A lazy Saturday.... for some....

This is how the Haugen household looked for most of the morning. What a rough life they lead!

This is what I've been doing. I've always wanted to learn how to knit and Lily finally inspired me enough to try. I mean, what was I waiting for? Plus we received some amazing things from the hospital that were donated from people who had been in our same situation. I want to be able to recipricate the gifts to others that follow in our painful footsteps, in Lily's honor. Of course I wish for no one to ever have to go through that but that's like wishing for world's just not going to happen. So I've decided to teach myself how to knit. I can kind of crochet but I seem to get bored with that. It seems like you can do so many more things with knitting. I'm starting out with a scarf. I've also signed up for a beginner's class to get some professional instruction as I'm probably not doing it entirely correct.

I also got a new phone as my mot.orola Q sucks! Lovin' the green color, although it'd be better if it was purple!! How cute is it??

And one last pic as these are my favorite of all the flowers we received in Lily's honor. Aren't they precious? I love all the color and absolutely everything about them. The pot/vase is going to go in my scrapbook room when the flowers have died. I think I might actually try to recreate the whole arrangement in silk. We'll see:)

Have a great weekend!

Thank you so much Kelly for your support, it means so much to me to have moms who understand reach out to me, I think about you all the time and my heart goes out to you, I hate that we have to be here, but I'm so glad to have you. I crave the kind of comfort only moms with angels can give right now. I feel so humbled when you are goning through your own grieving and pain, you still offer your hand in support to me. I can't thank you enough. ~hugs~

I wonder what it is about yarn, I've mentioned that I would like to start knitting, I even pulled out my yarn and hooks today. Maybe there is some sort of healing in those little knots, I dont know. So far I've only made a hat, a really crummy hat, but none the less, a hat, and some scarf's with the scarf loom. I'd like to see what you make.

I find knitting therapeutic, so hopefully it ends up being helpful for you too. Taking a class really does help, because it is hard to know if you are doing it right or wrong even with the best book.
