Long Time No See

Dee:   Hello, although I’m not sure anyone actually took notice (I mean I have no clue if anyone reads this blog or not) however, I had taken a long break from blogging. You see, 2016 was a particularly difficult year for me.  I lost both of my parents in a few months time.  My dad passed in the spring and my mom more recently.  She had a massive stroke on election day and then passed the following day.  The world became very unkind and I retreated to grieve and save myself.  I thought I was doing pretty well until my mom’s birthday came around.  Her birthday just happened to be on inauguration day.  Again, the world was a very unkind place that day in particular as I grieved  her first birthday without her.  So I’ve remained in seclusion from blogging.

By all accounts 2017 looks to be a very promising year for my family.  We adopted a beautiful six year-old westie named Finn who has become a particularly bright spot in my life.  My sons are grown and there are weddings to look forward to in the near future.  My work continues to delight me and there are always adventures, friends, crafting and knitting to be had.  I seem to have emerged from the fog and I am rejoining society once again.  My loving family and great friends are a huge part of my recovery.  Thank you to all

So look forward to seeing some fun and happiness return to this page in the near future.

Make America kind again.

    Hello Dee,
    My heart goes out to you. My goodness that’s a lot. It’s good to hear that 2017 is a better year for you and congratulations on the puppy. I’m putting your blog on my blogroll and am looking forward to your next post. Take care.

    Goodness, you and I are on the same knitting path.
    I made Hoarfrost in Lima. (You sent me a message in Ravelry about the number of skeins it used) Actually I made 2, white and blue. Both were gifts. I also figured out how to add rows to the pattern, so if you find you want to make it bigger, let me know.
    Weekender is on my to make list and I have Shepherds Own in my stash also.
    And I’m just finishing up Winter Honey, another Andrea Mowry design, in Barrett Wool, Wisconsin Woolen Spun, on a size 10 needle. I love this yarn.
    What’s next on your list….?

      I ended up using bright spring green Lima for the Weekender, I’m only half way through. FIngers crossed that I have enough yarn, I only have five skeins. Next up might be another Andrea Mowry design, Free Your Fade. I’ve already knit Find Your Fade 🙂 I really love her designs and how she writes her patterns.
