all my ducks in a row

spent the weekend knitting hats for ryan's dulaan project. it is quite amazing how far 5 skeins of cascade 220 will stretch. this yarn was first purchased for a knitted tam class with beth brown-reinsel at madrona in 2005. then the 3 blues were used to knit squares for christine's blue afghan, now 5 hats for dulaan. what a value!

ms$w was last weekend, and i wasn't there. but was i the tiniest bit upset? no. things really do have a way of working out for the best. if i had planned on going to ms$w, i would have missed out on seeing my son and ddil. they decided last minute to come to south florida to visit my mom for the weekend, so i got to see them saturday night and sunday lunch.

if you are the praying kind, please keep my son bart in your prayers. he is a navy pilot and is being deployed overseas at the end of may for 6 months.

keep safe my baby :-)

I will definitely keep your son in my prayers. My uncle Bart was in the Reserves for 20 years and he just retired. Everytime you write about your son, I get so misty-eyed because I think of my 2 year old becoming a Man, Husband, Father. Thanks for sharing.

Sending big hugs to help keep you together. Big cheers for him, but I sure hope this is over soon so they can stay home with their families.

You're right - you were exactly where you should have been last weekend!

Prayers for your family indeed my dear, it's strange how you end up being just where you need to be.

I'm definitely the praying sort and I will be remembering both of you.
I mentioned Madrona and I think I will get a green light:-)

One of my brothers is a pilot, too, and when he was in the 1st Desert Storm, I had a knot in my stomach the entire time.

I will certainly pray for Bart, and make him a little knot, too.

Oh my gosh, Vanessa! I will be thinking of him, you and your ddil. I don't know what to say. Please thank him from us for serving.
