sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Well, now!

{insert picture of me trying not to split my face grinning} Apparently there is no return ticket coming for DD#1. I am once again full-time mom to a teenager. A teenager who has elected *not* to attend conventional school, *and* wants a learner’s permit. A teenager with more emotional baggage than most thrice divorced 50 year olds. A teenager who will want to share my yarn stash.

Hey! At least her clothes fit this time. Mostly.

Today, we need to clean the house (as always). I think we have some teens coming for a New Year’s Eve party. But it needs cleaning just for us, anyway. I should do that before I start knitting, otherwise, it won’t get done. I know myself that well at least.

I re-loaded my yarn basket last night, one ball for each item on the active stitches list, except midwife hats. I’ll figure out what to use for that later. If nothing else, I have that cone of cotton. Before I dig into that, though, I’ll use up a couple of partials to go with the hat brims I already have made.

I’ll need to update the stash page later today. I usually do that on Thursdays, but decided to wait until today, it being the end of the year and all that. I haven’t decided whether to do it weekly now, or go to monthly. We’ll see. I know there wont be near as much to report after the baby comes.

So there ya go, a nice rambling post to make up for not hearing from me yesterday.
