Still Here!

Wow--it's been quite a while since I posted. Guess that's what happens when a person gets attacked by her own back. Yes, I've been down for the count for the last almost-month, 4 weeks today of pain and misery. However it's getting fixed on Monday, so I'm hopeful for good results and am anticipating being back to whatever passes for normal with me soon!

Just wanted to update a couple of things here. First, Entangled magazine is ready for a free preview. Do check it out. It's from Genny Stevens in NZ and I think she's done a smashing job with it!

If you've been following the story of the Great American Afghan raffle to benefit XRX's Sue Nelson, there's an update here. Angela, who won the raffle, is one of my Ravelry and Facebook friends, and I love what she decided to do. I also love that there was such wonderful cooperation and concern all across the knitting community--the nice people at Vogue Knitting helped spread the word and support the project. I have to admit I got a little teary-eyed reading Ben's post.

If I can sit up at the computer a bit later, I do have some "crafty" goodness to share. I did a project for a swap on Ravelry and documented the process, and I've been meaning to post about it. Right now I have a date with a cup of coffee and a couple of hot chocolate croissants!
