Haven't been around - our motherboard on the computer fried. We're looking to get a new one from my brother in law.
Happy news - I'm going to be an aunt for the first (and possibly only) time. My sister in law is pregnant - they just got married June 24th so we weren't expecting it was going to happen this fast! They weren't trying, but they weren't not trying either.
In knitting/crocheting news:
Tons of stuff finished for my Summer of stash - my log cabin afghan, a couple of granny square afghans (granny squares made by grandma), 2 pairs of socks (for Socks 2 & both for me), my purple lace top for Summer of Lace, two more felted buttonhole bags (one as a thank you gift for my cousin Renee, and the other goes in the Christmas pile) and I don't remember what else. For baby, I've made a baby kimono & a pair of baby booties so far.
