A funny kind of day....

today marks the 5th anniversary of my mother's death - in fact, it's almost to the exact minute. I wonder where these five years have gone - it doesn't feel like that long. It makes me realize how sometimes I really am just putting one foot in front of the other and carrying on. I still think of her every day, I miss her like crazy and wish she was here to meet her 2 great grandchildren. Somehow though, when my grandmother passed away this summer, I was happy that her and my mom were together - not happy that I was on my own but happy for them.

I've been knitting - nothing that is a WIP - I mean, really, why would I do that? I'm feeling an attachment to socks these days - I finished there out of Misti Alpaca sock yarn and can't wait to cast on with a new one.
It's Fleece Artist 2/6 in an undetermined color (I've never seen anything like it before) and I'm dying to cast on. I was expecting new yarn today from Artyarns and Handmaiden but they didn't arrive so I will have lots of time to finish Misti Alpaca socks.
The contest will end February 3, 2009 and the winner will be announced on February 4th. The yarn arrives on the third so I thought that would be appropriate. Soon there will be lots of new stuff in here.....I love new stuff!

My thoughts are with you and Lisa today. It is never easy loosing a loved one and you never get over it. Know that your mum is watching over you.
Will pop in either on Friday or Saturday to see all the new yarn.
