I've been quiet for a long time again...

... sorry about that. 


Planning a wedding is a pain in the butt, you know? And all the decisions that I kept saying "Oh, I'll decide after Christmas..." well, guess what! 

I've only got one more shawl to knit for the wedding, though; B's is done and mine is done, so I just need to finish Melissa's. I finally found a pattern I love that reminds me of her (the beaded shawl in the Holiday VK, I'm took lazy and tired to take pictures) and it's going swimmingly, I think I might need to do extra repeats as the one thing that Melissa will object to is a small shawl, but I have about three times as much yarn as the pattern requires, so we're good there. Extra tube of beads, too. We'll play it by ear. 

I'm ready for a heat wave, here in VT. Some 30 degree weather would suuuuuure be nice, mm-hm. 

But the whole reason I wanted to write this was to say that I woke up this morning to the smells of fresh bread from the bread machine and warm chicken from the broth I am (attempting to) cooking down in the slow cooker. I want to wake up like this every morning. 

Much love to you; I have a crying baby to go and hug.

It's so nice to hear from you, Kristine. I always start to worry when there is no word.

Fresh bread. Ummm. Soon...

MMMMM...bread and soup. Sounds great. I hope you are out of the deep freeze soon. I'd love to see pictures of the shawls.

Bread machine....great idea. Surely I couldn't screw THAT up?

I went to see my surgeon for the post-op yesterday, 2/20. She had exclaimed over my book in the hospital, so you know she was getting a signed copy. But also: every time she saw me in the hospital, I was wearing handknit socks and I told her my friends made those.

Yesterday, wanting to really impress, I made sure that the socks on my feet were your elegant beaded ones.

I got there and got told by the nurse, everything below the waist off. Sure, I thought--like heck am I taking those socks off, and I left them on.

The doctor was checking me over and noticed the socks. She just kind of stared appreciatively for a moment--those were nice!--and then turned her attention back to stitches and incisions and the like, but it was fun to stop her in her tracks there. Those were cool socks!

Ya done good. And thank you.
