So much to do...so little coffee

First and foremost, my daughter has returned from spending the summer with her dad in PA. Her not being with me is like missing an arm...which makes knitting VERY difficult...

Speaking of knitting...

Bubba's sweater was coming along nicely until.....

Notice anything a bit off???? That's right! I started and stopped at the exact same place in the pattern 3 different times. So off to the land of rippit I go. I frogged back to where I was supposed to be and haven't touched it since because I have been preparing for the Ravelympics.

I have decided to make a pinwheel sweater as a gift and Summerbreeze for my daughter. I am making a practice pinwheel for my youngest daughter to get comfy with the pattern and yarn.

It is a very easy knit. I decided to do an afterthought arm hole as opposed to the provisional cast on that the pattern called for. The directions were not clear to me so after doing some research, I found the afterthought and thought it perfect. Gonna be GREAT!!!! I am currently on the last row and am about ready to bind off then work up the arms.

Please remember to love your family and appreciate every single second that you have with them. Yes, they may drive you crazy and yes, quiet down time is good too, but revel in their love for you and yours for them for one day, one of you will be gone and all that may be left is regret and tears. Whether it may be to mend a broken friendship or going the extra mile for a loved one, do something important today. It will come back to you ten fold.
