Knitting |Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 5:31 PM
buttons and sweater

Not much done on the Sensational Shirttail sweater over the weekend, but here’s a picture of where I was on Friday and the buttons that I got at Button Emporium. The buttons were hand-made from horn. I really like the spiral design on them. They are shown against the back of the sweater. I’ve gotten a little further than this, but not much. (Click the pic for the bigger version.)

I was very busy over the weekend with graduation (YEA!) and helping #1 Son move on Sunday. He is moving into a house with a bunch of friends for the summer. It’s a typical college-age kid house: Miscellaneous furniture, steep winding stairs, 3 bikes parked in the living room, narrow street. I’ve lived in such houses myself in my checkered past. #1 Son is sub-leasing 1/2 the attic. It’s a nice space with a door and a skylight. I wouldn’t want to go up and down those stairs every day, but he’s young and devil-may-care. I wish him well.

I promised not to call him all the time trying to find out what he’s up to and he promised to “keep in touch.” He called me three times Sunday night. 😀

The house seems very quiet. The fur kids are wandering aimlessly around, and Moo Cow misses her buddy a lot.

    • A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
