…the biggest and best news of all is the arrival of my first grand baby, Genevieve Lee who was born on July 21st.
Some months ago, I was fortunate to be able to sign up for an online class with Amy Herzog on Custom Fit Sweater Knitting. We started at the very beginning – with the process of swatching, which I embraced whole-heartedly! I knit swatches from a wide variety of yarns.
The end of July is upon us and that means I have some new things to share with you all!
My July Loopy Safari project was Thea Coleman’s Greyhound Shawl – I knit mine out of BMFA Socks that Rock and it turned out very well! I liked the pattern very much – it will be a welcome item come fall – just enough to keep the chill away with rich deep colors!
Today, something truly amazing happened, SCOTUS in a 5-4 ruling said that all citizens of the United States of America have the right to marry whomever they choose.
I am sad that it was not unanimous and sadder still at some of the things that were said by the four dissenters – namely Justices Scalia and Thomas. It is apparent that even appointment to the highest court in the land does not preclude one from being a complete and total idiot.
Bravo to Justice Kennedy for the closing paragraph of his opinion which I believe are the sweetest words I have read in a very long time.Read More
In a few short weeks, my first grand baby will be here and I could not be more excited. As you can imagine, I have been doing some knitting for this little one. It was a pleasant task to knit my favorite baby sweater pattern – EZ’s Baby Surprise Jacket for my first grand baby! I think it turned out beautifully and it will get some use before she grows, as it is chilly at night in Northern Michigan. I made a pair of Saartje’s Booties and a rolled brim hat with the remainder of the skein. I am eager to head to Michigan tomorrow to spend some time with my daughter, attend her baby shower, and enjoy all things baby for a few days.Read More
