Yesterday a friend, Kristie, and I went to Carol's for lunch. I knew that the first official Tuesday without Mom would be difficult. It was lovely. We had soup and French fries and shared a piece of coconut cake--oh my, that was heavenly! We toasted Mom and it was fitting. I think Mom would approve. Over the years on our local outings, we would run into many friends they loved meeting Mom. We always had fun! On Friday I planned a memorial for her at the assisted living facility.
On the fiber front...we had a meeting at the shop to plan for future classes. Some will remain the same, but I am excited about the advanced knitting. When I finish writing the class description I will post the information. Projects are lined up in my queue for the Ravellenics. My project list is ambitious, but one must push their limit during the Olympics. The only event to fill is the Handspun Heptathlon. I finished Stroke of Genius (Kwoosh) last night. It is a nice size and the colors of the yarn are very pretty.
