It's official...Liz is the proud owner of a beautiful home. She is so very excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. Huguette and I had a chance to take a load of boxes up to her new place on Saturday, and we love the place. It's perfect for Liz and her family. I took these pics while there of Liz, her daughter and her mother.
Such a happy family. Poor Liz is now pretty emotional today because it is her daughter's last day at school, the movers come tomorrow and there's still a lot to do. However, Liz is looking forward to hosting a knit night as soon as things settle down. Don't tell Liz, but we left her a little something in her house. Shhhh - let's see how long it takes her to find it!
As for my knitting, I decided that I should make something for my grandfather as it is his birthday on Thanksgiving day and we will be visiting them for the holiday. I've started a pair of socks for him, and this time I've gotten further than ever before on a sock. I've actually turned the heel and picked up stitches along the sides. I know, for most this is not a big deal, but for me it was reason enough to have a quiet celebration with popcorn last night. I read in a few places about turning a heel, and couldn't quiet understand. Thankfully I saved on my DVR an episode of Knitty Gritty that shows how to knit socks. It saved me and my sock. Wish me luck in getting both socks done before Thanksgiving!
