here's 2 of 'em





















Photo #1: My sister-in-law, Zalika. She knits while she strolls, stuffing the loosened skein in her bosom. (In this shot, she was reaching the end of a roll.) Last month, after some hard studying, she became an American citizen. Now she has a dual-citizenship: USA and Niger. Zalika is well known for her African cuisine: Torodi Hot Sauce and Sweet Potato Fries. Her American hobbies are fishing and blueberry picking. She's a pretty cool lady.


Photo #2: I call her Miss Belly. We shared Spain together: Spanish tortilla at 10 pm, a night in a palace, and the heady scent of orange blossoms. I love to be around her, in any country. Everyone is extremely eager to see this baby; we're guessing a mass of red curly hair and black-frame glasses. Danica deserves a number. I'll dub her Friend #40.

I am blessed to have such interesting friends.

Oooh, is that Jim's wife? I've never met her. By the way, that looks more like crochet than knitting to me--and left-handed, too.

What an abundance of interesting friends you have, too! We have a "miss belly" in our family, and cannot wait to see our new little one, too, when it's fully time.
