Back from College and knitting again.....
We went out to dinner at a very nice pub called the Capitol Brewery. Food was good and so was the beer. We met my daughter's boyfriend's family and enjoyed ourselves very much. After that we headed home and just fell into bed. We left everything until today. My hubby and I spent most of today putting the house back in order and setting up my computer and knitting room! It is so fun to have a room of one's own! (I've heard that somewhere before!) I have my books at my fingertips, my projects lined up in baskets under the long desk and all my tools in plastic boxes ready to be used. I still have my knitting basket next to my chair where I do most of my knitting, but I have moved all my knitting paraphernalia from my bedroom into my daughter's room. I will be all set until she comes home in May. I will cross that bridge when I get there. My husband is thrilled to have all my stuff out of the bedroom and off of the floor in every corner. So as I sit here at my keyboard my knitting is around me and I am happy. Now I can watch my knitting videos and knit and be comfortable all at the same time.
Now, I have mixed feelings about my last two children in college. It is all right so far but I can only imagine all the months ahead. I am going to keep busy working, knitting and spending more fun time with my husband. I think we are both looking forward to that. We have been raising our family for 27 years and now we can have time for us again. Now here are some photos of our handsome pup that is still home with us. I can't seem to keep him away from my yarn. I really think he thinks he is a cat! I will have a pic of my completed sock soon and I am waiting for some inspiration for Christmas projects. Well, must run and finish up that sock and start the next!
P.S. Kitten Knits is having a contest. Check it out and tell her I sent you! Thanks!
