Squirrel friend where you been?

More Big Girl Knits: 25 Designs Full of Color and Texture for Curvy WomenOk I should be ashamed of myself.  I feel like I should be brought up before the yarn council for dereliction of duty.  I can not believe that I haven't posted a blog post since June!  This summer has been super crazy and I have to admit that sending Nate off to college really looped me more than I thought it would.  I have been busy knitting and reading but I haven't had the heart to do much else.  Let's never speak of this again.

What have I been doing with all my free time?  Knitting and reading.  I am working steadily on my Top 100 list I swear.  I took a mid summer break to read Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy Bundle: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest which are all
awesome.  I also watched the movie in Swedish (how classy)  I also caught up on the

 Bones book series by Kathy Reich and the Dexter series including the newest book Dexter Is Delicious
(not for the faint of heart I must say but wow what a page turner)  I love the series but the books are my favorite!
I have been knitting but not like crazy.  I finished a few small projects and did a shawl
for a swap.  Right now I am avoiding starting my christmas knitting and working sporatically on the Bountiful Bohus from More Big Girl Knits in a nice blue color.  I broke my Boye Needlemaster size 7 on it and had to get a new needle.  I went with a fixed circular this time and it is working fine.  I don't know what it is about cardigans in the round that make my needles go pop.  I can't decide if it is a combo of weight and the number of stitches or both!

I promise to post more regularly.  I have some awesome projects, hot book reviews and some fun cat photos to share if you stick with me!  Here is a sneak preview:

I call Luna the squirrel friend.  I heard a little girl on the bus say to her sister "Squirrel Friend you're nuts"  I thought it was super funny so now Jazzy and say it all the time!
