I don’t intend to talk about nothing but the cardigan but it’s the only photographable item at the moment so it’s what’s for blogging. The color is closer than yesterday but still not right. It’s one of those colors. See the lovely row of increases. It’s my favorite part of this pattern. I love the way the increases shape the raglan yoke. Yes, I’m that easily entertained.
I was looking back at last year trying to find some mention of the Thanksgiving meal with the in-laws. We had our gathering yesterday. The feeling of dread I had for the whole thing was lessened once I was there but when my FIL started talking about those who aren’t with us anymore and couldn’t continue I started to revisit my thought that maybe it’s time to find a new place to go. The “ghosts” there are just way to vivid. That is the last place we spent time with my BIL before he began his very quick slide. The Husband and I had a quick conversation when the email arrived from his mother a month or so ago about how difficult it was going to be. We revisited the conversation on the way home and I think he is going to suggest a different location for next year. We can’t be the only ones who think it’s time for a new tradition.
