I'm still alive - and still knitting

It has been quite a while. This summer just sped by, and it seems that I just got caught up in all of the traveling, relaxing and having fun with the family. Before I knew it, I was back in school and going 75 mph. It is a crazy life we live. I always think that I will be able to get the mess in my house under control if I just clean 20 - 30 minutes a day - and that is true. The thing that I forget is that I am exhausted at the end of the day and have NO desire to clean at all - thus the incredible mess in the house!

I discovered "Facebook" this summer. I had been on it for a while, but many of my high school and college friends are now on it, so it has been fabulous hearing from those people again. I've gotten together with some, have talked baseball with others and generally caught up on the past 15 -20 years. That has been TOTALLY AWESOME. (Is my '80's culture showing?)

I finally finished this sweater for my daughter. She LOVES it. It took me about a year and a half, which is really embarrassing, but I found it really boring to make. Every time I would pick it up, I would kind of snooze after a couple of rows. I'm glad I finished it, and also glad that she is so happy. (even though she has goofy smiles in these pictures.)

Hope life is good wherever you are.

I hear you on the facebook thing, it really is a time stealer. The sweater is really cute. Nice to see you back.

Yes, I totally agree on the Facebook thing too! What a cute sweater--glad thing the sizing worked out even though it took longer than expected. I am currently trying to muster the energy to finish a cardigan for myself with will not fit me soon, as I am 14 weeks pregnant and not getting any smaller--good thing it's a tie front!

Cute sweater!! Good thing you waited the two years to finish it, it would've been way to big on her back then. :-)
