Summertime and the living is easy.....

Well, almost summertime. A nice peak at it this past weekend and today. I held off turning on the air conditioner but the ceiling fans were whirling away.

Update on the rumor: 5th knitting store will open mid-July and not be across the street from 4th knitting store.

Saturday: I think many knitters were in their gardens and not at Ewe Knits on Saturday. But then I understand the week days were busy what with the sale. It was nice to have the time to chat with our customers. We had several new ladies find us. One is a gal that moved from San Fran last year with her husband and daughter. The child is really cute and sooo well behaved. Mom's a spinner and participates in Ren Faire's. She spins and the other ladies knit with it at the festivals. We chatted for about 30 min.

Sunday: So for 2 days I had my nieces lace stole blocking on the dining room floor. Bailey watched me lay it out and then ignored it. When I didn't move fast enough for him last night (his water bowl was empty, only because he had just drank it empty!) he scrunched it up! Then gave me a "so there" look. I pointed my finger at him, told him that was BAD, filled his water bowl and ignored him. Nearly killed him. But all was forgiven in about 5 min. We sat on the patio enjoying the cool pre-mosquitoes night

The third self fringing shawl is done. Just need to weave in the ends and block. They do look so much better after they're blocked.

Baby patterns are on my mind. My oldest niece is expecting my first Great-niece/nephew. I have 2 Dale baby books and can't decide what to do. I may end up with a baby blanket and a few hats. But then I have the Berries and Leaves bonnet that I picked up last year at Maryland Sheep and Wool.....what to do what to do?

It's national Turn off your tv week....I'm compromising...I'm taping Spartacus! 4 hours of Luka without a shirt.....
