That was so hard

Are you looking for your childhood demons? They might be at my dead brother's house in Idaho.


Mine were.


I fought with my mother constantly. I spent a whole day sobbing because of horrible memories.


The upside was that I got to know my sister-in-law better. She's so funny and strong. She might be the strongest person I ever met.


I also finished 4 pairs of socks.


I made a pair for the baby, but I don't have pictures yet. I managed to get Karla, the Cute-Hater, to admit that hand knit baby socks are cute.


I made a pair of socks for David that look exactly like duck feet. (He picked out the yarn. I dyed it with Easter egg dye and he loved it. His wide feet don't help the duck situation.)


I made a pair of soft golf socks for my grandmother.


I knit some footies out of Fixation for Isabel.


The baby is beautiful. He's sweet tempered and has freakishly long fingers and toes. I love him.
