Elliphantom: Return of the Knitter

Hello there knitterly peeps! Long time no blog, eh? I have only a feeble excuse involving a dead home computer, backwards priorities (yes, I do exercise before I blog...that even surprises me), and my now yearly habit of abandoning knitting for my stamp collection. It seems that Spring breeds philately in these parts.

Wondering what I've been doing with myself?

I'm Still working on the Lily of the Valley Cardi. Evidence:

Hallo! We are fronts!


I've finished one Plain Old Sock (pending end-weaving). This pair is probably for Rae, who complained over Christmas that I never knit her socks. Be careful what you wish for dearie.

I have a knack for picking out hideous sock yarn, don't I?


In the Fabulous Gifties category, I got a seriously fantastic package from Nova! I have ridiculously good luck when it comes to blog contests, it seems. Observe and be envious:

All sorts of home-sewn cuteness + yarn for a pair of Snickets. Yay!


Lastly (and definitely leastly) I signed up for a Twitter account yesterday. Time to see what all the fuss is about, I think! I'm perfectly content to tweet at nobody, but if you're interested in elli-related, mostly non-knitterly minutia...follow at your own peril.

Over and out!
