may

I seriously don't know what has happened to May. I was thinking that it just flew by without much happening. I decided to look through my photos so that perhaps I could feel a little better.  And I did.
Life was lived.
Beautiful moments happened.

start again

 It took me 7 weeks to get to this point in this sweater.
And 24 minutes to get to this point.  
I knew it. The entire time I was knitting that it just felt too big. I decided to take it off the needles and try it on for size.  I was right.  Tooooooo big.
I stared at it for an entire day.  And then did what we all sometimes need to do.
I cast on again last night.

Happy Knitting!

it's time

Everything has a time.  Along the journey we have been traveling the time has come to put our house on the market.  That has kept us extremely busy.  Three big purges (huge, really) have happened with the help of my awesome mother and sisters.  It feels great.

We will say goodbye to our loving home with a ton of awesome memories.  Looking forward to our future with excitement for the possibilities that lie ahead.

Happy feet.  Gotta have them.
