Why this journey?

I've been retired now for over a year. Husband has been sick but is now doing quite well with new pacemaker. I continue to knit and knit and crochet. Recently I became friends again with my sewing machine so you will see some of those projects, too. Thanks for reading.

I now understand what a blogger means when they thank their followers. It is wonderful to know that even a few folks find these observations and pictures either amusing or interesting.

My friend and former neighbor, Jean, sends me emails now and then after reading a post. The one she sent yesterday is special and poignant and so I am putting part of it here.

Hi Becky

I love to knit, although I haven't done any in probably 30 years.  Still have a cedar chest full of yarn, and recently pulled from the cedar chest a cable sweater I made for Red about 1975.  He didn't like it because it had dropped shoulders, the newest thing at the time.  The pattern was a v-neck pullover, but he wanted it made cardigan with buttons.  So I changed it. And now I am wearing it.

Some of you probably don't want to have YAEMA (yet another email account) so you can leave comments. FYI you don't need another email, like gmail. I just use my regular Comcast.net email with Google and that works. Hoping this info might encourage you to leave comments.

I'll be knitting today. What does your day look like?
