Much of this weekend has been spent doing housecleaning on my computer, but it paid off. Things were really starting to slow down and I wondered if maybe I’d outrgrown this computer. But a few dumped caches and going to a cleaner desktop, plus downloading some Safari enhancers has really given new life to my laptop. We’re speeding along now! Not to say that there hasn’t been knitting going on:


This is Stephanie’s pattern available for download from her site. It would be a great starter lace as the pattern is easily memorized. I used it to teach some lace newbies at our knitting group and I think it was favorably received. Maybe I’ll see some new shawls at our next meeting.

I have also been making progress on my Socks that Rock:


This yarn is pure pleasure to knit with. I can’t wait to get them done and on my feet.

And, I have joined the ABC Along (scroll down to see the button on the sidebar). The aim is to post a picture that means something to you every other week, following the alphabet. A is easy – in fact, two A’s are very special to me:


This is my younger son, Allen. He is a really special kid in many ways. Although 28, he will always be a child, but he is sweet and kind and certainly brings a spark to our lives. Raising him has been difficult, but we know we are better people because of it. He came into our lives when he was six years old and has been a very special part of our lives ever since.

And A is also for Abby:


Abby has only been a part of our lives for less than two years, but we can’t imagine life without her. She is a wonderful wife to our son, Ben, and the best mother you can imagine to little Izzy. Everyone should have such a daughter-in-law!

  1. Really love the colour of the socks.
    I think it’s great that you have a son who came to you at as an older child. I’m sure he has enriched your lives and you his.
