My great-grandmother Hazel passed away last night. I'm pretty bummed as I was lucky enough to have a relationship with her that started when I was very young. She used to watch my siblings and I after elementary school. She was 94 years old. Although her goal these past few years was to make it to 100, I still hope that I can have such a long life! We will miss her and the fantastic, albeit crazy, stories she would tell us.
In more uplifting news, I started a knitting class with my mother-in-law last night! The class is 3, 2-hour sessions and we are starting with a simple project - a dishcloth. I have started my dishcloth 4 different times now because i always seem to add on a stitch somehow. The shop where we are taking the classes has lots of great projects on display, so I am hoping those will motivate me to continue!
