I know that it has been a very long time since I've posted. We have had a very busy fall. Harvest, family things, and general living. Despite some things being pretty tough, God is good! My friend, who's little girl died in February, found out that she was pregnant shortly after that. Well, just over a month ago, she gave birth to a healthy little boy! I finally finished his Dale of Norway sweater (they are very Norwegian-so it was a no-brainer!) I actually did the entire pattern according to the pattern and steeked it the other day. It went much easier than I expected and am looking forward to doing more this way-so much less finishing to contend with!!
