Good excuses...

I think this is a good excuse for not getting much knitting done:
It was Carson's first birthday party, and a good time was had by all.

We had some rough times, too, as just as my parents were catching their breath from my dad's mom dying last week, we got a call that one of my mother's closest friends for 40 years had been struck by a car and killed.

So much of this weekend was spent with family, and knitting didn't always seem appropriate.

It is therapeutic, though, so I did some:

My sister likes the sock colors, but Carson won't be able to wear them for a couple of years... they are huge.

I'm very sorry to hear about your family friend. That is awful :(.

The picture of Carson is super cute. I can't believe how carefully she seems to be opening her present for one year old!!

Carson is, as always, totally adorable. You can tell she's very serious about that present!

Your family has been through the ringer lately. I'm so sorry -- it really isn't fair but knowing that doesn't make it easier, huh? We're thinking of you and sending you good thoughts. Plus, I'll keep bringing lunch sometimes so, hey, free food! (Like you, I am not just a comfort eater, I am a comfort feeder.)
