I know you weren't holding your breath but...here it is! My first knitted creation. I can't believe I finished him. I made this cute little elephant for my nephew Jack. Of course, I was stitching on the eyes and ears at 11 pm the night before I gave it to him. Lumpy, as I named him, had a cute braided tail but you can't see it in the photo. I am really enjoying learning to knit and I want to do an afghan next.
Obviously, my commitment to writing once a week went out the window since it is summer. That's not an excuse, just the reason. As with seeing the elephant, I know you aren't holding your breath, waiting for me to post but I will keep writing because I LOVE to write and I NEED to write. I am sitting at this computer right now because I couldn't sleep. I was posting in my head like I do ALL THE TIME. I finally gave in and here I am. Nothing much to say. I am too tired to string together many words but as always the getting back to it is the hardest part, jumping in. I must say I am glad I did. The water feels great. I'll be back for another dip soon.
