Boy did that last month go by fast. The girls and I went to Texas for our vacation. If you've read my past posts, you know I lived in Texas for a long time. I've been back home in MN for a long time, but there will always be a piece of me that longs to live in Texas. When I drop over the Oklahoma hills down across the Red River, I just grin. And when Anna runs to the door of my friends house to be enveloped in hugs I know I've done something right to instill my love of Texas in my girls.
I have been busy on the spinning/knitting front. My nephew is having a baby in the fall so I spun some beautiful fiber and have been busy knitting it up into a baby blanket. I made Kyle and his Anna an afghan for their wedding present. This time, I spun the yarn myself into a fingering weight and using the same pattern, I'm creating a baby blanket. Pictures to follow. I also knit another baby blanket since I wanted a more utilitarian gift for them to use. And just to top it off, my niece is also pregnant and due in a few weeks. I'm working on a little sweater for her little girl. This is a Florida baby, so a lightweight sweater seemed the way to go.
Hopefully, I've still got readers. I'll do better, lots of pictures coming up. Baby blankets to show off. Soon babies too!
