I'll never grow up since I still believe that when school's out for summer it means nothing but good times. Now that I have a kid I'm realizing how much I hated school! I hope my disappointments don't rub off on Felix. We'll see.
Meanwhile, my Internet connection was down for two weeks. I took the opportunity to read a book (Factotum...loved it), and visit with friends.
I'm finishing a sweater for Knitscene; as usual it will be in the mail at the last minute. Something always comes up and puts me behind schedule. This one is looking pretty pretty (yay!). They sent me some yummy yarn, the kind you can knit with in any weather, with amazing drape and in a very optimistic color.
I've also been swatching for a lace shawl. I love lace knitting so much. Oh, on ravelry I saw that a knitter, Grace Yaskovic, made a triangle shawl using the Lace Chuppah charts. The link is to her blog which has a great photo of her shawl being blocked. Don't we all need someone to block for us?
And, I’ve been making lots of sketches. Life without the Internets is a little lonely but productive.
