Classic Lines Sweater finished

Started this in April 2011, finished January 2014.   So very glad this is finished and I love how it came out.  Must say that knitting with lace weight held double can be tedious......

Sorry about the picture colors.... strangely enough, both pics reflect the color of the sweater, just depends on the light...  :)

Happy New Year!

Yes, I know, it's already January 10, but the sentiment is the same.  I'm hoping that 2014 is wonderous for us all.

I can say this about 2014:  it's the year my son will marry his love.  That makes me so very happy!  It's the year that I hope to have the bulk of our credit card paid off.  It's the year I plan on focusing my energies on knitting beautiful projects and fun whimsical ones -- a bit of both.

Let's remember to be kinder to others, smarter about our choices, and filled with love for ourselves and the world around us.

Merry Christmas, Happy Yule!

Hubby and I are blessed that we get to have our son with us this Christmas, thanks to our lovely soon to be DIL:  she got him plane tickets to come home for the holidays.

Sadness that we couldn't have our daughter with us as well, but we know that she is surrounded by our love, and spending the day with her wonderful boyfriend.

May this day bring peace and love to all, and promise.

This and that

Thanksgiving was a wonderful time, with the exception that our kids weren't with us.  But we did have a friend from Tulsa come visit, so that was nice.  :)

I was diagnosed with pneumonia on Black Friday, yay.  Started meds, didn't really cut it, went to work on the Monday, overdid it, and ended up even worse.  Got new meds which I think are starting to kick this, but I did take the rest of the week off work.

My hubby is taking really good care of me.  The folks at his work even sent me flowers!

Getting some knitting done, not doing any chores, and just trying to get better.  I hate being sick.

Adelaide is done

All the ends are woven in, the armholes seamed up, and only the soaking and blocking are left.  I did, of course, try it on --- it fits like a dream!!!

I need to practice taking selfies, because all of them so far of me wearing this marvel are horrid.  So until the time I can get a decent pic, here are the latest.
