past lives



Christmas is coming up, and the grandmother has another stocking to make this year. Also, in the interests of continuing closet cleanup, I thought I'd go through the knitting needles and yarn while I was looking for red and green. I no longer knit (only crochet) and nor does my mother or my daughter, so I packed up the needles and sent them off to Alaska, to a yarnmaker extraoirdinare (see her blog Woolen Travels) for her knitting class. Trying to find a home for all of these odds and ends of personal history. Well, hell, I do have a birthday tomorrow.
   Also wanted to share a link for a slideshow about Elaine's life that a colleague, Chris McKenna, made for the memorial. You can find it here on You Tube.
