This is my Jessica, who was home on leave earlier this month. She leaves for Iraq on Sunday. Will it never end? It was hard enough having my son go 3 times, but this is my little girl…and this really sucks. Sorry, I know that sounds a bit juvenile, but it’s the best I’ve got right now. It’s going to be a long 7 months! The bright side is that shortly after she comes home she will be getting out of the Marines, she chose not to re-enlist.
I made hubby a stocking. It was a very quick knit and he really likes it. I let him chose the color and he paid very close attention to my daily progress. It’s the Snowy Night Gansey Stocking by Lisa Carnahan from the book “Christmas Stockings: 18 Holiday Treasures to Knit”.
