Carrie was there, and Melanie, our knitting buddy, LD's third grade teacher (she also taught me and both of my boys) was there. I should do a post on her sometime; she's awesome. I have posted a little about her before.
The LYS owner brought yarn and there was a special braiding project to try. Unfortuately all of the pics of me knitting look too awful to post. I don't know why I can't just smile until the picture is over. I just have to start talking, or turn my head. Oh well.
It was a really nice, sunny day, but later after we came home there was another thunderstorm (we've had quite a few lately) and there was hail. Click the pics to see it bigger.
There was a real photographer there, too, for a little newspaper here, or something. I'm not sure, because while he or she was there, I was at the yarn shop with Melanie (red shirt in the pics). I had some sock yarn money burning a hole in my pocket. LD will be in the picture, though. That's just the way it goes. lol I did get some really cool looking Austermann Step, though. I'll snap a pic and show it off sometime.
Speaking of showing off....I have some more pics from graduation. My little SkaterPunk is an artist, and he had a showing in the front display case of his school. The art work behind these pictures is all his. Some of the pottery he had there was already removed, though. I am so proud! He asked me for some of his old work, and told me there was going to be a senior art show, he just didn't tell me it was him!! His class voted him most talented, and class rebel. Yeah!!
I stuck a couple of pics of him standing with part of his class, too, because they are just so funny to me. I always think of him as my little boy, but he is tall! As I was looking at all of the pictures from graduation, I realized that he is a head taller than everyone else. I think that's so cool. (He is easy to spot in each pic)
We went to his college orientation on Wednesday, and I would have had a really cool knitting story, if I weren't such a chicken. As Hubby and I were waiting for SP to get done with his student part of the day, I was looking around for a seat to get comfy and knit in, and there was this kid knitting. He was a cool kid, too, you could tell from the yarn he was using. hehe I tried to sneak a pic of him, but none would turn out. Hubby said I should just go tell him I'm a blogger (or crazy knit addict or something) and ask for a pic. His parents were there, and he was probably 18, since he'll be a college freshman, but I chickened out. As they were leaving, though, he saw me knitting, and smiled and gave a nod to my project. I told SP that he should make friends with this kid, since he's obviously very cool. ;)
Well, enough bragging, I am working on four projects right now (sweater, baby blanket, and 2 prs. of socks). I have a list of things my loved ones want, too. I joined ravelry today, though, so who knows when I'll have time to knit. Who'm I kidding? I'll make time!
