Devil and Angel baby picture
I wanted to end this year on a happy note, and I can't think of anything happier than babies. The twins were just about 10 months old and had started walking, so that makes this picture from September of '73.
I'm so tired of this year, 2009, and will be happy to see it creep off the stage and go into infamy, with all it's ribbons dragging, and the whole of it's baggage. Today was a baking and candy making day, and it became a "wash the dog" day, too! My back is aching and here is when I'm really happy that DH does the kitchen and the cooking, Bless him!
The Manly/Beastly is going along so well that I've already picked out a new sweater to make for DH, and it goes with my Resolution to learn continental knitting. Fair Isle sweaters really benefit from a full knowledge of continental style, though the first time I knit this sweater in '76, it was with the plain old lever throw that is what I use all the time. What a drag that was to do! I found this Philosopher's Wool technique ages ago when doing something else, and fully intend to learn it in 2010, but starting with mittens for a DD!
Hats, sweaters and sock knitting can keep women off the streets. But who else will march? We can't leave all this stuff up to the kids, can we? Just kick me. I must let go! I must LET GO!!!
