It feels like its been years since I’ve been online – the house was full, and I didn’t get a chance to look at anything online until today. But now the guests are gone, and the house is quiet, and we are sitting here on a cold rainy Sunday with a fire in the fireplace…and although it was nice to see family, I have to admit that I’m happy that its getting back to normal. We had a really nice Thanksgiving – it was great to see my mother, my brother and my nephew (not to mention Andrew home from school!). The meal was good and I think everyone had a good time.
One of the nice things about having a knitter visit was that I got a lot of time to sit with Mom and do a little knitting…
Yes, I started a new project – Abby. I am just about done, and I think it will be perfect for a day like today. I really enjoyed using my handspun, and my mother liked it so much she started one in Koigu from my stash!
We also took a break from the whole family on Friday to run to the yarn store – we went to Down Cellar – I really love this store, and was glad to have a chance to show it to my mother. She bought Cascade 220 in a gorgeous shade of blue and I bought some Malabrigo Silk. There was so much gorgeous yarn there that it was hard to resist buying more – but I was reasonably good.
Now it is time to for back to normal – back to work, back to school for the kids, and back to knitting my other projects. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and weekend – and now I’m going to catch up on blogs and knitting!
