Elder DD turned 40 yesterday! My baby! My sister wants to know how I, who she says am only 30, could have a 40 year old daughter. I told her I had DD pre-utero.
Wasn't she just born? Didn't she just begin to crawl and walk? I don't know where the time went, but I can tell you that she's a wonderful woman and daughter!
The weird thing for me is that it's easy to realize that I've been a Grammie for a few years, but having a 40 year old daugher boggles my mind.
We did a lot of eating and laughing this weekend. Poor Birthday girl had a rotten cold, and took some med that upset her tummy. So her supper at the Persian restaurant we took her to consisted of a glass of Coke. She slept off the crummy stomach, and she'll get a rain check on the restaurant.
Knitting news: I'm playing around with this wonderful new yarn that I bought. One ply is superwash, and 2 plies are not. That means that the SW ply will just grab the dye, while the reg plies won't. I'll have pics of what I'm knitting with it in a day or two. I've been doing a lot of swatching and frogging and so far, here's what I can tell you. The skein dyed with deep teal, with a lot of contrast between the SW ply and the others, works up to a ragg look. Very sporty, and great for guy socks as well as girl socks. The skein with lighter colors, and therefore less variation between the plies, works up to a heathery look. Amazing what one yarn can produce. It's a lovely yarn, soft, 100% merino, and I think I'm going to like it a lot.
