I am away from home this week, but I do have knitting with me, of course! This week’s post brought to you by MAPLE LEAF everything.
Last Wednesday, I cast on socks. The yarn is Knit Picks Felici in the Maple colorway. I was working on these during our flight, and one of the flight attendants was gushing over the autumnal colors of the yarn.
I am not quite done with the foot. I’m hoping to finish everything except the heels this week.
MAPLE LEAF the Sixth
Last Sunday, I cast on for MAPLE LEAF the Sixth. I’ve only finished the first 28 rows.
My Mother-in-Law’s House
In mid-January, my mother-in-law called me and told me she was having a party in her yard Labor Day weekend. She already had the guest list written, a menu planned, and a to-do list to get her house ready. I believe I’ve mentioned on this blog that between March 2012 and November 2013, my husband and I lost 14 family members; 5 on my side and 9 on Chris’s side. My mother-in-law wanted to have a family reunion for a happy reason rather than a funeral. There’s birthdays to celebrate: two people turning 50, one turning 85, one turning 12, and one turning 10, all within about 6 weeks of each other. Plus a cousin’s daughter got married last year, but never had a reception because they didn’t have a budget for one. So we are having one giant party — 120 people invited and about 75 attending. All in my mother-in-law’s yard.
Chris and I got here on Monday. Everybody has a list of things to do. Speaking of which — I better get back to my list! See you next week for WIP Wednesday, August wrap up, the kick-off of the next HPKCHC term, September plans, and an extra special post that I’ve been saving just for next week!
