KNITTING GAL

June 01, 2007

Missing in action.......


I have been very busy not knitting...so hence no pictures. Work has finally made me sick. I was so laid up last weekend with stomach pains that the doctor thought it was my gall bladder. Went for ultra sound and everything was fine!....Just stress from work situation. So I have decided to try and forget it as much as possible and concentrate on all the good in my life. For one thing I finally mastered a lace pattern I was working on. It is a sweet little summer dress for my new niece and boy did I rip that sucker out so many times until I figured out the flow of the pattern. Now I am swimming along. I should also mention that I count my lovely grown up children as one of my biggest blessings! I couldn't do anything without them. I so miss having them all home like in the good old days. Sigh :o(


My knitting group at the library for the children has finished up for the summer and the girls still want to come in. So we compromised, no new projects but I would be available for help on their own projects. Everyone was happy and this way they can drop in on Friday afternoons when ever they like. Some of them will also join our Monday afternoon group when school is finished.


I was so excited about going to stitches in the fall buy wow those classes really cost a bundle. With two kids in college and still liking to eat and all that, I may miss it. Ah well that is life. But I am thrilled that we will be going to Vermont in July. I will get to visit my very favorite yarn shop in Rutland. Lamb's Wool Shop is so amazing. It is a small store in the back of the owner's home and she packs it full of the best yarn and supplies. This is where I first found self stripping sock yarn before any place else had it in the New Jersey area. So...that is a really nice thing to look forward to. Well I must run and do work stuff. I promise to do pictures of little dress and maybe some more pics of my sweet pup. Enjoy the great sunny weather and you will find me out in the garden this weekend.

I'm in NH, so not far from VT at all! I think I'll have to check out the lys up there next time we visit (hubby is from VT).
