Didn't This Used to Be a Knitting Blog?

I know, I haven't blogged about anything in forever.

I've had a lot to talk about, but very little of it is knitting related. A lot of it is mommy related (or more accurately, step-mommy related), but not necessarily the kind of thoughts that I want to randomly throw out into the universe.

There has been a tiny bit of knitting going on. I finished my first pair of Summer of Socks socks, five days late, sadly. You can see them in the photo above. I knit them out of Maizy, a yarn made from corn!

I've done a lot more reading - Pilgrim's Progress, The Pillars of the Earth, and several beachy, romantic comedy type books, and this, a book I highly recommend to all stepmothers. I seem incapable of reading and knitting at the same time.

I hope to be a better knitter and blogger in the future, but we'll see how it goes.

I might be wrong, but my bet is the problems you're facing are more likely to be age related (his age) than the kind of relationship you guys have.

Forget the "step" part. You are his mom. Some kids just go through a phase when they reach double digits on their age.

Hang in there. Being a mother isn't an easy task.

I never knit when my children were little...just no time. I wish i had may have calmed me down a bit.

Any sign of your prize yarn yet?
