Grand Adventure and a Place to Rest

Hello All. My wife of 36 years and I have decided to part ways and divorce each other. It will be an amicable process which reduces stress and complications.

Pink and Blue

According to, the shift toward pink and blue happened gradually. For centuries, all children had worn practical white dresses, which could easily be pulled up to change diapers, and bleached when said diapers inevitably exploded. Pastel baby clothes were introduced in the mid-19th century, but according to University of Maryland historian Jo B. Paoletti, author of Pink and Blue: Telling the Girls From the Boys in America, the colors weren't gender-specific at first.

I'm back!

I've been missing for a great while due to health issues. But I'm Baaack! After many long years I finally have a diagnosis and drugs that work! It seems somehow at this late age I've developed absent status epilepsy. My brain seizures were causing me to "go absent" for periods lasting up to six days. Then come back for around 10 days only to go absent for another 3-6 days. To say my wife, (adult) kids, and I have been to hell and back over the last few years is putting it mildly. But after starting the drugs last December I've only had one seizure that lasted only a few days.

A Finished Project and a Question :)

I finished the Prayer Shawl knitted in Indian Cross-Stitch so here are a couple of pictures I took with my cell phone so you can see how it looks. I think I'm going to make another one in rainbow stripes that will really show off the pattern and the waves.

Some Turkish Socks

A friend of mine from the East Black Sea recently opened a cafe. His mom is the one who made the Hemshin socks I posted several months ago. She's now selling some of her socks and working in the cafe, so I thought is show you some of them. (And I hope I can get her to explain how she does her heels--I pretty much see but I'd rather not get it wrong and have to frog back brought all that color work.)
