I need to talk about knitting more

I haven't talked about my knitting in a while.
I've finished 12 items so far this year.
Right now I'm still working on the afghan for my nephew. Not doing very well with it.
I'm making the broadstreet mittens for Heather. Using Lion Brand Magic Stripes in Jelly Belly.
They will look nice.
Just finished Brians socks Magic Strips.
Finished a scarf for me. Lion Brand Fancy Fur in jungle print. They are Halloween colors so I have a scarf to wear for October.
Big fight in my family. My parents are not moving to the new house with my brother. I am upset. Nothing I can do about it. My sister wants me and her to subsidize my parents income so they can stay in their house. I don't think I can do it, but I guess I'll just have to try.
Still haven't told my husband. I told my kids yesterday. We are all taking a wait and see attitude.
My brother is in Atlanta for a week. So my parents have a few days by themselves before my sister comes down for the weekend. So I'll leave my parents alone to see how they do. I was there yesterday. My sister will be down tomorrow and is leaving Tuesday. So I'll make sure I stop in on Wednesday. My brother is back on Thursday.
Wish I had all the answers to the problems in the world. Since I don't I just have to muddle along.

Hang in there Dympna - it'll work out. Maybe the idea of moving is a bigger deal after all so everyone's working out all their stuff.
