Where the heck have I been?

1) September 7: closed on my new townhouse
2) September 13-16: moved a lot of stuff
3) October 5-9: Rochester, Minnesota for the annual meeting of the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association
3) October 12-14:  Breckenridge, Colorado for a friend's wedding
4) October 14-17:  Lubbock, Texas for the annual meeting of the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association
5) October 17-22:  San Antonio, for a little vacation (after all, I was already in Lubbock, only an 8 hour drive away!  And my chauffeur was another knitter!)

And then I did next to nothing (except move more boxes around and, oh, yeah, go to my regular job on a daily basis) until.....

6) November 18-19:  Sister and brother-in-law visited on their way to Mom's for Thanksgiving
7) November 21-24:  Thanksgiving at Mom's!

And now -- since last Saturday, the 25th, I've been in Chicago for yet another conference.

As you can imagine, I still have boxes to unpack, but I have finished some knitting projects, including finishing a pair of much-needed and long-languishing gloves for myself.

It's really hard to take a picture of your own hand!

I also worked a bit of conductive thread into the tips of the right index finger and thumb, so I can use my iPhone while wearing them. It really works!

Those gloves are gorgeous -- so you! And I didn't know they made conducting thread that you could knit into gloves. That is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Hope you're getting settled in okay. I really enjoyed our drive back from Lubbock!

I bought some of that thread but have yet to get it into a glove. I mean to use it in the pair on the needles now, and also to retrofit other pairs for smartphone action. Glad to hear it works.

OK, so where did you buy the yarn? I only found a 2 pound cone. If you bought a 2 pound cone, I'll buy some from you!

OK, I missed the good links. I'm off shopping!
