We are getting ready to go back to Georgia for a few days to attend DD1’s graduation, she will be receiving her Master’s Degree and I am very excited and happy for her. She has gone to school every other Saturday for 2 years, while working full time and done an enormous amount of work to graduate. But I hate going back to GA, the humidity is so horrible and I am so allergic to everything there. I have gotten used to opening windows and sitting outside and being able to breathe. I can even sit outside on the patio at a restaurant while in CO, not something I could ever do in GA. In addition, we have to drive so we can take the dogs, Di has to be watched so carefully I cannot leave her in a kennel and she cannot fly. So we rented a minivan and we are going to load in both dogs, all of our traveling junk, and of course some books on tape and knitting and drive all the way back to a state that I hate. I know I will have a good time with my daughter and I am proud of her, so I plan on having fun even if my allergies kick up and I am dripping all day. And my reward is shopping, DD2 and I are going shopping this weekend for cooler clothes, the weather has been so crazy here that I have not put all the winter clothes away and things I can wear in CO in the summertime are not wearable in Atlanta. Good excuse, huh??
Here is a picture of the Wee Tiny Sock I made for Darcy, my swapee. I used Panda Wool by Crystal Palace Yarns and it is so soft and lush, I really am going to have to buy more of it. This is the Red Cinnamon colorway, I hope Darcy likes it.
I am still working on the sweater of many stitches, I figure it will be good for knitting in the car on our trip to GA, and of course the two pairs of socks that I started. I do seem to have startitis right now, cause I am ready to start a baby blanket and a lacy scarf. Oh well, it’s all good, and it keeps me busy.
I hope everyone has a productive day!
