Today is the Medieval Festival at Franciscan University. My kids have been enjoying this time for several years.
This year, Spencer is away at school, Christopher went to a seminar for budding young men, and Tim bought 2 anoles (lizards) for his best friend and is tending to them upstairs. Since parking is ridiculous and I am not that into it, I dropped the other 3 kids off and came home to blog and have fun with Ravelry. (I just happen to be there when Sarah was on the pony).
Ravelry is a site for knitters, as I have mentioned in previous posts. I have had an account for a few years and have used it to find patterns, get ideas, buy yarn, etc. I have been very blessed by others through Ravelry (see yesterday's post). I felt that it was time to give back; to list my yarns, leave my comments, show my projects, and join the community. In real life terms this means that there's yarn everywhere, my neighbors are wondering why I am taking pictures of my clothes on the porch, my kids are wondering if they are going to get a hot meal, and I am having the time of my life.
When I pull out all of my yarn stash, my son Christopher sees future economic benefit. And he tries to get me to see it that way. I see pure woolly joy. And I want to knit my whole stash today.
