I always end up doing recaps...
So, had girl's night last week, while Tony was out of town, and we took silly/bad pictures with tiaras because we watched the Ms. America pageant. The girls asked me not to post them (really bad pics). I have to say that the pageant was incredibly enlightening, and actually touched a lot on socio-economic problems. Most importantly, the U.S. needs a better education system, especially in Alabama:
Ya...ummm... it's A-L-A-B-A-M-A, with an L for Literacy. (Hi everyone out there in Alabama!)
Knitting news: I still knit. Promise!
I finished the scarf from One Skein I made for my cousin in Argentina. It turned out really cute, and the best part is that is that I used 6 balls I had left over from my Bolero Jacket fiasco. From the pictures you can't tell, but it is half made of Cashmerino Chunky and the other half from MERINO Chunky. Oh well. People that get hand-made gifts should not complain.
Salina is on hold. I really want to finish my mom's mother's day gift first, so Salina has to wait. Here is a pic of the back and some of the front, just to prove that I don't just talk about knitting it.
As far as my mom's mother's day gift goes - I need a swift. (is that what you call it?) 'Cause you know what happens when you cross some wine, with a yarn winder and really thin yarn? This happens:
So annoyed. However, in the end, I had a nice little collection of yarn balls. Before and after pics below.
I will try to update this more often. Meanwhile, if this post has any spelling or grammatical errors, people from Alabama feel free to contact me.
