Stitch by Stitch

 I finished it!!! It is warm and soft and I am so glad to have it. It is not perfect. It shows my growth and how I improved in consistency and tension. This thing is big enough to cover our whole family when we watch a movie. it can fit a full bed.  I did not know what I signed up for starting this blanket. I am excellent at doing pearl stitches. I can't do anything else but if you need a pearl. I am your women.
 I started this when I was listening Anna Karenina. I listened to heart of darkness, binged watched Gilmore Girls and lots of other stuff.
While knitting this I read "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Jem talked about old ladies knitting blankets in July and not understanding why they were doing it. I do!

Summer flew by. School is in. Clara lucked out and got the fun teacher that everyone says, "Oh, He is the fun one!" John got a great teacher that is a perfect fit for him as well. This is going to be a great year!

 It is so fun to watch Eliza develop. It was exciting to watch her figure out how to hold on to the bar and lean down to pick up something. It was nice to see her learn how to use a cup. And darling to see her start to point.
