Updated info about the socks two posts down: they're Nancy Bush's pattern Gentleman's Sock for Evening Wear (Rav link) made with Ella Rae Lace Merino in color 18 :) And a big "Thank you!" to my friend Yael for making me the great signature image I've started using. She's a design genius and also kicks butt at Mahjong - I'm so lucky to know her! We've got an art project day planned for the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for the results...
Happy Saturday! At this moment we're right in the middle of the Easter Triduum, and I'm so thrilled that tonight we'll get to welcome the members of this year's RCIA class into full communion with the Church (for those of you who aren't too familiar with Catholicism, RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, and it's basically a program of catechesis for people who want to convert to Catholicism or for Catholics who want to complete any of their sacraments of initiation - baptism, confirmation, and eucharist). It has been such a rewarding experience helping to teach the class this year, getting to know all of our catechumens and watching them move ahead on their journeys of faith. So number one on my list of things that are making me smile right now is getting to spend tonight celebrating with these lovely ladies.
