A Few Announcements

You will be as delighted as I was to hear that Lynn's latest grandson was born yesterday morning, Monday, the 31st of August. His name is Wesley Dirk Debbinks and he weighed in at 7 lb., 15 oz. He was born to Lynn's son Brian and his wife, after what sounds like a long process. I am so happy to hear of his safe delivery, and that the parents are doing just fine! Join me in congratulating the family!

This fall I'm taking four more credit hours than I did during the spring semester, and with just one week into the semester so far, I can already tell that it is going to be very busy. As I said to Lynn on the phone yesterday morning, the best time to yell for help is before the waves close over your head. Consequently, I'm going to be taking some time off of Knit Doctor for a few months. I will certainly miss everyone--getting to be part of your projects and your knitting journey for the last few years has meant a lot to me. It has been my privilege, and I've learned a lot in the process. Best wishes to all my regulars and not-as-regulars, and keep in touch!

In the same vein, I'll also be taking some time off from writing the blog. When school is so busy I find that I have very little time to knit, and my inspiration for blog topics has always come from the projects I have worked on. I may pop in from time to time, or Lynn may find someone to take up the reins--we left all of that open for the time being. Again, I'll miss being part of your knitting life, and I want to thank all of you for your support and your readership in the last two years.

Best wishes to you all, and goodbye--for now!
