My progress on the Chevron Scarf. I have memorized the pattern, so I am able to knit much faster that usual. I do only really knit it once the kids are in bed. I hate having to put my knitting down every few minutes... I really find that unless we are all outside that I cannot knit during the day. Oh well, less than a week before they are in school.
Our big beautiful spider that lives outside our front door. I panicked a few days ago, because DH and DS12 cleaned all the cobwebs and other yuck that sticks to the outside of the house and I really thought that they gave the spider a permanent eviction notice and gave her little cement shoes... but she is back!! Every night I put on the front light a take a look at what Miss Spider is doing. She makes the most wonderful webs. They are a wonder to look at, especially with the morning dew. Can you tell we have seen Charlotte's Web this summer. What a wonderful movie!! The kids love her too. OK, now before you think that I need an adjustment on my meds.... if she were in the house she would be received with an ear piercing scream and I would be jumping all over the place. But with me in *my* home and her in her *outside* home we can live happily together.
The cute bags I got from Stuck in Illinois on Etsy
DD9 had a recital this week, so no knitting was done. Hence no Woolly Wednesday post. Buuuuuuuut we have the swan from the diorama that she is working on for her school project. I may just be one of those overly proud moms... but I think it's great... did I mention that she is 9?
So that is our week in a post.
I have not started anything new, I'm trying to get all my WIP's moving along. I should make time to get this Blogger thing worked out... seems something changed and I still cannot get links to work... oy
