Busy Body

December 1, 2008

 

 

I have been quite the busy body, more so than usual.  In addition to the care and keeping of home and family, I have been knitting, spinning, dyeing, updating my virtual world and podcasting … mostly spinning, but still.  

Of course, America celebrated our Thanksgiving, which, while we are in Italy, we still celebrated.  We each found it quite comforting as we are all eager to leave Italy and are equally homesick.  We lost our ADSL connection and telephone for FOUR DAYS!  On Day One, it seemed like our lives could not exists without the internet but by Day Four we seemed to ‘reconnect’ without being ‘connected’.  Life’s mysteries. 

Here are DD’s finished mitts:

Bobbin 6 is being used to knit a pair of booties for DS3, it is so rewarding to knit with yarn you have spun yourself!
