I'm pretty true to my word, just ask my friends. If I say I'll do something I'll do it. As promised yesterday, here is my progress shot of the Spiral Rib Hat:
|'Almost Handspun' 3 ply worsted wool from Stonehedge Fiber Mill|
It's ready for the decrease rows and then it will be done! That will make knit hat #50 made so far this year. Woohoo!
Tomorrow will be a sad day, all day, for me. I'll be thinking about my last moments with my Dad before he died one year ago at 7:20 AM . I'll be wearing waterproof mascara for sure.
I'm hoping this will be the last time it's a sad day and can go back to being a happy day next year. You see, overshadowed by the death of my father, tomorrow is my niece Erica's birthday. August 11th has always been a fun day and tomorrow Erica turns 29. I was so glad that I got to see her when I was up in Charlevoix last month.
Erica has just graduated from nursing school, and while I may never forgive her for switching from being my hairdresser, I'm very proud of her. She has always been challenged in school by a learning disability so this is such a big achievement for her.
Erica has landed a job at one of the largest hospitals in NYC, Mt. Sinai Hospital, and made the move to the Big Apple this week! So many changes for her -- send positive thoughts her way please!!
Now I've got to get to my treasurer's duties so I'm ready for the guild board meeting tomorrow. Hoping for a good night's rest to get through tomorrow.
