And a year later . . . I bought a house June, 2011; my daughter moved back to Texas and into my house the same month as living in Joplin was extremely difficult. This year I also sold my old house, and I bought my first car all by myself.
I made it through an extremely difficult school year - new state test with little information as to how the test had changed, a new, administrator chosen curriculum, challenging students.
I'm ready for a calm summer with lots of knitting time. I need to do some painting, refinish some furniture, and finish unpacking boxes, but I also plan to sit and knit as much as possible.
I also finished my second KAL - the Color Affection shawl in the picture above. I used MadelineTosh Tosh Merino Light in Silver Fox, Manor, and Tart. This was my first project with MadelineTosh yarn, but it won't be the last - I love this yarn! The colors are amazing!
And, the purple streak in my hair? I was celebrating the end of the school year - sort of. "When I am old, I shall wear purple . . ." - I felt old at the end of this year!
