I'm sorry for being gone so long - my dear mother-in-law passed away in Florida, so I've been distracted by that. She died with her husband and six children with her, so I know she was at peace to have them all there. She will be missed by many.
In addition, a nasty virus attacked me and I was out of commission for a week. And by that, I mean i was so sick that I cancelled a facial apt, a day of work in the pharmacy and most serious of all, I did very little knitting (gasp!). But now I am back and ready to blather on about life.
Today is another perfect summer day. I will be headed to the beach shortly - am waiting to take some blueberry bread from the oven. These are the little loaves that I plan to give away and to freeze. Two full sized loaves are in the oven - both kids will be here this weekend, so I think they will be eaten up quickly.
I got my Bistro Lace Shawl completed. I love it and am thinking that I might wear it to the funeral service for my mother-in-law. She loved to see my knitting, so I think it is appropriate to wear a hand knit shawl.
We have been having a lot of fun on the beach, here is my grandson playing with a toy that makes volcanoes in the sand.
And here is TanMan doing what he loves most.
And one last finished project. This project has been done for months, but I finally got it blocked. I think this might be my favorite knititng project ever. It took a long time to knit, but it is such a work of art. Maybe I should get another kit at Stitches next week??
The Massai Shawl is a Crystel Seyfarth kit - I can't wait to wear it!!
Thanks for waiting for me to come back.
