Rather than making excuses for over a month of radio silence, I will just say – HEY! Thanks for the messages and emails. LollyKnitting Around is not down or on an extended hiatus.
Of course, I have a lot to catch you up on, so, I’ll let the photos – and a few words – tell the story:
Late October: lots of apples – mom and dad and I did a little daytrip over to West Virginia where we bought a couple of bushels. I did a lot of canning and baking – like these apple cider cupcakes, for instance.
More floor + painting! The entire second floor of the house is done: Kris’s office, my office/craft room, the master bedroom and closet, the hallway, and half the stairway to the first floor. Lots of work and lots of reward. It feels like a whole new place, even though we moved in 9 years ago this month.
Mimi + Baby V came to town! It was such a joy to see them both – Baby V turned one at the end of September. She’s the belle of the ball and seeing my sister and her was an absolutely wonderful treat. I had a Baby Owlet sweater waiting for her arrival. Full details about the pullover are on my Ravelry notebook page.
I turned 30. It wasn’t all that bad.
Thanksgiving with the W family – wonderful times! We were rocking the red this year
House is decorated for the holidays and while still under renovation, things are pretty ordered. More renos to come – first floor flooring, and some kitchen upgrades… but that can probably wait till 2011.
~ More knitting to share next time ~
Thanks as always for reading
