I wanted to share some knitting but, man, it takes for-freakin'-ever to send a phone pic to myself by email... or to receive... whatever.
There's progress on Stripe Study II and I am LOVING it! I'm itching to cast on III, but first things first... or second things... heh.
I am VERY slowly making progress on the black hole Gretel, and also on a project I don't think I've even mentioned here -- Mary Jane Mucklestone's "Sea Green" Little Arrowhead Lace scarf, which I am calling "Juniper Scarf" because I'm knitting it using (finally!) the lovely ball of Sporfarm Baby Alpaca (color: Juniper!) given to me a million years ago by Jessica in a Secret Pal swap (OMG, remember those? That's what they were called, right?). Anyway, oh so LOVELY!! I'm making mine with fewer repeats across because I don't have the yardage that MJM did, and I wish to maximize length.
So, perhaps I'll take some "good" photos tonight.
Yesterday was all about getting things done... taking people places, registering stuff, getting my hair cut (I love it!!), closing this and opening that, banking... more than the usual day-off running around.
Monday was all about the mom, the sibs, the aunts and the uncles, the cousins...
My sibs and I outnumbered the cousins 2:1, but it was a big deal. There's my cousin Rae, me, Michael, Ann, cousin Missy, and Karen.
Missy's the one visiting from Albuquerque -- pretty much taking a driving tour of Wisconsin in getting around to see as many people as possible!
(What can I say? She's the middle child.)
We had a great time together! Looking forward to a possible meet-up with Rae at Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in a couple of weeks. (Just learned that Dixie and Yellow Dog Knitting will be there! I haven't seen her in ages!) And I sure have a renewed desire to visit Albquerque again!
