coming up for air

Wow! When you use flickr to import photos they are huge, even when set on small!
Okay - so I'm finally starting to come up for air. There has been knitting - the lovely wisteria inspired Mini Mochi accompanied me to Canada last weekend to say good byes to JB's mom. She's still with us, but nobody knows for how long.
The mini mochi is well on it's way to becoming waterfall socks (ravelry link). I did the math this morning for doing a toe up traditional heel flap and gusset. This is a great heel and I really like the way it fits and allows the most use of the yarn.
I'm thinking about doing a knitting themed tree for the upcoming holidays. But I'll share more about that later.
Thanks for the emails, comments and encouragement. I've missed you guys.


  1. Welcome back. Yummy yarn colors.

  2. Welcome back. Take a deep breath and relax...and knit!

  3. Very pretty colors. We missed you too you know...

  4. Welcome home; love to you and JB, and of course, sympathy.

  5. I've been missing you. But you were gone for a most important reason. I'm glad you got to go now instead of just later.

    Take care.

  7. Hey, G! I've been worried about you and thinking about you! Glad you are back. VERY sorry to hear about JB's mom. These are difficult things to go through...but you are not alone.
