August 2009 was a wondrous but emotional month for me.
I got to attend my first major knitterly event: The Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon.
I spent a lovely, relaxing weekend at a crafting retreat in the White Mountains of Arizona with some friends.
And I was shocked and grieved to find my sister-in-law had been much sicker than they had let on and she left this realm just a few days later.
If you visit this blog somewhat often, you may have noted that I didn't blog for several months. Life was a bit overwhelming for me. It has returned to some semblance of normalcy but reality has shifted a bit.
Anyway - I had intended to finish the Sock Summit blogs I started in 2009. Much of it was generally written but I needed to go through pictures and just do the deed.
Heartened by the recent Sock Summit 2009 podcasts that the Knitmore Girls released over the last few months (i.e. "Look - I'm not alone in my backlog!"), I decided to stop practicing my procrastination talents and finish up the August 2009 blogs.
I've back-posted them for the sake of time-line, but I'm confessing here and on those belated blogs about the true reality of when I pulled out the 'Round-To-it and finished up the blogging.
Yes, this is a real wooden Round "Tuit".
Hence, I have absolutely no excuse for not doing something until I get Around to it - 'cause I already have a Round "Tuit".
So - the shortcuts.
