Here I go again! Blogging and knitting!
I have missed writing this blog as much as I have missed talking to some of my good friends left back in the US while I moved to Israel. Oh, yea, I am definitely aware of the wonders of modern technology, I can call, Whatsup and Skype all I want and it is wonderful, but… It does not satisfy my craving to hold certain hands or be held by them. To pop in for a cup of tea and a cookie, ok, ok a whole bunch of cookies and possibly some cake. Or a sew and drink session with my friend Tamar.
I have been writing this blog in my head for weeks but had no time at all to sit down and actually write anything. Most days even pulling out my trusty laptop was out of the question.
Well, some of the pressure is off now. So here I go again!
After such an introduction you might ask me what happened? The answer is that I have become that dreaded creature – a Mother-In-Law!
That is right DS#1 is now a married man!
The preparations for the wedding were hectic, exhausting, at times exasperating and utterly nervewracking. The wedding itself has been wonderful, happy and best of all it did end at some point.
I have not knit much for a few months, then suddenly picked up my needles, frogged an almost finished project and was off, madly knitting a scarf using a new to me garter tab technique.
Since then I made another project using this technique – either a large scarf or a small shawl to keep DH warm. Sorry, no photos yet – it needs to be blocked fist. One more shawl started and, and, and… I seem to be in the middle of the full-blown startitis attack. There is a pair of socks, mitts and a few baby sweaters on the needles already!
DS #4 turned 10 months yesterday. He is now fully mobile, mainly on all fours, but he is going into the upright mode more and more.
He loves all things knit or crochet and is interested in all my projects. He tries to be helpful and I am very thankful that opening zippers is so far beyond his abilities.
These are the main news items on my oldest and my youngest kids. The projects (a.k.a. as kids) are all well. And I am sure I will be writing about them later on.
