I was only going to post a bit today about a sweater I am knitting for a new cousins baby and a few other odds and bits....but then I got an email from a friend about another friends grandson and it was so wonderful, I figured I post the link to the youtube video here today (also, cause I can't figure out how to actually post a YouTube video here)
This is a close wonderful family, all generations living and working together - amazing. I sing in a chorus with the grandmother and have never heard one complaint or "why us" from this family. Awesome!~
Seeing Justin's courage and attitude makes me appreciate the fact that I take a walk everyday thru scenery like this
This area is a conservation water project - no swimming in the lake but kayaking and some fishing allowed. In the winter - if it's a cold one - it's covered with ice fishing shacks, and ski tracks. We snowshoe here alot in the winter, it's magnificent.
LOTS of dogs here and recently they instituted a leash law and receptacles to pick up after your dog. To be honest - it was needed and has cut down on the scare of having a strange dog charge you, or having to dodge piles of poo. I used to love taking Samson there - his absolute joy in running and swimming was wonderful to see. I'd spend hours with him here.
I did see evidence of Irene's wrath here in the woods - glad this wasn't near a house as it was a massive tree.
And here is the sweater that I made for my cousins new and first grandbaby. Its a pattern that Lori sent me and came out pretty good - not perfect and I might even try it again with a different wool - just to get it right! And I made it a little bit longer cause basically I knit it too loose and it was coming out too big so I made it for a slightly larger baby. Live and learn and Lori - I'll email you for some hints about those pesky Cast-on's under the arm!!!
I have the day off - and am reveling in it! I might just start that new baby sweater!!!
