Boy, things got away from me quick this month. It was mainly work that got in the way of the rest of my life — hate when that happens! LOL
My birthday was Monday. That old Tennessee Ernie Ford song keeps going through my mind — Another year older and deeper in debt… But seriously. I did have a nice birthday. DD and I had lunch on Sunday with my mother and my aunt. Lunch with a coworker on Monday. DD took me to dinner on Monday evening at our favorite little Lebanese restaurant. Ah, calories galore — that is what you have to look forward to as you age. No fiber or music gifts, though. Sometimes I wonder if my friends and family know me at all. Although I did get some nifty giftcards — Starbuck’s, Borders, Chipotle, Hobby Lobby —
My mother told me that CityArts is putting on a breast cancer show. She is working on a drawing. I have agreed to knit a scarf either to hang alone or around her drawing. At first I thought I would knit a fairly plain and simple scarf in a light pink yarn. Then I remembered that Knitty had published a special breast cancer issue a couple of years ago and decided to check there for ideas first. I am now feverishly working on a Boobie Scarf in fuschia WoolEase. I say feverishly because I have restarted the darn thing 5 times and it must be finished by September 6. Will I finish in time? Who knows? I restarted for the final time last night while watching Rockstar Supernova. The problem I’m having with it is small holes when I short row. I checked the site for corrections to the pattern and there were none. Must be operator error of some kind. But I am determined to move along — I may just end up weaving in some yarn to close the gaps. Any suggestions?
