We found out this week that our new grand-baby is going to be a boy. Currently, the parents plan to name him Luke Alan. Good thing I started my baby sock adventure with a blue pair. Here are the pairs I have made so far.
One other thing I made this week was a ring to hold my cable needle (toothpick). Since I have been doing a lot of cables on socks lately, I have been trying to figure out a way to have my cable needle handy, without setting it down on a table or sticking it into the yarn ball or sock. Here is what I have settled on thus far:
Finally, Easter is always the most difficult time of year for me since mom passed away (4/9/08). It is a time for renewal and reflection, but for me it always comes with mixed thoughts of new life and life that has passed. I hope everyone had a blessed Easter. Give someone you love a hug today, it may be the last one you give them.

I’m so sorry about your mom. I didn’t know that she had passed. I can’t imagine what that feels like. Easter and this season is a really challenging time of year for me too friend. Please know that I’m thinking of you. Sending a prayer up for you right now!
Can’t wait to see all of the cute things you will be crafting for Baby Luke!
Thanks, Courtney. I just prefer the Halloween to Easter season. More fun, less serious and emotional. 🙂
