Happy Birthday Justin!

Justin celebrated his 20th birthday on the 20th!

The celebrating began on Friday the 16th. There was a celebration lunch for him on Sunday the 18th. Then, another celebration at home on the 20th!

He had to work late on the 19th. At midnight, Sarah, Chloe, Jonathan, Kaity, Khi, and I showed up blowing those birthday noise maker things so he could have a proper Birthday kiss from his wife! It was great! Benny would have gone too, but alas the recliner was too soft and his eyelids too heavy.

We are all so blessed to have you in our lives.

It has been said of you by many, the man of integrity and honor you have become is far beyond your years.

May this year be filled with blessings of joy, peace, and love!

I'm still plugging along on the tomten/3 and 1 hybrid. Since there are 6 balls of yarn used in each row, I keep it upstairs by our bed.

In the interest of portability, I've become smitten with dishcloth knitting. There are countless patterns of all shapes and sizes online.

I knit this one from Sugar 'n Creme beach ball blue.


Unlike entrelac knitting, garterlac is reversible, making a nice thick dishcloth.

Along with the pattern , the designer points to a really cool cast on that makes beginning the knitting super easy.

I think I'll put a single crochet border to give it a more finished look.

Mother's Day 2008

Neither Rain
Nor Chill
Nor Strep in Throat
Could keep this family from
the proper celebration
of each other on
Mother's Day

We ate and played and had a wonderful time together!


Kaity woke early to made cinnamon rolls and coffee, for Sarah and I to have breakfast in bed.

There were flowers, plants, and gifts. While "things" are lovely, this is unquestionably my most gracious blessing.

We're falling like dominoes here in doulaland.

I haven't even been interested in knitting. I'm occasionally working on a toe up sock.

Before I succumbed, I had begun designing and knitting a 3 and 1 Tomten hybrid. Maybe the fever had already started. Not sure yet, but if it turns out in reality, the way it looks in my imagination, I'll have THE COOLEST coat around!

The tea kettle beckons.
