Growing Up

This lovely young lady started 8th grade today. It seems like only yesterday her daddy and I were taking her to her first day of kindergarten. Where does the time go?

Our "hurt book" order from Interweave arrived yesterday. I've enjoyed perusing my selections: Wrap Style and Knitter's Stash. I also have A History of Handknitting but have not looked through it yet. I've found a couple of nice wraps in the Wrap Style book and several projects in Knitter's Stash--so many great patterns, so little knitting time.

If you like tank top type patterns, you must take a look at Amanda's page. She has two very nice patterns that she's designed. Yes, I bought both. I couldn't decide between the two, so what would any good knitter do in that situation??

I was chained to my desk today for a conference call most of today, and in order to maintain my sanity, there had to be yarn in my hands. I crocheted a flower pin for daughter. We felted her Booga bag (finally!) the other day and I used some of the leftover yarn for the pin. I'd post a picture, but the pin has disappeared somewhere in the "teen zone" of the house. I'll have to go search for it.

Wow! Almost a high schooler.

I missed the hurt book sale, by the time I checked it out most of the knitting books were sold out:( I really wanted a copy of Wrap Style. Knitter's Stash is great. I got it when it first came out. So far I've made one thing out of it but the list of wants is pretty long.

Time passes quicky. Doesn't it.

Knitter's Stash is one of the first knitting books I've brought. I need to make some of those linen dishcloths. I have yet to get Wrap Style.

Both of Amanda's tops are great.
