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.

Yes, things have been so crazy. Hopefully things are back to "normal" for both of us soon!

Now that we're back to "normal", I suppose we (I) should make more of an effort to post! ;)
