Not really mia-I'm actually old enough to remember mias- I'm just really enjoying getting some extra time.

All three of my kids are in school at the same time and riding the bus so I suddenly have free time. Everyone said "You won't know what to do." Ha!!!! I still don't have enough hours to do all that I want to do.

I'm now cleaning my black hole called the loft. We have a loft in my bedroom that we have not organized since we moved here. Now that I could actually use it I'd like to have it clean.

I'm almost finished spinning the bfl from Lisa Souza and I think that is going to be my next sweater project. It is worsted/aran weight. I think I'll have about 1,000 yds. one skein is just bfl and the others are(850 yds) one ply shetland one ply bfl. I'm thinking very basic to show off the colors. Any suggestions? I'm thinking just a basic cardi with the only bfl trimmings.

I'm off to free more needles from stalled projects:-)

I hate posting without pics but this weekend I should finish my mystery shawl!!!

This is Marti and I and two of our children. the rest of them were too busy;-)

This is my quicky wedding stole. I bought this skein from Lisa S at Convergence thinking I would finish my sil's stole sooner. I got the brilliant idea to crochet a shawl to be able to be finished in time. I love this I can wear it as a stole and then in the winter as a scarf with my winter coat. Fun stuff!!!!!

Our main computer is in time out so no pictures:-(

I'm getting along on the mystery shawl 2. and knit a cute little stole out of Lisa S. sock! in What a Melon. I love this colorway! It is hot pink and grass green on a white backround. If you grew up in Detroit you will understand what I mean by it is so Grosse pointe;-) Very Lily Pulitzer. I crocheted a net stitch backround then gave it a flouncy little edging. Hopefully someday I can post a picture with my dress.

I'm getting very itchy to start a million projects that I will never finish.

Book review- Grettings from Knit Cafe.
Im starting to guage books by how many patterns I would knit from them realistically. This is one that had a couple that I definitely would knit. There is the cutest baby blanket ever!!! Those of you who know me well know I would never knit a baby blanket but this is on my list of must do's. There is also a shoulder shawl that I am in love with-easy as pie pretty and have lots of stash to cover it!! There were also a couple of sweaters I would like but realistically Iprobably won't do and a pair of socks I probably will do. I am getting obsessed with knee socks. It seems a good alternative to other things with a jean skirt in the winter.

My sil's wedding is this weekend so you will not hear from me in two weeks for sure. My brother will be here tomorrow and we get to hang out for a few days ,hen wedding then my bil and sil and nephews will stay with us. I love them so much!! We will have so much fun:-) Then get readsy for school to start. Akkkk!!! This has been the weirdest fastest summer in history!
