And on the knitting front:
Some kettle dyed Aracunia...gorgeous I tell ya. Oh, yeah, AND I'm knitting two socks at once on 1 circular needle...the yarn is Lang, I think, and the colorway is Beach. Perfect for this time of year.
The pattern is from this book....a great book if you ask me. It really shows you how to do this.One of my sisters' FO's. I had to repair a small hole for her. It is beautiful cotton. Just perfect for the summer.
So, a quick update on the family: We had PROM
Mothers of the 13 year kids (our school goes from Kindergarten through 12th) Luncheon Graduation....YES, our speaker was Tim Russert. This was just a few short weeks before his tragic passing. He gave a tremendous address and we all felt so sad upon hearing of his death...we all, the class of 2008 and families, felt we knew him. God Bless him.
Then it was onto 8th grade graduation...here is the beautiful girl with her dad and I.
And then our oldest turned 20!! How did that happen.
Then we had a visit from our nephew, his wife and their kids. Here is the baby, Natalie Rose, outside on my back porch...a total fluke shot, but it turned out great.
All this, whew...I'm tired. Here's to you all...have a great summer. I will post again soon, I promise.
