i went to kansas last summer to help my cousins. they had just moved back into their house after they had added a nice addition and a basement. i helped them with children, cleaning, and a baby! =) every night i knitted in my room, adding a little more every chance i got. trying to keep it a surprise for the whole family was hard, but i managed, it was quite a challenge with the youngsters always wanting to be by my side, hardly leaving it even to let me sleep.
