Things have been a little silent here lately.....there's a very good reason for that.

The Peaches side (Erin) to this venture hasn't been feeling too hot for the past couple of months.  I don't know how much she would want me to disclose here, so I will leave it at that for now.  I guess I can add that she is doing better now, but may still have some mountains to move.

The Purls side (Moi) had her workshop burned down a few months ago when hubby neglected a fire he built close by.  Thankfully my dyes and yarn were inside my house at the time, so I didn't lose those.  However, I did lose quite a bit of my supplies to the fire.  I have been slowly rebuilding my stock.  We have had a new workshop built, so I am hoping to be getting back to dyeing soon!

Now I will show you a few of the things I've been working on in the meantime:

This is the wrong-side of my Pippa Jumper.

It is inside-out at the moment since I want to take care of my tails before moving on to the collar and sleeves.  I was too lazy to rearrange it for its photo session.

 These are my Charlie Brown Socks, so named because the colors remind me of his sweater. 
I will probably end up giving these to Erin.  The pattern looks so pretty on the pattern page, but it has turned out to be a bit of a disappointment for me.

 And lastly, here is Hat.  I'm not quite sure what its name will be, yet.
 This is an entrelac hat that I have actually finished, but I still need to weave in some ends before it is ready for its finished photos.
