Hi Sweetie! How in the world are you? I have been so busy with taking care of Jim after his knee surgery. But I did take out some time to walk with Elmo in the park this afternoon.
The clouds don't look too menacing so far. But they say it is coming: Hurricane Sandy.
I don't know how much we will be affected. Northeast US is expecting 2 feet of snow in some areas and a loss of electricity for weeks, some say. I hope not. I prayed an extra rosary for the safety of all.
This wonderful book is not just for knitters. It is actually the story of a group of women who come together to encourage and support each other. Each character is unique and funny. It is an easy read and you will laugh and cry at some parts.
And it encouraged me to get back into knitting. A wonderful nun taught me how to knit in 3rd grade. After a series of dropped stitches and starts and stops, I finally was able to make simple items.
There is just something so soothing and gratifying seeing the stitches "grow" into something.
This is what i have been doing lately:
The light aqua is a receiving blanket based on the dish cloth pattern, really easy. Then there is the purple cowl that I knitted on the way back from Destin.

And another purple hat.
And this is what i have on my needles right now. Yikes, I hope I have enough yarn to finish it.
Thanks for visiting! Your comments always make my day!
Peace, love and joy of Jesus Christ be with you today and always.
