Don’t you just love a good makeover?

Before:

And After:

P2120009

The change is actually more dramatic, but it’s hard to catch a moving target!
On the knitting front, I have continued to work on Rogue. I know – I said I needed to work on some other projects, but since when have you believed anything I had to say on that score? I just have the right front to finish from the armhole to the shoulder and the body will be done. I am really anxious to get to the hood – that’s what drew me to the pattern in the first place.

On the school front I finished the last paper for my sociology class (do I hear a few strains of the Hallelujah Chorus?). Just the final and I will be done. Then I start on the Sociology of Aging. I think this will be an interesting class. One required reading is “Tuesdays with Morrie”. Finally, something fun to read! My prize for finally finishing the sociology class is a trip to the Acorn Street Yarn Shop in Seattle. My friend and I will probably go Feb. 26th.

Good news – My kids called this week and they are moving back to the States!!! They’re not sure exactly when – probably after the baby is born. It makes a lot more sense to have Izzy in England since they are covered under National Health. I am so excited about having them closer. And my daughter-in-law is becoming a true knitter. My son complained that every time he asks her to do something she says, “Just one more row!” Way to go, Abby! She finished her first scarf and is now working on a poncho. She even offered to knit me one! No one has ever offered to knit me anything. I may have to wait awhile because her life is going to very, very busy in about two and half months. But I shall be patient.

  1. How wonderful that the “kids” are moving back to the states and you’ll be so much closer to your grandbaby!

    The first time I was a Grandma, I was amazed at how much love I had for that little baby. And I love her even more now that she’s 9. I’ve been blessed to live less than an hour away from her.

    My second Granddaughter, due April 4, is 2,000 miles away. Makes me want to cry everytime I think about it. Sure beats having her in England, though.

    I’m very happy for you.

  2. that really is such good news about having your family closer – especially now that it’s about to get bigger! you’ll be working on baby knits before you know it!

  3. I am so happy for you! When my daughter and her family moved 2 1/2 hours away, I couldn’t stand it…I can’ imagine having my children or grandchildren in another country! I’d love to see your Rogue!
