Knitting Weekend

Ok, so here's the scoop. I should have been knitting on one of the 4 or 5 projects that I already have on my needles...but no, not me. I had to cast on something new. I joined a Block Of The Month KAL where you make a 12x12 square each month to be finished as a throw/afghan. Since I'm behind, I casted on and finished January's block, and then casted on and finished February's too. Tonight I'll be casting on for March. It's been fun and a nice little respite from what I was knitting. Sometimes I think we need to do that, don't you.

I'm also knitting some baby items for a charity kal, and I will donate these items in honor of CorrinaBean. I love to do things in her honor and in memory of her. I try to keep her memory alive in everything that I do.

I love you my Angel Pie!

1278 Days

That's how long it's been since I last saw Corrina's beautiful face, or held her soft hand, or kissed her sweet cheek.

I came across a poem Barbara Bush wrote (she lost a daughter also) and it just seems to say what I want to say......

So, I am glad not that my loved one has gone,
But that the earth she laughed and lived on was my earth, too,
That I had known and loved her,
And that my love I’d shown.
Tears over her departure?
Nay, a smile
That I had walked with her a little while.

First lady , Barbara Bush

As for knitting projects, I'm almost finished with the needle case. I'm still plugging along on the Berroco Metallic socks, and the tank top, but I also started, and am almost finished with, a knitting bag for my sister's birthday present. So all is going well on that front.

Monday, Monday

I've been missing for a little while, but have gotten lots accomplished. I truly did finish the Hemlock Ring Throw, and Scott loves it. It knit up so easy and it turned out gorgeous after blocking. I think I'll be making another one of those soon.

I also finished the Tofuties Tee ( I didn't use Tofuties though, I used Knit Picks Essential). It's blocking as I speak and will just need to be seamed up.

I have three projects on my needles right now also...a pair of socks using Berroco Sox Metallic, a circular needle case using 100% cotton, and a v-neck tank using Lion Brand Homespun.

I'm keeping busy, and loving the time I make to knit. I can lose myself or spend time remembering my beautiful Corrina. I just wish I could knit her something.

I love you my angel!
