While on vacation, I received the news that my beloved Aunt Anita had passed away. I returned home to Vermont and then traveled to Maine for the funeral.
My Aunt Anita had a quick wit and really was a "together lady". She was 88 years old. There are many wonderful memories to comfort those of us who loved her very much.
The picture was taken December of 2006.
I was introduced to someone at the funeral home that I had not seen in 40 years. Neither one of us recognized the other but someone who knew the two of us brought us together for a few moments of reminiscing. I babysat this man's children for at least every Saturday for a couple of years. However, when told who I was he said, "Oh, yes.....you taught my wife how to knit!". I must have been about 15 years old at the time and did not remember this at all. I was an avid knitter back then so I must have. It pleased me very much that he remembered.
and for the joy..............!!!! while in my home town I was also able to see the newest addition in my family, Kaleigh Noella, only 10 days old.
On the knitting home front, I finished the caramel Primavera socks and have started another pair using a Cat Bordhi pattern that I am finding quite challenging. It involves a casting on method I've never tried before and other construction that makes me feel like I've never knitted socks before though I have completed at least 25 pairs.
I am way behind in blog reading and leaving comments. I hope to get caught up this week. I'm sure you all have been creating some very interesting things.
