Let's Try This Again

I have been gone for almost a year.  When I say gone, I mean gone from this blog but still very much present in my family, work and knitting.  Why have I not written in this blog for so long?  I have no idea.  Been busy.  Not very technologically savvy.  I'm sure there are other reasons buried deep in my psyche, but let's try this again.

Henry is doing great by the way.  He has friends at school, has stuck with baseball and improved considerably, and he's still the funny, clever, quirky boy I love so much.  He is a happy well adjusted 11-year-old boy who loves baseball, roblox, cats, pop tarts, Calvin and Hobbes, chocolate brownies and Zaca Tacos (our favorite Mexican restaurant).

I made four Cecily Glowik MacDonald sweaters this summer.  They all turned out great but I think my torso is longer than I thought.  I'm working on a fifth pattern of hers but forgot a buttonhole so have to frog about 10 rows to put one in.  I will try to take some pictures of my various projects and post them on this blog and on Ravelry.

Forty-six is fast approaching.  I have not lost a few but I have purged quite a bit and continue to do so.  I figure I can be a work in progress and still be "46 and fabulous!"


  1. Don't lose hope -- just blog when you feel inspired. :)

  2. Hi there! i saw you over at Cold Antler Farm and thought I would drop by. I was born in Chicago and I am retired in Arkansas now but I also had 4 children (just not 3 at one time.....bless you!) and I am a grandmother several times over. I taught myself to knit several years ago but have not made a sweater...yet. I am Saminar on Ravelry. You sound very talented. I did have my house in the country for awhile and am trying to move back North to be loser to those grand children. I am Irish so I share your dreams of the Isles. I hope you keep blogging when you can!

    1. closer to the grandchildren...if I could type I'd be dangerous!
