Last week was filled up with other things besides knitting. Shocking yes? The boy graduated from Gr. 9. It would have been with honours but his poor sewing mark (65% which is damn good by my standards for a kid who only went into it for the girls) kept him out. His average was over 80%, but that damn option... oh well! HIGH SCHOOL in the fall. /falls over dead
Anyhoo.. its been hotter than HELL here which is of course why I thought that knitting a Log Cabin afghan out of 100% wool was GREAT IDEA! No really. WHAT AM I THINKING??? Not much apparently. Its from The Mason Dixon book and it is really really REALLY fun to knit. I think I'd love to do one out of cotton next. Mmmm... cotton. The yarn is my Knit Picks order and the colours look true on my monitor. Maybe not yours I guess but its funky retro-a-licious! The man should have been a child of the 70's I reckon.
I have other interesting non knitting news too.. my 20th high school reunion is in August and I have sorta almost maybe kinda decided I wanna go. Again... WHAT AM I THINKING!?! Wasn't highschool itself enough? Can I lose eleventy twelve bazillion pounds before August? Will anyone remember me? OMG what if too many people remember me?? Funnily enough I was talking to my FIL about this the last time I saw him. He said he went to his last reunion (40 years maybe? How can that even happen??) and immediately regressed (Like OMG theres Mr X! Whatta loser..) then caught himself (like OMG That is totally not me! I wouldn't say that now!) and I of course have paraphrased. My sweet FIL would probably never talk like a Valley girl. Although I have seen him sing Britney Spears (Thank you Cranium!). I digress.. (SURPRISE!) though.. WHAT AM I THINKING?? Ah well.. time will tell. Maybe time will tell too much though.
Boy I hope it cools off here.. heat sucks.
