I finally was able to meet up with Arianne from To Think Is To Create last night. I think she found me while reading the Chicago Moms Blog and she lives close by. We finally had the chance to have a knitting night together at Starbucks!

Arianne, let me just say that I think you are a delight and I am so excited to have a knitting friend! Here's a photo of the first knittybloggy club.

Hubby encourages me to go out, too, as he noticed how much happier I am after I get out and recharge my batteries. Even if it's just for an hour or two, it does help, I admit! And I make a point to be thankful for every time I can escape- no matter how short or long. I don't come back home saying I wish I could have stayed out longer. I just say how nice it was to get out. I am sure it's a blessing to my hubby to have a happy wife!

Finished Abby's Sweater!

Ah- finally had an hour of uninterrupted peace & I finished the sweater. Hoping to give this as a gift for my niece Abigail when she is dedicated at church.

Casting on now... another sweater! This time for O Mama Mia's Starlet. And tomorrow I'll be stopping by the knitting shop for a larger cable needle so that I can start on this...
