What a week. First, let me thank all of you that participated in Earth Day. As promised (or threatened) I planted more stuff for the butterflies and cleaned up my elderly neighbor's yard. After that, I set up my Intex pool and filled it up. I started on Saturday at 10:00 AM and the hose was finally turned off at 7:00 PM. Of course, the sun was not able to heat the water up enough for me to swim on Sunday, but all in good time.
The crazy weather here on Wednesday made me glad that I have the mommyvan most days. The sky was actually green at one point and was realy ugly. Say some extra prayers (to which ever deity you chose) for all of those that were tragically affected.
More good news. I finished the blanket for my neice on Friday (04/20/2007). The ends have been woven and I even washed it in Dreft. It is wonderful. I will be taking pictures this weekend and will post them too. I also found out that she is having a boy, so the Monet was a great choice. This will be my mom's first great-grandchild. I'm happy for my brother and just glad that it isn't one of my daughters with that honor. They are both her first grandchildren. They will also be her first two to graduate from college. An honor that I am glad to see them obtain.
More knitting has been taking place. I am almost to the join point for the Sahara and I'm glad that Ruby posted some better instructions for the join. Hopefully I'll get that done tomorrow. I will be taking another WIP on a road trip to Nacogdoches to see the Munchkin this weekend, so hopefully I'll have another FO when I get home.
I have been adding more blogs to the favorites list and I am proud to say that the Knitting Troll has mentioned me in her latest posting. Thank you for the shout out (as the kids would say).
And one more blog to mention. Empty Nest Knitter has a great post about the recent bomb in Austin. All I can say is, "Don't Mess With Texas"!
Have a great weekend and keep knitting across Texas!
