I want to knit here. I want to sit and look out at the view with soft yarn sifting through my fingers.

This is the view from the living room in the house that my parents are building. Isn't it beautiful? When the house is done there will be a large fireplace in the living room and lots of lush chairs to sink into. I think it may just be the perfect knitting place.

I've had several moments recently, when I look on what is around me and think that it's perfect. When my son comes up to me and says that he wants to cuddle with Mom. When I walk in to find my husband reading to our son or wrestling or making train noises together. Seeing the silhouette of my husband at the front door as he's coming home from work. Laughing on the phone with my sister or Mom. It's those moments that keep me going.

Mom sent me this picture today and as soon as I saw it I grinned! Jared and Dad out fishing in one of those perfect moments.

I've even had some perfect moments in my knitting! Last night I worked on Bryan's alpaca hat and it was a tactile treat. It's Elsebeth Lavold's Chunky AL and let me just say "YUM". Every time I pick it up I sigh in happy delight. Ever have a project like that? The temperatures have dipped down into the 40s in the morning and at night so Bryan is subtley letting me know that he's ready for me to finish it, but I'm just not ready to be done yet. Maybe he'll let me fondle it occasionally once it's done.

It's good to hear you are having some great days after all that craziness with your little guy's ear infections! I love the view from your parents new house - which lake does it overlook?

Surprisingly, that's not a lake. It's mist filling a valley!

Wow, how beautiful! It sounds like it will be the perfect knitting spot.

AcK! I can't go to the Knit In on Friday anymore. But I still want to meet up on Saturday if you're free.
