Andrew is coming for a visit today. He got his wings today. He's got some time before he reports in North Carolina, so he's visiting me for the weekend and then heading home for a spell.
I was supposed to go to western Illinois for work, but it was cancelled due to bad weather. Snow Day! So, I'll get to pick Andrew up from the airport. I don't know what Andrew is going to do while I'm at work (back to western Illinois) all day. This is Chicago, there's plenty to do, but it is hard to think of Goober (he hates that) as an adult capable of deciphering CTA maps. He is eleven years younger than me, but in my head he's still about six, which is how old he was when I left for college. Goodness, he's in the Army. If anyone knows how to find his way, it's Andrew. Can't help being the big sister, I guess. Drives them all crazy, but that's the point, right?
In knitting news, I finished Dan's mittens. He's been showing them off. Chris loved his hat, too. He even wore it while on stage at an open mic last night. Those are the kind of knitting gifts that feel good to give. One nice thing about new friends is that they haven't gotten any knitting from me yet. New friends equals new recipients. I've got a couple other new friends that need gifts. The bad thing is that spending time with them cuts into the knitting time. I guess I can sacrifice a stitch or two for good company.
I'll post pictures of the mittens and maybe the hat later. I can be such an airhead sometimes. I forgot to take a picture of the hat before I gave it to Chris.
