The End of the Georgia Saga

Marsel finished her first pair of socks!  This is dk cotton/acrylic blend on 2.75 needles. 
She enjoyed knitting the socks so much, she cast on a new pair!
The basement wiring and sheet rock are finished! 
We put everything back in order.  It was quite a project! 
Marsel even managed to finish the maiden quilt and we took it off the frame!  It turned out so pretty. 
By evening, we had the ping pong table set up and play was in action! 
Quite a few years ago now,  I taught Abigail to knit.  We cast on her favorite-at-the-time colored yarn and she knit away and away....
So this visit, we cast off and sewed the ends together to make a cowl.  Done!  She was thrilled.
And we cast on again to make a headband...she is so much quicker now, she amazed herself even!
Yes, a good movie and knitting together is just what we like to do together!
Bill got to move outside once his basement project was over! 
Doing the bushes in the front of their house is a rite of the Spring visit!  
The morning of departure arrived, we left and it just goes to show that no matter how long the visit it just isn't ever long enough....... This is where we stopped to eat our bag lunch.  We used to stop to eat here but the conditions are so dirty we won't set foot inside but it is still fun to eat by the cow!
When we got home, the first greeter was waiting for us.... 
It is nice to be in my home that I love. 
The desert rose is in full bloom...she is a beauty. 
Wow, huh?! 
My on the way home knitting....progress is evident!

  1. Welcome home! It looks like you had a very productive visit. Those first socks are amazing. You should see what my first pair looked like. She's hooked now...it's a very slippery slope, isn't it?

  4. "Thank you" is insufficient for everything you did for and with us!!! Thank you nevertheless.

    The desert rose is stunning -- so glad it waited for you!

    The afghan is looking great! I am going to work on my sock now. :)

  5. great to spread the "infection" of knitting:) looks like you had two takers... and I love the topiary - your DH isn't one to sit still for long, is he?:) and I always feel glad when I am home again after travelling, too - there's nothing like your own four walls to come home to, even if you'll miss the rest of the family. enjoy - cats and blooms:)

  6. Wow your desert rose is amazing. WE have one here in Chicago. It is less than a foot tall. It has the very same blossoms as your tree! Each fall I bring it in to winter over in a dark room. Then I drag her out in the summer air and she comes alive. Im excited to see your TREE ....I think I have a bonsai thing going here!
