I have FINALLY completed something.....1 the blackpurl colorway ....of course. However, I have yet to take a picture...batteries,... I need to get some.
These last few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. I am hoping that soon, things will slow least a little bit.
We found out that DH will be deploying......we thought it might be possible but, to be honest I was NOT prepared...... I feel okay about it today and I am sure things will be fine. Thankfully, my sister will be moving closer to me around the same time for a few months.
In other news, I will be meeting up w/the fitchick this weekend @the beach and I just may be able to convince her to hit some yarn stores.......I can HARDLY wait. I have to find some sock yarn for my neighbors sweet little girl...they are PCSing to ALASKA (PCSing=moving). So, I think some girly warm wool socks are in order and maybe a pair of mittens.

Long time No post........well, hopefully things will be different around here for awhile. We have had so much going on but, it seems that things should be slowing down a bit (fingers crossed)!!!
I FINALLY was able to sit down and knit bit the other day and I am now stuffing a seaming up my little boys's cute!
I have been really wanting to knit for this....I have been really intrigued by the idea of knitting with purpose, and as a way to provide comfort to someone who needs to know that someone is thinking and praying for them We serve a congregation of elderly people and there are many who have chronic illnesses. I was inspired by this book.
I am hoping that after I have completed the next few projects, that I can begin working on a shawl for someone............ maybe, within our own congregation.....I am looking into patterns and yarn choices.
