I recently finished the striped sweater that I started knitting last year - just in time for spring, which is nice because it is a lighter weight sweater.

Back in November when the weather started to turn cold, my twins would complain about cold hands when we went out for a walk. I had just come off of an intense month and a half of knitting a sample for Brooklyn Tweed (yet to be revealed) and I was really behind with my hat/mitten knitting. Nolan and Hayden are now 3 but they still have little hands - I could knit them up some mittens in no time!

So after a looong break from this blog, I am back. Last year got a bit crazy and with everything that went down this blog had to take a back seat. After taking such a long hiatus it is a little hard to start back up because it's like, where do I begin? I will just start by telling you about my life changes that led to me ignoring this blog for so long. My husband was offered a new job so we found ourselves having to move from upstate New York to the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania. This took many trips back and forth with the family, trying to get acquainted with the area and trying to find a place to live before my husband started his new job and my oldest son had to start school. We also took a trip down to Texas to visit with family for a couple of weeks before our big move. We eventually found a great house in a great neighborhood that we all love. Then came the packing - and let me tell you - this family of five has a lot of stuff. And then came the unpacking and settling in. And then came the holidays, which are a lot of fun with the kids but also a lot of work. Now that the holidays are behind us and the winter is coming to a close, things are at a lull and I wanted to get back on here because I miss sharing about my knitting. And even though I have been super busy with all of these other things I have still been knitting. Today I will share what I am working on at the moment and then I will try to catch up on everything else with later posts and try to keep on going.

So I am finally getting around to posting about the shrug that I finished. Truth be told, I have finished four sweaters that I haven't posted about. These days I am a little self conscious about my picture being taken. After taking care of three kids all day everyday, I look really tired. I mean, I look like I could use a year long nap. Also, my body is not what it used to be after being pregnant with twins and I have had to face the fact that it is never going to go back. So its kind of hilarious (not really) that I chose a shrug as the knit that that I am posting about.
Pattern: Shrug by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in Aqua
Needles: size US 6

So this is a little update on how my spring knits are coming along.
I started a new sweater that I'm totally excited about.
