I'm knitting a shawl with lots of old Charisma yarn. It's a chunky yarn that I used to crochet smittens with. I love how all the colors are coming together!
I took Julia to WalMart earlier this week for the once-in-a-lifetime, set-her-up-for-college shopping trip. Actually, we were quite moderate in our purchasing; she's not a high-maintenance shopaholic type of daughter, I'm glad to say. She has less than a month left at home. She will visit us, but somehow I don't think she's the type to come back to live with us. She's quite independent.
Anna is now on her long school break. The Japanese school year starts about April 1, and they have a long break (kind of like our Christmas break) from mid-July till September 1. During this time she works for the Board of Education office. But in a few days she has a friend coming to visit her from the States, and she will spend a good bit of time with him.
Enjoy your yarn, ladies, if you're knitting these days!
