And I am trying to get my head around how to work posting here into my life in a realistic way. Not yet sure how to do that (obviously), and I haven't taken any good pictures of knitted finished objects, even though I have been knitting. The latest is a little sweater, short-sleeved, knitted out of some Blue Skies Silk Alpaca that I got when I was at WEBS in March (I could write a whole ode about how much I loved WEBS); the yarn is a lovely navy blue, and I think I'll wear this one a lot when it's done.
Other things have been happening around here that aren't knitting related. Just to show a few:
(Photo removed for now)That's Older Daughter. With her license. Who would have thought? She's loving the independence (which is limited by the fact that we don't have three cars, and have no immediate plans for changing that situation). And I am loving the fact that I have someone who is currently eager to run errands - I've been waiting for this day... I'm also loving the days that I have managed to take the train into work so she can take the car to school and pick me up afterwards. I always loved taking the train when we lived in the Bay Area, but with kid drop-off and pick-up, it hasn't made sense. I'm hoping to work more of that into my schedule next year.
We also have a new family member:
She wants to be just like him when she grows up.
When she's not sleeping.
