SYB Insanity

I'm currently 6 months into knitting my Sock Yarn Blankie and can confidently say I'm halfway to my expected end point.  Well, my originally projected end point.

There's been some suggesting going on.  Suggestions regarding the size of the blanket.  Some seem to think that a big bed-size blankie is the the blankie for me -- I'm not sure, but we'll see.

In the past week I've been able to meet up with two other SYB knitters -- one at WWKIP Day and the other, my dear Wendy who came to visit one last time before her big move.  


If SYB was a in-home sales company, I'd have like 10 people in my downline by now!  I've some how managed to make the blankie look so interesting that several others in NYGK have asked for starter kits and I've happily complied.  Before I leave for Nica, I'll be sure to snag photos with each of them. :)

Apple in a Cup

Emily doesn't like to hold cold apples.  Thanks to IKEA, she has a little solution.

One more week of 20s

In seven days I will be 30 years old.  

Each time I try to sit down and reminisce about the last 10 years, I'm overwhelmed.  So many things that mattered to me 10 years ago are insignificant now.  Others are even more important.  I've changed a lot, but some things are still the same.

I feel good about turning 30.  

I have an amazing husband, two great girls, a family who loves and supports me, a purpose, a faith that becomes more unshakeable with each passing day, great friends (some of who are more than a decade old).

I pray that at 40, a lot of these statements will still be true. :)
