Week Sixteen – Blessings Abound

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.

  1. 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!
