It's been awhile...I have been beyond busy, but in a very satisfying and productive way. Finally have made some good progress on my research - and have jettisoned most of my old obligations in order to make time to do so: reduced my teaching load; got hubbo to take over our finances; dropped PTO, most school related volunteering, and all housecleaning. But did I give up knitting? Nay. Proof:
The free pattern can be found here. I've listed other specifics on Rav. Drops is an unbelievable resource - so. many. patterns. Their yarn looks nice as well.
Okay, now back to work. Hope you are enjoying the Spring as much as I am :)
