Where to Start

So much has been going on since my last post I don't even know where to start. I guess with hurricane Gustav. We evacuated and everyone was fine but we did have some minor damage to the house. That's the main reason I haven't been posting. We've been very busy trying to get repairs made and the insurance adjuster still hasn't even been out to look at it. It's been incredibly stressful. On top of that work has been very hectic. Then family came to visit this week, which is wonderful and I've had a great time with them being here. But you know how family coming from out of town can be really crazy at times?

Well, I did at least get some knitting done while I was evacuated. I started and finished this Ice Queen all while evacuated for Gustav. It's knit with Colinette Parisienne in the Marble color. Here is my Ravelry project page for it. I loved making it and the beads are wonderful. I can't wait for it to get cold enough to wear it, which might be one day all winter here in New Orleans but I still love it.

Since coming back from the evacuation I've been working on Jeannie but haven't taken in more progress pics. It just seems to come along very slowly. I've also been working on some design projects that I can't talk about right now but they are coming along nicely. Hopefully it won't be quite so long between posts this time.

I can't believe they still haven't been out to see your house! Adjusters can be such a pain to work with. Hope it's all settled soon.
We've been crazy but I'd love to see you!
