My Family

Angel resting in her cat hammock.

Sophie prowling around.

Angel and Sophie mean so much to me.  Angel likes to lay around and take it easy.  Sophie likes to run around and play.

The Sun Came Out today

If you are reading this you are probably a friend or family member.   I want to say that today the fog was lifted off of me and the sun came out in my life when I woke up.  What a difference.  I feel so much better.  Life is really, really hard and depression makes it even harder.

A Finished Object!!!

I finished this hat this morning.  I'm going to give it away to charity. I knit it according to the pattern except that I used smaller needles.  It is too small for an adult head.  It will be fine for a child.  If I make it again for an adult I will need to do a few more repeats of the cable pattern before I decrease at the top.

The Definition of Insanity

... is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different  results.  Do you ever feel this way?  I do!

Knitting a Little

This is my new project.  I am practicing the Norwegian Purl with it.  Sometimes I think it is easier to throw the yarn front and back than to make all the twists and turns required of the Norwegian Purl.  This was going to be a hat for my nephew whose favorite color is yellow.  But I think I better make his hat in gold instead.  This hat will probably go to Mary Ann so she can donate it to the winter coat charity she in involved with.

This is the sweater I started a year ago.  When I get to a part that I am uncertain about I stop.  This is where I am now.  I need to pick up the stitches for the right sleeve.  I am nervous about doing this so here sits the sweater.
