Hello world. I have 12 hits on this blog, which I believe to be all mine. Surely they are because I haven't told anyone about its existence yet. I'm okay with that. I don't feel like I have anything to show people yet.
It's late on Friday evening and I have a whole weekend ahead of me. Most of one anyway - church carves a good bit of time out of the day on Sunday. Regardless, it's a weekend in which I have nothing significant planned and my three oldest children are at their dad's house for the next week. There is a basketball tournament tomorrow but it's 1 1/2 hrs away in Glen Rose and I really don't trust my car to make the trip. I'll hopefully be getting a "new" vehicle some time in the next month when my tax return money comes. Then I can be a traveler again and go visit nice yarn stores in towns that have nice yarn stores. ha Mine does not. My town has Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's. And they all have virtually the same thing. Not one skein of 100% wool yarn to be found in this town.
I haven't done any further knitting since last night because, by some miracle, I went to work today. Only the 2nd day I worked all week. Benny went to school and things might actually be back on the track to "normal", whatever that is. Seems like January is the month when you think "the holidays are over - now we'll get back to normal." HA HA HA As if. This is the month of snow days and sick days.
I have been looking at a lot of patterns and making a wish list of yarn to go with them. Of course I can buy patterns at Hobby Lobby that call for yarns they wouldn't carry in a million years. So I have to shop for the yarn online or patiently wait until I can go visit yarn shops in Austin or Dallas. And of course I have no references so who knows if there's really any good shops there.
I think I should check the internet to see if there might be a knitting guild in Waco. That might be just the place to start! I'll report on my findings tomorrow. :)
In the mean time, here's another photo of my littlest darling, Emeline:
