Work-in-Progress and a Happy Anniversary

Let’s start with the least important item first.  Tomorrow ends the Tour de Fleece and I am going to be done on time.


I am ready to start the toe of the second sock.  Between lunch today and my before bed knitting tonight, I will have this complete and should be able to show them off tomorrow.  This Tour has told me that I can participate in some of these events.  Next year, I want to work on something else new to me, but I have a year to decide on what it is going to be.

Now, to the Happy Anniversary part.  Today is the 50th anniversary of my parents marriage. If Mom and Lori were alive today, we’d be getting ready to celebrate it.  What a difference a year can make.  Yes, today my heart feels a bit heavy. I miss Mom, and Lori and I would have had lots of fun planning the anniversary party.  Still, Mom and Dad had 49 years of a very loving marriage and I am so glad they had that much time together.

    Wow! You rock! I’m so impressed! That was a lot of yarn to spin and it turned out beautifully. But, socks too? Double wow! They’re so pretty! I think you’re about to win the yellow jersey!

    My progress in the Tour de Fleece is disappointing. Life got busy. Time flew by. And, I’ll be lucky to finish a four ounce skein. That would be an accomplishment for me since I rarely spin. But, I had much higher hopes. Oh well. Maybe a skein this year and maybe much more next year. I can hope. 🙂

    Congratulations, Benita! 😀

    Great progress on the sock! My trip put me behind but I am working on catching up!! Reminders of your loss will keep catching you off guard…sending a hug.
