Big day done.

I'm feeling sorry I haven't posted for some time, and I've left you all in winter! Well, two days after that last post, the temperature went up 50 degrees from -11 to 37. The snow got a serious talking to, and while there are still icy, crusty snowbanks, the majority has melted away. Even though it is brown and muddy, the grass is beautiful.

I have knitted two pair of beautiful mittens, and a lovely, cashmere cowl. You will have to go on blind faith that this is so, because we have guests, and the main computer is currently surrounded by others. That is where I download and upload pictures.

I'm having a little "quiet" time having had a big party for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday. It was nice. We had about 20 friends of theirs over, friends from when they used to live in Indiana. Many hadn't seen each other for years, and some for over 20 years. It turned out, Uncle Gene used to work with one of them about 35 years ago!

We had good grandparent time as well. Tomorrow Juston and Erin return to the Solomons. I'm sorry I won't be there to see you off! Many blessings on you, you flights and your house. I'll close this now and post pictures when I can.

My faith in your knitting is not only blind, but absolute. I'm sure those mitts are beautiful, and that cowl is soft!
