On Tuesday I finished my plying of the "Cool Rain" roving sent to me by Amy Boogie from the Boogie Knits Blog. Here it is! 192 yards DK wieght from 4 oz. South African Fine from Amy's Roving Club.
My HAT IS FINISHED! I have to say that this mosaic stuff is AWESOMELY fun to do. I see a LOT more of this in my future.... I had help from the usual suspects, but I got it done!!!! yea!!!! Here is the front taken last night in class at Knitting in La Jolla.
Ok, we are off to Catalina (an island off the coast of Southern California) for the Labour Day Weekend with my whole family. There is a new "Family Camp" over there. My parents are staying on their boat anchored off the beach and we will be in little tent like cabins on the beach. Poor Missy has to go into the local vet kennel for the weekend so we will miss her! Anyway, my sister and her husband and their three kiddos and all of us are going to be hanging out on the beach - Fun!!!
Our house gets it's FOR SALE sign on it today. We have been working like mad to get all the stuff done around here. The backyard landscaping is so cool and WHY DID WE NOT DO THIS EARLIER! I have pictures of it all later.
School starts on Tuesday - the day after we get back from Catalina so I'll probably get back on here on Wednesday.
Talk to you later! and have a great Labour Day Weekend!
