So close to finishing!

February 26, 2006


Okay, I am not finished with my Clapotis, but I am veeeeeeery close! I do not want to whine and say I did not have enough time, and instead will use those setbacks as a lesson in knitting my projects up as fast as possible just in case. If you did not figure it out […]

My Lovely Girl Has Gone to Play

February 21, 2006


Tonight just minutes before 9PM-EST, I cried good-bye grudgingly to Hayley. Even though she seemed to be on her way to recovery, she took a turn for the worse this evening and passed away in my arms. I repeatedly begged her not to leave me, but her body was too tired to continue. When Rich […]
