have I been?
Doing a whole lot of stuff actually.
I went to the UK to visit my very sick Grandfather. The Welsh for Grandfather is Taid ( pronounced like Tide). He's an awesome guy who served in the merchant navy in the 2nd World War. Afterwards he was a monumental mason, making gravestones and other memorials. You might remember my Nan passed earlier this year, so when I heard he was ill, I dashed over there as soon as I could.
Turns out, after a nasty scare involving pancreatitus, diabetes and "old age" he's still as strong as an ox. Go Taid. It was great to see him and great to spend some time with some other members of my family.
In knitting news, I've almost finished my Kureyon blanket. Here are all the squares I have laid out. And to give them some sort of scale, here are my boys........
Four of these 'strips' of squares are now sewn together, but two remain. I thought I had 20 squares, but alas, not. I've bargained for the final ball of Kureyon and await it's arrival before I place the final 10 balls into the last two strips.
Bigger news involves our family moving up to North Carolina. Charlotte to be exact. My DH's younger, younger sister already lives there. We've visited a few times and LOVED it. Not to mention it's home to the Turtlegirl. My in-laws who currently live closeby will also be moving there. Exciting times. Let's hope someone buys our house soon. Or at least by Florida's "season's" end anyway.
More catchup soon, but for now, let's make-do.
