Back in the Saddle Again

The blog site has suffered my attention. With my Dad getting cancer and all my travels up to Canada to be with him and mom, I have let other things go. My father passed away on July 24th and I miss him terribly. My father has been very pleased with my efforts to help others learn to knit; for he has spent his life serving and teaching others. One of the reasons that I love knitting so much is because of his mother, Florence, that I never knew in this life. She passed away when my father was a teenager. Her family came to Canada from Denmark and Dad would tell me stories of her talents. I have always felt close to Grandma Florence and I like to think that she is always watching over me. I feel a passion to carry on some traditions of my Grandmother, and therefore I knit and play the piano. Thanks to my Dad who taught me to serve others and is now back with his family that has passed on - I must carry on and get back to work. Thank you all for your love and support.

I am thrilled that our knitting guild is growing. We are a wonderful bunch of friends that love to spend our time knitting for those we love. I am so pleased at everyones progress in our group. The items being knit are truly amazing. Keep up the good work.

We are now having our meetings the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints building in Kalispell.

For December we are having a party at my home, the tuesday before Christmas. We will all bring something delicious to eat and a wrapped "knitting gadget" for a gift exchange. And don't forget to bring your knitting projects! See you all at 7pm. Call me if you need directions etc.

The Tuesday before Christmas?! Well, that doesn't leave me a lot of time to learn to knit, does it? I'm glad to see you're back to the blog. We love you and your knitting!
