Whenever someone from my past happens to pop back up, my reaction is usually to recoil and run away. I was a very different person than who I am now, especially in high school and the few years after. I did some things to people that I’m not proud of. So, when I found an old friend on Facebook, I wasn’t sure if I should send him a message or not. Well, I bit the bullet … and I’m glad I did.
Kevin and I were good friends for a long time (and sometimes, more than friends, but that’s another story.) We met at a church camp one summer and then ran into each other at State Band a lot. He’d come visit, we’d hang out, talking about music mainly. We lost touch for about, oh – I’d say five years. So I am glad to hear that he’s doing well. He’s married and has a beautiful baby daughter (and my first thought when I saw her photo … what can I knit that cutie? LOL) He’s got a great job and a house … all those things we wish for the good people in our lives to have.
So, it was nice to re-connect, and I don’t feel like I opened a can of worms – always good.
I’m going back to knitting tonight. I haven’t been in, wow, almost six months. They used to meet on Wednesdays, which was a really bad day for me. So, Fridays work out great and I’ll get a chance to work on the baby sweater for my cousin who’s expecting. It’s a beautiful green cotton – Blue Sky to be exact – and so soft! Hopefully I can get it done tonight and post some pictures on Monday after I sew on the buttons.
And lastly – thanks to Maryanne and Tina – who pointed out the new addition of Piecework to me! I picked up a copy yesterday!!! I’m going to try to get a pair of the Men’s Confederate socks done before out big re-enactment in May, so that all the guys in my group can see what they look like and decided if they want a pair. And using KnitPicks Palette (it has to be 100% wool), I can make them for next to nothing, which is also good. If I charge for them, I’ll cover my cost and some of my time, but donate the rest to the local battlefield here.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
