Klaralund and Thanks

Hi everybody! Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes! They meant a lot to me!!

I'm still here for the time being. My computer is hanging in there, but still threatens to break on me daily. I just have to remember not to breath as I am typing. I had a wonderful time visiting with my friends and family in Virginia. Rob was able to make it out for my birthday party making me one happy girl. I stayed at my sister's house, and spent some much needed quality time with my niece and nephew. I had fun helping her decorate that awesome birthday cake you saw in the slideshow. I got to dye the fondant to match the flowers and do the black diamonds and pink circles. I can't tell you how much fun I had staying up all night working with her on that cake. It was a 2 day job, people! That cake was no joke. I snuck out just in time to avoid the mound of dishes. Muhahaha! That is so big sister like of me isn't it.

Rob's mom decided to go on a little (haha little) road trip with Rob and I back to good ole Tennessee. We had a blast. We stopped off to visit with his little sister, Amanda, and checked out her AMAZING house. Her house is 200 years old, and it used to be an old post office/store. I am J-E-A-L-O-U-S!! Talk about a home with character, not to mention history.

We made it home safe and sound (not without sniffles on my part), and Rob's mom stayed with us for 2 nights. It was great spending time with her, and I loved having the company. It would have been very hard to come home to an empty house after leaving my friends and family.

As promised, here is a picture of Klaralund in her non-stripey glory wavin' at ya! I am very happy with the results. I wanted a simple sweater to show off the yarn, and that is what I got. I knit the smallest size in width and the largest size in length. Did that make any kind of sense?? I like my sweaters to go past the waist of my pants even when the are the low rise variety.

I'm gonna sign off for now. I think I've set a record holding my breath, and it is time to come up for air. I hope to be back again soon! I still have things to share with you :)
