Secret Knitting

.... no more. Sheri has posted a spoiler picture on the Loopy Ewe Ravelry site so I think it is safe to share one of the stealth knitting projects I have been working on. I designed the sock portion of the July Socks and More Club for The Loopy Ewe. DD's feet (she is my foot model) are about an inch shorter than mine so the fit is not perfect on her, but they fit me perfect. The yarn is Alchemy Juniper and was lovely to work with. So very soft. More stealth knitting in the works, but it will be a while before I can share that with you.

We have been busy getting things together for the college girl. I really don't know where the last 18 years have gone. It is so hard to believe that in a month we will be packing her off to college. And goodness, it is like setting someone up in a new house. So much to buy. We have been busy shopping for towels and sheets etc, and lamps and clocks and the list goes on. She is enjoying it, and I am happy for her, but I have a knot in my stomach the size of a boulder. I know she will do well, she is a wonderful young lady, level headed, responsible, intelligent... it is me I am worried about. Crazy huh?? I keep thinking she is leaving and in 2 years her brother will be on his way, and then the youngest 4 years after that. It boggles the mind how quickly time seems to go once you have children. The hubby and I will definitely have to get some new hobbies so we aren't sitting here staring at each other 24/7. Not that the kids are hobbies, but they do consume a large portion of the day.

Well I guess I ought to do a little housework before I get my haircut. More later. Stay in the AC if you can, it is so nasty hot and humid out.

It is amazing how fast the time goes by--wish I could say that you aren't going to miss her like crazy but that would be a lie--your socks are beautiful--that yarn is beautiful too.

I know how you feel. I felt the same when my daughter left. And I wont lie either - it takes a long time to get use to not having them at home.

Lovely socks as always.

Your socks are just lovely as always!

Good luck to your son is settling in nicely. No tears shed when we left him there (I know I'm a terrible mother) as I am looking forward to a little less stressful year with only one son left at home. It is scary though the time does go by way too fast!

happy knitting :)
