Long time no see!

I've been a bad bad bad blogger. So much has happened in this past year I don't even know where to begin. I've gotten divorced, left my job, gone back to school, and moved two hours away from all the people I love. It's been a rough road but its on its way to smoothing out and being way less crazy 😄
So now I'm living in Houlton, Maine, it's a quaint little town on the border of Canada. Unfortunately for this girl used to Memphis, New Jersey, and larger towns its been a rough culture shock. The girls for the most part love it up here, unless they want a mall, which there isn't one. This has lead my 11 year old to exclaim "what is this, a town for old people?" Yeah, welcome to small town life. We have three grocery stores and a wal-mart. That's about it. Oh and being single in a small town where you don't know anyone. Not fun. I held a funeral for my social life when I moved.
Projects have pretty much been small and not often. A major is English is a lot of reading and writing. Finals week this week. Papers on critical theory, Great Expectations, and other tests. My brain hurts. I have done some small projects of necessity. Hats, mittens, various other winter items. Right now in my purse I have
Dancing Phalanges!. These are my Bones inspired fingerless mits. I <3 every time I see an episode where Bones does dancing phalanges. I'm doing these in KnitPicks Stroll sport bittersweet heather and marina. So pretty!

star crossed slouchy beret

My star crossed slouchy beret made from berroco vintage in breezeway. Made this one for me. Now I am going to use the cable pattern and make a matching cowl! I'm loving this vintage yarn so nice to work with.

Today I did day one of the C25K program my phone messed up so I think I only for half the program, maybe if my legs are OK I'll try day 1 again tomorrow if not I think I'll try some yoga. Right now I'm working on as many premie hats as I can get done by next Tuesday for my local knitting guild meeting.
