I have not yet completely disappeared from the planet. As you can see, I have still been knitting, albeit slowly.
The new job has been very busy and fun, but I have still managed, after 6 long months, to finish the Laar sweater! It involved doing a lot of techniques that were either completely new to me or that I had only done maybe once before. And yet it still turned out wearable with no obvious flaws. It’s a success!!
