While we were away, the weather has made a turn-around. Coffee on the front porch this morning in shorts!
Happy Memorial Day! I have taken time today to read a lot of facebook statuses (is that a word, “statuses”?) and reflected on how lucky we are to be Americans. And I, personally, am grateful for those who have served our country, past and present, so that I can be free. I am the proud daughter of an American veteran and while my father’s been gone from my “earthly” life for 25 years, I still get emotional when I think of him.
I’ve finished another “Celebration” sock but have to stop before the pair is done to make a special pair of socks for my big brother for his 55th birthday! Yikes. How can my siblings be getting up to that kind of age? We don’t act like old people but I remember thinking that when my parents hit that 50 mark, that they were darned near dead! 🙂
I also finished the navy cowl which will likely see my Esty shop in the next day or so. AND! I made my first Esty sale … the Birthday party socks are going to a wonderful young woman in Louisiana tomorrow. Very exciting and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to knit and have people appreciate my garments.
S0, new on the needles are my big brother’s birthday socks and it will be time, after that to focus on the next Prima Dogma design… and getting the rest of the house cleaned up and ready for my girls to visit.
Happy Memorial Day … and blessings to our service men and women past and present.
