Finished a project!

I finished my Elizabeth Zimmerman's Pi shawl! I belong to way too many Yahoo groups!! This one is using EZ's almanac to make different projects each month. July is the Pi shawl. I started the shawl on July 12th and finished today! Just in time! I have several projects OTN and will probably skip the August project and go on to September's.

Catching up!

I am finally catching up with a few things! Isaac is taking a nap and I decided to get computer work done! I have been busy knitting and spinning-- What else!!! Here is a picture of my Elizabeth Z's Year KAL. I started it on July 12th and I am working on the last section of lace before knitting the lace border.

Here is a picture of Isaac- he found my cat ears from last Halloween. He has also worn them when playing football with Papa!!

We went to a baseball game (Idaho Falls Chuckers-a Kansas City farm team) for my birthday. When Isaac wasn't flirting with the girls behind us or sitting on my lap, I was knitting!

I have been spinning yarn for my Knitty Kal, and will post pictures later!

Mystery Stole 3

I am Very excited to be part of the Mystery Stole 3. We receive a clue each Friday and knit up that part for the week. Today was #2. There are over 6,000 members!!! I have already completed 15 rows of todays clue (only 50 rows in this clue). Here are a few pictures of what I have done so far. I am really enjoying the lace work and adding beads and so far I have not had to frog it! (rip it, rip it!!) If this was not enough I also joined a Knitty KAL were we each chose a pattern from Knitty.com and work on it and can post questions and generally encourage each other.

We had a great 4th! Gideon (our son-in-law) was part of a float! Isaac (our grandson) was excited to see "Da" in the parade. He will spend the next three weeks with us while Dad is at Reserve training and getting their home closed in order to join our daughter Rachel in Hawaii.
