Back to reality

I'm back from Franklin, TN. While I really enjoyed spending time with my parents, it is good to be home. Their house is just not designed for two rambunctious boys.

My mother and I agreed that knitting camp was something of a bust. Our plan was to take a bunch of knitting or fiber-related classes at the LYS. Unfortunately, few of the classes were offered at times convenient to us, and private lessons were more than we wanted to spend. I then borrowed EZ's DVD Knitting Workshop from… Continue

Knitting Camp Continues

Knitting Camp with Mom continues. Well, sort of.

I drafted my last post on Tuesday evening. By that night, I had a heck of a migraine, completely derailing plans to knit with Mom that night. Wednesday morning, the migraine continued. In addition, my older two did not have camp that day because of thunderstorms. So, we had to postpone Knitting Camp until Thursday.

I have been able to get a fair amount of knitting done the last few days. I started knitting a Gecko for my… Continue

Knitting Camp days 1&2 (originally written 6/16)

The kids and I arrived in Franklin, TN on Sunday around lunch time. We immediately began to prepare for DS1 and DS2 to attend soccer/science camp the following day. After heading to Publix for lunch goods, it was time for dinner and bed.

Monday morning, I dropped off the boys at their camp (could you hear the screams of joy?) and returned home for our knitting camp. There was a bit of a delay with DS3 wanting to eat. My DH and I also realized over the weekend that DS3 had outgrown… Continue

Crazy Camp Week Begins

The elder members of the PeachyQueen gang seem to be enjoying camp. DS1 is at cub scout camp and is having a blast. Normally, I can't get a word out of him about his day. This entire week, he couldn't wait to tell me about camp. He even wanted to cook dinner with a recipe he learned in camp. I'm still not sure about this recipe. You crack and egg into a Ziploc bag, add milk and cheese, and mush up. Then you are supposed to put the mixture in to a pan of boiling water. I figured we were making… Continue

A Sad Day to Be a Tree

The word came down today - the Kwanzan cherry tree outside my office window must go.

It's actually a pretty tree, maybe 10 feet tall. We planted it when we first moved into the house 10 years ago. In the spring, it sports these beautiful cotton puff pink flowers. I have fond memories (and several great pictures) of the kids pulling the flowers off the tree and blowing the pedals into the wind.

This year, I noticed a large branch that died. Not a problem, I thought; we'll… Continue

I knitted a Baby Surprise Jacket

Yes, it's true. It's not finished, but it's knitted. I still need to sew in the ends, the top seam, and add buttons, but here is what it currently looks like:

It is knitted in Comfy Sport, a perfect choice for a baby who is going to live in Arizona. I brought the almost-finished piece to the Atlanta Knitting Guild tonight, and I received many oohs and ahs from the membership both on the yarn selection and my workmanship. It is… Continue

Is it really June?

I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks because, well, I haven't had time. I usually try to put a lot of thought into a blog. I compose an essay with a definite theme and some sort of conclusion. Now that the summer has begun, I need to get over my legal self and just write.

The past two weeks have been crazy busy. The week of May 16 was our children's last week of school. Sunday, my oldest child "graduated" the religious school first grade program in the morning, and in the afternoon… Continue
