So here's the story...

Yeah, I know. I'm awful.

The thing is, I just haven't been knitting much! This blog was an offshoot of my main blog. I discovered that I had a good number of male readers, and somehow I just felt like there was a lot of knitting posts at the time that really wouldn't appeal to them.

So, Givin' Knit Away was born.

I LOVE the title. I really don't care for my other blog title, but I'm kind of established with it now. So eh.

Anyway, since I'm not knitting much, I have little to say here, but I don't want to shut it down.

For now I guess, if you come here and there's nothing new, you can always go to my other blog to see what I'm up to.

I just wanted to explain my hiatus. I really haven't deserted y'all. :-)

I have actually been knitting! These are the tiniest preemie booties. Aren't they sweet? These are for the Itty Bitty Knits KAL on Ravelry, for June. Yep, June! I'm done! I'm not doing the end of the month scramble this time. Maybe I can actually get ahead for July!!

What have y'all been knitting?

Proof that I've actually been knitting

I finished the Fishtail Hat that I made for the Dempsey Center! It used almost exactly one ball of Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton. It is soooo soft. And shamelessly modeled by my unsuspecting six-year-old's head :-)

See? I really have been knitting! And you all just thought I was a slacker...
