...will soon be wide open spaces. Over 120 acres of prime real estate. It's ironic that we're prepping the house for sale at the same time of the plant closure - our house was built in 1925 for the new middle class that was created by the good jobs at the plant.
End of an era for me, too...no more kids at home...moving solo into new, unknown living spaces, starting a new chapter.
Knitting still keeps me (kind of) sane. I've begun swatching the yarn from the frogged sweater in anticipation of making something better...(target: Harvest Moon, inspired by Aimee at Darn Knit Anyway in Stillwater...yarn: Cascade 220 purchased in 2007 or 2008 at The Yarnery in St Paul):
Current sock on the needles (pardon the awful photo) which I'm liking a lot - the color is called, "Vampire's Kiss" (paca-peds, purchased at Borealis in St. Paul).
And a lace project that I'm liking a lot. (Cold Mountain in Marine Blue Zephyr purchased at Loopy in Chicago). I got hung up early on because of a mistake, but since fixing it and taking control, it's moving along. It's going to take a long time, but it'll be worth it.
