Updates galore

No pictures from my girls weekend in Tulsa--one of us forgot to change the batteries in the camera and didn't discover this until they were going to take a picture....yep, that'd be forgetful ol' me..........It was nice to hang out with Chris and Lisa though. We really need to do that more often. I love going back to Tulsa, it really is a pretty city.

On the knitting side, I got a wild hair this afternoon while at the yarn shop and for some odd reason got the notion that I must knit myself a rectangular shawl. Out of really tiny lace weight yarn....WHAT IN THE HEL* WAS I THINKING?! I cast on multiples of nine for what seemed to be an hour--then lost count and had to start over. The animals learned several new word combinations today, none of which can be said within a mile radius of any church!! I am determined to stick this out but I can tell already I am going to be on this one for quite a while. Next time I try lace, I will look for something thicker than this yarn --it is thinner than some of the threads I sew with! I'm glad the pattern I picked from my stitch dictionary is not too complicated. I can see this is going to be a project that I do when there is really good lighting and I am the only one home! However, it will be gorgeous when I do get it done--it is a beautiful shade of red. I'll post pictures soon--once I get enough completed that will actually photograph....Don't wait up for me ya'll.....

You can do it! :) Lace does take concentration, but you can do it.
