Yes, the trials of knitting! Last night after completing about 2/3 of Andy's first sock, with detailed fair isle pattern and all....I pulled it out entirely and started all over. I had the wise thought to try it on and it wouldn't even fit over my size 10 women's foot. I know it would never have fit Andy's size 10 man's foot! I do have a regained sense of excitement for the sock and will persevere to the end!
On a happier note, my sister finally emailed a photo of the felted bag I made for her!Here you see the one mistake I made...the attached the handles incorrectly! The bag is still functional, albeit a bit funky and definitely handmade!

I am not sure if it is the dreary weather. Or that the holidays are over and I am not going to see anyone in our family again soon. Or that everyday that passes is one closer to the one-year anniversary of my mom's death....but I just feel ho-hum-drum.
The snow melted and we've been having unseasonably warm weather in the upper 50's. Everything looks so mucky and yucky and the leaves are wet and stuck to everything. There are copious amounts of mud everywhere.
We're slowly getting back into the swing of things and at least we have our usual play groups and preschool meetings this week to keep us busy.
My moon returned last month and the hormonal changes have been very significant.
Blah. Just blah.
I am trying to see the good in things. I am not crying all the time. I just can't seem to feel "up". Perhaps it will change as we gain ownership of our house on the 22nd and I have a new project to take on, new spaces to explore.
I can only hope.
