So far, I have spun up two skeins of yarn.
Today I divided a braid of fiber, used hand-cards to blend the colors (and bloody my knuckles).
Since we last chatted, BG celebrated his 5th birthday. As confirmation that he's growing, during his pre-kindergarten physical, it was revealed that he's grown 2 1/2 inches and gained 8LBs since last summer!!! School starts for him on July 25th. They are having a busy summer, and he is so enjoying his time with his stay at home mom. We get together for special days....one of which was a recent viewing of the new movie "Monster University"(really cute movie) and a sleep-over. Baby sister will be here in less than 2 months. WOW..... exciting times!
The hubbs and I went to an Art Fair this past weekend. It's a pretty good sized production here in Des Moines. I bought a yarn bowl.
Our crazy weather continues. My sister who lives in Idaho is experiencing uncommonly hot weather, we on the other hand have had a realively cool summer so far. In fact, just yesterday we were treated to a very chilly surprise!
I spent a bit of time pitting these beautiful cherries last evening:
I've started the Mystery Mittens KAL. First clue produced directions for knitting lacy cuffs. Two for each mitten. It's intriguing. Next clue comes out Friday.
Will be back in a few days with some colorwork mittens that are nearing completion.
Update on Sofee. Her vet is happy with her dental recovery. The jaw bone is also doing well. The "hot spot" or whatever it is on her hip remains a problem. We are trying new medication and hoping for the best. She has 2 weeks - and if not better will make another visit to her doc. We're keeping fingers crossed. Allergy season will be starting soon. I hate that she's not 100% going into it.....
Enjoy your summer....it's slipping by fast it seems. Take care - catch ya later! k
