Quickly I Write

I meant to write yesterday, after settling in, but before I knew it the sun had set and plans were being made to go into to town for the Friday Night Jamboree.  My camera battery also died before reaching the Jam, so I can’t even offer you photos of the amazing country night.

The drive here was long and tedious, and I worked diligently on the sweater for Ellette, trying my best to keep it hidden from her.  She leaned over the seat at one point and asked, rather innocently, “Mommy, is that my present?” and I just said simply, “No, it is for someone else.”  I don’t think she believed me.

Still, in the 13 hours of the drive, I only managed to finish the hem and one sleeve.  Between last night and this morning, I was able to finish the other sleeve, do the finishing up, and add the ribbon and button.  I have to wrap everything quickly too.

I am writing quickly right now because, after spending a quiet morning in a rocking chair by a fire, I get news that in the next 30 minutes the house is going to be filled with an additional 7 to 10 people who will be staying the evening.  I decided now was a good time to tell you that we have arrived safely in Virginia, I have (finally!) completed the black hole sweater for Ellette, and I cannot wait for tomorrow.

I will write again on Monday, with photos of the sweater and mittens I was able to make as well.  For now, I have cleaning to help with and a shower to take.

Merry Christmas!
