I break for socks:)

Well, we have finally seen the sun and gotten rid of the mildew growing under our knees (eww)! The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day here in Merlin. Since last I posted, dear readers, life has indeed, gone on. This past weekend was another time of missing church (I have been so bad…

Bloggy Blahs, but I did have a decent week!

Life has just been moving along. Nothing earth shattering, nothing really new, so I’ve been following a whole bunch of blogs and commenting throughout the blogosphere – in English and occasionally in German (die arme Deutschen!). And it’s been a lot of fun. Christa and Grainnee, thank you for posting comments here! I have so…

That’s my boy! I’m so proud:)!

One of many

Moonlight on Purl

Well, I finished my last bits of daylight this evening sitting outside, listening to Episode 80 of Brenda Dayne’s Cast-on podcast. I worked on the February Lady Sweater, with its gull lace pattern that is so easy to remember, but interesting enough to enjoy watching it grow.  The sweater traveled with me today to a…

Well, dear readers, it’s been a nice weekend, albeit a fairly quiet one until yesterday:)  Had court Friday morning and then a meeting at DSS which really did not require my presence, so I skipped it.  Got home, returned phone calls, spent some time with John then settled into some knitting once I was off…
