Hello, old friend

I can't believe its' October - Thanksgiving weekend to be presise, and I haven't posted on here for almost a year! Wow. And what a year its' been!

I finally found a job, and after 3 weeks of contract - was offered full-time permanent with full benefits! Now to get caught up on some bills.

I've been knitting a wee bit. Really need to change that side bar to reflect what's going on with my needles right now.

My oldest DD is in Mexico right now with her work. Thus I won't see her on her birthday tomorrow. So, happy birthday Bella Mia. You are my heart, be happy and safe, and have a wonderful year. I love you, M.

My son started high school. He's taking a double auto mechanics course, science math and explore tech. Poor kid! lol. And he's taller than I am now!

And my youngest, has also changed schools. She is now walking a little way to her new school, but is always with a friend, so that's ok. She loves her teachers, and has made tons of friends.

Ok, that's all for today. I'll see you soon.

I'm also working on Juneberry. I originally got the magazine specifically for this pattern, but the pattern was condensed too much (considering this is an advanced knit), and it was too difficult to understand what to do on Chart B. Thus, the Ravelry Juneberry pattern came my way via a RAK. I've just started chart D, and hope to finish that tonight. :)

Damask is also started, and it's a beautiful shawl! Plus, I just received Batic in a RAK!! lol.

Winter Lillies

Been working on a few projects over the past little while. One I really enjoyed doing was the Winter Lillies for a very good friend of mine, Shannon. I finished the short row shaping and the bind off, but ripped it back to the lace section because it seemed too small. (totally my fault, i thought i could change the short row shaping from 5 sts after the wrap to 3 sts, not realizing this would make the top border shorter. I was just trying to get the back to have a tiny bit more depth) Oh well.

So, now I've just finished working on the short row shaping again, and this time I did it as the pattern is written. But, I went up 2 needle sizes when I did the cast off.
