Scarce

It's been a hard couple of weeks. My extended family has suffered two losses in the past week, one expected and one very unexpected. I'm a little embarassed to be posting about it, it looks like a play for sympathy. But comments and emails have not been acknowledged, I have 300 feeds on my bloglines, and I just generally haven't been keeping up. I didn't want to appear to have disappeared or for anyone to feel slighted. So.

Knitting a little ... the Calla Lily socks are getting close and I am starting some socks for my sister with the Umbrella Drink yarn. She saw the yarn and loved it. It does look like her! I asked her if she wanted lacy or cable-y and she wisely picked lacy. (I think that yarn just says lace.) So I'm making Minty's Anastasia socks.

More when things settle down...
