Life has been crazy…all sorts going on. Owen’s teacher returned to school and we are starting to get back on track. My birthday came and went. I received a beautiful watch from Kevin–I will spare you the details of the drama that went along with the gift. Gracie and I are going to see Wicked on Sunday too. We are seeing the Police at Jones Beach on Monday. Friends are visiting from London on Tuesday for two weeks. A trip to Hilton Head was planned for the last two weeks of August but Gracie has mandatory swim practice–high school is taking some getting used to and she hasn’t even gotten there!
The Myrtle Leaf Shawl was growing at 10 repeats a week but the last 10 out of 40 are taking a bit longer. I was distracted by a sweater to knit for a fundraiser at Owen’s old school. However, I can’t find the other skeins of yarn. February Lady Sweater dreams dance in my head. Patons Ballybrae from the stash, some old but lovely deep green tweed from Nova Scotia from my mom’s stash (actually the Ballybrae is mom cast offs also) or a lovely new shade of Ultra Alpaca…Winter Squash. YUM!
I think part of the reason knitting has been so prolific was a knee issue. I haven’t been going to they gym. I have a tilted knee cap. Anyone ever have such a thing? Physical therapy is decreasing the discomfort and I should be good as new.
