when I grow up...

I'd like to be able to knit like this... simply stunning...

all I need is practice and needle time. I see it in my head, just need to see it on the needles.

It is like gardening. I see amazing gardens in my head. I need to get those gardens out of my head, on paper and into the dirt.

We're here in Rapid City.. the Black Hills.. one of the places I always feel at home. Dean and I are taking care of my niece and nephew while my brother and his wife enjoy NYC. Its around 100 here.. but its a dry heat. It is amazing to me how dry it feels here compared to Central Iowa.

Well back to the kids. a 4 yr old and 1 1/2 yr old take a lot more attention than a 21yr old --WOW am I ready for bed at night! LOVE it! and them.
