Indefinite Hiatus

June 25, 2017

Hello there!

Since last I wrote, life has sure changed dramatically. The rest of my pregnancy went by fairly smoothly, though it was certainly challenging. Our sweet little guy arrived in early February, and we can’t imagine life without him. Shortly after his arrival, I became ill with preeclampsia (expectant mamas, be sure you know the warning signs, as it’s a dangerous condition that can occur even several weeks postpartum). Since then, we’ve been finding our new normal as a family of three (really five–can’t forget our kitties!) and love watching our son grow and learn.

I’m still knitting and sewing, though of course not nearly so much as a year ago. I’ve felt a pull to return to this space because I love chatting about making things and having a reason to take nice photos of my work. However, time with my hands free to type is limited, and right now that time needs to be spent on finishing my dissertation and applying for jobs. I’m not ready to say goodbye to this blog just yet and hope to return to it once the dissertation is finally complete, so for now I’ll say so long.

If you’d like to continue to follow my adventures in making (and everything else), you can find me on Instagram as @redknitter and ravelry as red. The formats on those platforms is much more suited to my life at the moment.

Thanks for reading!

Cheryl
