Lately, originally uploaded by rahime.

Okay, I have some explaining to do. I'll start by posting the things I've been (not) working on since my last post. Right to left, you'll see: the Congo socks I claimed were done in October - and if you look closely, you'll see that they're still on the needles. Well, they're almost done - they just have to be bound off. And they've been sitting on my bedside table gathering dust for over a month.

Next to them is a sock out of Scarlet Fleece in 'popsicle,' which I'm just so not into lately and can't get myself to pick up. On the left, is Zeliha Abla's sock, which needs to be tried on her foot to check whether it's time to turn the heel. I haven't been to her house in about a month either.

Underneath it all is the back panel of a Bump maternity sweater from "Natural Knits for Babies and Moms." Yes, that's my excuse for not blogging for so long, but now that I'm in the second trimester I'm hard pressed to claim that morning sickness and fatigue are keeping me away from the computer. So... I promise to try and blog more... but honestly, there isn't much knitting going on here anyway. But I'll do my best.

It's an excellent excuse. I do love those popsicle socks though! I wouldn't worry about knitting or blogging. When you feel like it again, they'll be there, on your schedule.

I'm glad you're feeling better ...

ooh gosh! Congratulations! We have missed you, but you've got the best and happiest excuse possible! Don't neglect the Congo socks though, they deserve to be worn and if you don't finish them I will be round to claim them.... ;-)

Congrats!

Maybe you just aren't into socks right now, and you'll finish them when you're in a more socky mood.
