1st trip tomorrow.

For those who know me, they will imagine I am all in a tizzy. Oh well, I am sure it will be fine. Today I started a bunch of new projects. A sparkly/non sparkly shawl called "Mariposa" in South West Trading Co. Yin & Yang......aaaaghh only 308 stitches is a beautiful stitch, "Frost Flowers", which I've wanted to work for a looonnnngg time, now I have a good reason. Also started the "Hearts of Faith" scarf in Tranquility, PLUS, the somewhat kooky, yet really cool "Amaizing Hug" wrap in CORN "Amaizing" yarn. Yes, corn. No jokes, okay? I promise not to eat the shawl...but might have to scarf (knitting humor) a whole box of Wheat Thins next chance I get. Guess which is which, and you will get a prize. really.

I also finished the pieces for the "Hey Teach" in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I sure did love that yarn. Now "just" have to sew it up & add the collar and button bands. Maybe next week. I will be on the road most of the rest of this week. It should be fun. Petal, MS, Meridian, Canton, MS, Lacombe, LA, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, LA. Lotsa good stuff. Then back at the Cottage for the Sock-A-Thon Saturday.

My HS English teacher, Frank McCourt just passed away. I wonder if when he said I should become a writer, he meant, "a string-blog writer"? I will miss him very much.

    Heidi, That is so neat the Frank McCourt was your teacher. I'll bet he was an excellent teacher and would be proud of you. I loved "Angela's Ashes".He was an amazing person. You are lucky to have known him. Alice.
