Let’s play ketchup! Because there really is no other way I’m going to catch up this blog.
I started Diamond Fantasy Shawl. I’m using Brooklyn Handspun signature in chocolate covered cherries I’ve had stashed for a while. I think I’ve knit about 3 repeats. See the cute little markers I’m using? Mom gave them to me.
they are just so stinking cute! And just like (almost) every other knitter on the planet I’ve started a pair of Monkey socks
This picture just makes me laugh, my foot looks so wonky! Second sock is on the needles, and will hopefully be done soon. I’m using Sweet Georgia superwash sock in Spark that I trade with Suzanne. I’m dying to cast on for my waving lace socks. Last week I got my yarn for Mystery Lace shawl 3 from Mom. I still have to cast on…
isn’t it pretty? Its the pewter color. So.pretty.must.cast.on.soon! Mike and I took Kailey and Allysa to Brockway for their 4th of July celebration. Mike’s sister rode over with us. We watched the
2freakinghour parade. And later met up with the rest of the family to watch the fireworks. I have to say, I really enjoy meeting up with Mike’s family to watch the fireworks there, its become sort of a tradition for us.

Kailey and Allysa had a blast watching the parade! Kailey didn’t mind all the noise, but the shriners in their little cars really freaked her out! Allysa got a whole shabang of candy. I don’t know what it is about parades. But I cry. Yep, cry. Just a little teary not full out crying. Anyway, there was a bagpiping band (?) click here to see the video. The music was beautiful.
Ok, I think I’m all caught up!
