Woo Hoo



I finished my Flower basket shawl. It came to a whopping 72" x 32". I just kept knitting until I had no yarn. I stayed up until 12:30 last night(unheard of). It is out of Lisa Souza's pony, a fingering weight, in wild things. I wish the camera could pick up the subtle color changes. You are a genious Lisa!
We are taking the kids to the Field Museum and the Rainforest Cafe in Chicago. I enjoy stuff like this as much as they do. They shine on vacations or outings. They never poop out and they think everything is interesting. It should be a very fun day!

I was also in Chicago today. My son came into Ohare at 9:30pm so I went up early to explore a bit---not that great an idea on such a hot day but I did walk around Lincoln Park Zoo and then along some streets. Haven't been to the Rainforest Cafe though---hope it was all fun!
