Today is raining. So far this year we have had some rain to get the area back to "normal" then we had some fabulous weather, nice and sunny and comfortable. But, alas, all good things must come to an end...it is raining today and will probably be all week. Oh well....
I have been involved in a few projects. I found out about a group that does afghans for returning service people that are wounded and recovering. They mainly distribute to Walter Reed Hospital but do go to a few others as well. I have so far knitted 2 rectangles for this charity and have more to go. I had to get "manly" yarn the other day. Never having bought manly yarn before, I had to consult several of my co-workers to make sure the yarn I got was "manly" enough and not to frufru... I love to do things for charity, especially our service people.
The kids are finally back in school today!!! (Doing the major mom happy dance!!) The four older kids had ski week off last week. Rah. It was nice not having to get up at 6:30 every morning. On Friday and Monday, my youngest also was off, so I actually got to sleep in....I made sure of this by closing the bedroom door and making sure my "labbie alarm clock" did not come in at 6:30 to wake me up! I love my labbies, but I also love my sleep.
I have made some progress on the baby sweater. I am very excited, I think it will be nice for the baby. I also got a 5 pound yarn skein of yellow to make a blanket for the baby as well. My dh's only comment was did I really have to super-size my yarn???
I am still working on my socks. I will be posting pictures soon, just to show that I really am working on them, and all the other projects as well!
So, stay dry and have a sparkling day!!!
