Good morning. I’ve been really taking it easy for the last week. My mother went out of town to visit her sisters. So Tom and I had the house to ourselves. We painted the living room and dining room, which turned out to be a huge project. But everything is done and my mom is home. I have been working on these socks and I just love them.
It’s a really fun pattern for me and it’s free on Ravelry.
Tom and I also took a quick trip to Springfield just to get away for a night. We had a really good time. Here he is with young Abe at the Lincoln museum.
And of course we had to get a family photo.
We had never been down there since it opened and I’ve got to tell you. It was really interesting. I found a lot of things that I didn’t know about him.
Also, I am so bad. When my father-in-law died I was very busy and I got 3 wonderful swap packages from people. In my haste I forgot to post the swap package! It was from Angela and she spun some yarn for me that is to die for. This is all the stuff she had in the package. As you can see it’s awesome.
Here’s a close up of that scarf. It’s so intricate and beautiful.
I wish I had the time to spin! I can’t wait to find the perfect pattern for it. Thanks Angela.
