't yet!
