Brainstorming

Shawl idea forming. Maybe a new design? Maybe a disaster? Time will tell.

From the Armchair Knitting in Passing
  • My cousin Gayle gave me an antique darning egg that was her great grandmother’s.
    • It appears to be a vintage white milk glass hand blown darning egg- similar to this one listed on eBay
  • Mom got us matching pink socks with sheep on them for upcoming Wool Festivals!
KAL News Events On a Happy Note
  • Scituate Salt Cave
    • I enjoyed the quiet time & guided meditation. I’m not sure I believe in the benefits of the salt and am especially skeptical that the website sites Dr. Oz as their source.
  • Morgen’s First Communion and A’s birthday dinner.
  • I saw a local production of Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with my cousins, my grandmother & my great aunt Florence as part of her 94th birthday celebration. She’s always wanted red leather pants. Her daughter Joanie bought them for her and she rocked them!
  • Savers trip with Mom! Always fun (and funny)
  • My cousin Bella’s performance as Fiona in Shrek the Musical
  • Our friend Liz’s surprise 30th Birthday- Star Wars Themed Party. The decorations were on point!
  • We have a new nephew- Zachary!
  • Mother’s Day at Mom’s.
  • My mom, Diane Lassonde, was on Episode 190 of the eBay for Business Podcast. Check it out!
Quote of the Week

Life will hit you hard in the face, wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.– Sarah Kay
