Stellaria Shawl

Where did the time go?

Just found this post from 2008. Why did I never publish it?
Where did the time go? It has been over a month since my last post.

One of my goals this year is to knit a sock a month. However, I had to rip out my half finished February socks after a "fatal error." I misread a chart and cast on to few stitches. I just have been able to start another pair.

Mysterious Ways

Okay, so I have not been doing much knitting in the last six months because I have been focusing on wellness, loosing weight, improving fitness with cardio, endurance, and flexibility. This has taken up most of my spare time. Last year I bought some beautiful yarn from Hopping Acres. I then found a sweater I wanted to make, The Lion Neck Cardigan from Custom Knits. However I was one skein short.
Yesterday we went to the Maryland Sheep and Festival. I went the Hopping Acres booth, thinking there was little hope, showed the vendor the yarn. Her eyes went large. "Just spun a skein on this on Wednesday. I can't believe this. It is on display. Let me get it. This is unbelieveable." Guess I should buy a lottery ticket.

Birthday 2011

With Spring comes my birthday. Like Spring, having a birthday is a time of reflection and renewal. The last few weeks I have been cleaning out the house; checking out corners and dusting high above where I can see. I am thankful for my wonderful husband, children, and bird. I am thankful that I get to live in a nice place, have a stable job, and most of all people that I love and that love me. Spring and birthdays are like that. Life begins again as nature awakens the dirt and decay of winter. The fragrance and sight of flowers is heart warming. And not only that, summer is only one marking period away! Yeah!

A new year begins. Hopefully with good health, love, and happiness. Spring is definitely my favorite time of year.
