It’s official. I have lived for one quarter century. There were many festivities this weekend, including the beginnings of the wedding shawl with the beautiful, beautiful alpaca that my mom bought me for my birthday. I have 383 days in which to finish it. There’s just barely more than a year until the wedding, when I get to marry the most best man in the whole wide world! There’s also just less than a month until a dear friend of mine has her baby, and a sweater that isn’t going to knit herself. I guess there won’t be much knitting on the shawl in the next month!
