Normalcy and Knitting

Our home has returned to some sense of normalcy. Although with normalcy we have a bit of loneliness, without mom here and dad gone, and no family visiting.

Mom being back in Florida, and on her own, has also brought a feeling of worry that I've never experienced. Is this what it is like to have a child off on their own, away from home? Trying not to call her too often to check up on her, slowly finding a happy medium of calls and trust in God (and dad) watching over her. She is doing well over all and I'm really proud of her. I'll bet dad would be too.

On the knitting front.
Made a pair of socks for sister Laura to give to her mother-in-law for Christmas. Laura has worn the ones I made for her all summer as a pair of slippers and the MIL admired them. So, she will be lucky enough to get a pair. I don't give things away that I've made very easily, but I know she will appreciate them, and Laura appreciates it also. Here they are:

Have started the Cardigan for Arwen for myself. My friends back in CT gave me all the yarn I needed to make this cardigan I've admired for some time. Considering that was a year ago, figured now was as good a time as any to get it going. Here it is in its' infancy:


  1. Love those socks! What pattern is that?

  2. Thank you! Bandwagon by Phreadde Davis that I tweeked slightly in order to go top down instead of toe up.

  3. Thanks! I will definitely be adding these to my list!

  4. Yay for Arwen. She was my first sweater, and I love her dearly!
