Projects! Projects!

It's been a PACKED weekend so far, and there's more to come...Saturday errands ran me across town to assist DD with an errand she had to run, during which time I waited in the car and knit on a square (which I'll show you tomorrow) for a blanket we're making another friend from our Roanoke Valley Spinners & Knitters group who's had a crisis in her life. Her son has been injured and we're knitting squares from donated Mission Falls 1824 Superwash Wool for a blanket for Mom! I finished mine tonight, but it's blocking so I'll show it to you tomorrow...

Of course there were all the other chores a weekend brings, more laundry (I swear I LIVE in the laundry room sometimes!) and clearing clutter, and sweeping up kitty fur - where does it all come from? Especially since the majority of it is white and the kitty who is white, is TINY and shorthaired? I swear I pick up at least 1.5 cat's worth of white fur every week. She doesn't look bald!

I also made up an order:
Isn't this stunning? This is a Michael Miller print of lilacs and the colors are amazing - the flowers look so real. The size of bag is a Knitnana, and the customer also wanted a checkbook cover to match.
The Big Sis wanted a checkbook cover to match HER Knitnana that I showed you a couple of weeks ago...
It wasn't ALL work Saturday - I also got down to my favorite store: Knitters' Knook. Becky had ordered the Inox grey 16-inch circulars in size 1 for me when I realized that my Susan Bates (size 2s) were making a huge difference in my ability to SEE the needles through dark yarns.

Don't get me wrong. I'm still holding out hope that Knitpicks will hear my plea and come out with Blonde Harmonys, but till then...these will be fine. I also picked up a ball of Austermann Step in this gray/burgundy ragg yarn to make SIL a pair of socks.

And this is one of my birthday presents:
A mouse pad...I love the kitties' expressions, don't you?

There's more to come, as the weekend is only half over!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
