Knitalongs

Hello dear 5-10 readers!

Sorry it has been hellaciously busy around here. Oldest's confirmation was May 18th and all the grandparents were here. They left last Tuesday and her graduation was the 25th. Plus hubby went to Monterey on a conference from Tuesday to Thursday (Brownell Circle as we knew it doesn't exist, Tanya! Sad but appropriate in the end.) Add in my job and end of school for the kids and its chaos.

The baby blanket has only 9 more rows!! I got a lot done today on our car trip to Corinth, MS to check out Civil War sites in the area. We went to Corinth, Brices Crossroads and Tupelo battlefields all in one day. That's a lot of Mississippi!!

I want to do a knitalong this summer but there's too many to choose from. So due to deadlines and the joy of overcommitting, I've joined the Trek Along With Me and The Amazing Lace. My LYS in Germantown, Rainbow Yarn and Fibers, is finally stocking Trekking and Opal. So I think this pair maybe a Christmas present for someone. For the Amazing Lace, I'm finally going to knit a a clapotis. Now I just need to figure out which of my Lorna's Lace Lion and Lamb yarn that I've had marinating is going to be the winner. I have Seaside and Watercolor. What do you think??

duh.... :-) I followed the CLAPOTIS LINK embedded in your message....straight to Knitty. Could I BE any dumber? I am truly DISGUISED as a functioning adult. That said, off to escort three children to the pool. I know, I'm considering the irony of this, as well.
