Just a quick check in to let folks know that I'm still here. I am knitting socks at work, and I finally finished a scarf that I started two years ago. It was originally meant for a co-worker (from a job where she and I were both laid off). We've completely lost touch, so I donated it to Bardic Olympics instead.
Jess' wee little Iris chose it as her prize, so I feel that it has found it's best true home.
