Still here....

Did you know that the busiest real estate season is from the beginning of March until the end of June? It's true. Most people think it's Summer, but it's really Spring. So I'm crazy busy and not much knitting is getting accomplished. I am helping my sister with socks though. So that's something at least. The other night we sat together and I showed her how to work in the round with 4 needles. When I left she was working on the ribbing. Last night, she turned the heel and got to the short rows and I had to walk her through that... on the phone. Try explaining that on the phone! There was no way I was going to proceed to tell her how to pick up the stitches after that. I think we'll have to get together tonight. In person. One thing is for sure. Once you complete that process for the first time, there's no turning back. Sock knitting is by far the most addictive.

We are now getting into the season where you can't figure out what to wear. I stood in front of my closet for 20 minutes this morning deciding. Wool seems too wintry. Summer clothes don't cut it. And the in-between stuff is not real plentiful in my closet. I'm a wool person. My winter clothes are WARM. I think I need to shop. Maybe I'll go to New York City to shop tomorrow. Yeah. I think I will. Ok.. it's not really such a spur of the moment decision. I'm off to New York with my daughters tomorrow to just have fun for the weekend. And I'll definitely be going here:
