15 Years

Today is the 15 year anniversary of my daddy's death. 

It makes me sad in so many ways.  He was not there to walk me down the isle, he'll never meet his grandson, he is not here, yet, he is. 

As my little pooh bears aunt, I fully intend on continuing the insane tradition of using Old Shep as a lullaby, just as my fathers mother did for him when he was a wee laddy.  Ya, I don't know why either, I guess it's just my way of instilling some sort of tradition from our dad.   

So, in honor of my daddy and my soon to be nephew, I give you Old Shep.
I love you daddy.

Potato chips for the soul.

I have so WIP it seems and yet, this week, with the stress of this week, all I want to do is knit hearts.  Small, mindless, instant gratification.  It keeps my mind off all the changes going on. 

I had so much more to say here, and yet, it's gone from my mind. 

I want to crawl back into bed, with a cup of tea, a good movie and my Noro, so I can knit it out. 

Oh! also, I am going to start running, any tips, bring em my way!!

What do we have here..

<---- It's the Squish!!

It's actually bigger than that, it's just that, well it's on circular needles and really, how does one flatten that? 

I am about halfway through repeat 2 of 3 before the border/edging thing.  I am debating tossing in another couple of repeats just for shits & giggles.  Also because it's all smooshy and therefore I can't judge the size of it. 

I have had knitting ADD as of late.  I am blaming the full moon, change of season, I don't know, work with me, will ya!!!  Other than this, I got nothing. 

What are you guys knitting/doing? 
Hope ya'll are doing well.

Grant Me Serenity

I am an introvert and astrologically, a cancer.  This makes for a very interesting breed of a pammy.  That being said, there are lots of things are afoot at Chez Si.  Staging, selling, moving and such = a freaked out and anxiety ridden girl.  If anyone has any advice or meds, I'll gladly take it. 

Also, with regards to selling, burying a St. Joseph in your yard to sell your home, say a friend has one, and isn't using it, because, they sold their house, can you use it or do you need fresh St. Joe mojo? 

As we all know, I have been knitting on my Big Squish blanket.  It's simple and mindless, no real counting and the like, it eases my troubled mind.  Problem is, the person I was knitting this for has decided for some reason to stop talking to me.  Part of me thinks they fell off their roof again and died.  Another part thinks they are just being them, antisocial and aloof.  So, my other question to you is this, when I am finally done with Squish, what do I do with it?  Should I just send it to it's intended reciepent and be done with it?  This person is oh so very knitworthy it's painfull, so I know it'll be appreciated, but I don't want to seem like a bunny boiler...what to do?  What to do?
