So, on Friday I was inspired while reading my blog list. On Babycocktails and Knitting, I noticed her finished Josephine top from the Summer '07 Interweave Knits, and remembered seeing it when I bought my copy of the issue. The more I thought about it, the more excited I got. At lunch I ran and bought some Paton's Grace, in the taupe color. Well, after 2 false starts ( I was apparently too tired to add correctly) I got the count right on Saturday morning. I worked a couple of rounds and then took the girls to the mall, since Katie's BFF stayed the night. I worked on it some more when we got home, and few rounds on Sunday. It was on Monday that I made lots of head way. See, I had to take Katie in for a physical for school volley ball. In the , almost 4 to 5 hours of sitting in the doctor's office, I got a lot done. Granted, my thumb is hurting and just a little swollen. But, here is how much I have done:
I am loving this pattern! As you can see, I've decided to knit it in the round, just because I don't want to have to seam.
While I was pulling this pic off of the camera, I found a few more that I haven't posted. So, to begin with, I'll start with someone who decided to hide from the house for a while, and that would be Miss Moonie:
Then, I forgot to post the great socks that Anne made for me for the Summer Sock Party '07:
They fit me perfectly! And the colors are great.
Up next, is a pic of when Moonie decided to rejoin the rest of the world, and tried to share Butter's bed, and as you can see, Butter wasn't too thrilled about that.
Then, I found the one of where we were vacuuming the living room, and the cats hate that dreaded machine. This is were I found them, hiding behind the couch.
Then, the highlight of the weekend before. The new Harry Potter book! I stalked the mail man until he showed up.
And, as I said in my post on Friday, I met Beth. And she brought me her pizzell iron.
And, of course, I had to try it right away!
And here are the yummy almond flavored pizzells that I made:
Despite the fact that everyone said they didn't like almond flavored, they sure disappeared very quickly.
