The reason I have been AWOL

Wow, I am surprised at how long it has been since I updated. Things here have been SO incredibly busy. My daughter is in track and has practice every day after school or a meet and needs to be picked up. That takes a bit of dinner time and seems to rush the evenings by quickly. My 9 year old son is in baseball and adds more to the time crunch. It has been a joy watching him play. He plays through the middle of June and the track meets are over this week.

With all the craziness of school, track, baseball, dinners, laundry and 6 kids in general, I have been knitting. I received an invitation to a baby shower for one of our older babysitters. She moved away several years ago. I hear from her at Christmastime through cards and have been able to follow her changing addresses. I was surprised to get the invitation and very much wanted to do something special. Since I now know how to knit, this is what I made for her and it took all of the 3 weeks I had to get it finished in time. I put the last row on at 6 in the morning, threw it in the wash, wrapped it and was out the door by 10:15 - phew!

That turned out beautifully! It has been awhile since you've blogged (since my birthday to be exact, lol.) Glad to see you back.

Thank you for the comments! I learned how to knit from my mom, 30 some years ago.
