Ouch...Brads poor truck

Guess what happend while I was out knitting. Good news... no one was in the truck or hurt, bad news.... is it was a DUI hit and run, good news is that the CHP found the vehicle that hit our truck and the best news is that he was insured! Now its the insurance waiting game. But I had a great weekend with my daughter and sister on an overnight knit-a-thon!

New scarf in the works!

This is a scarf I'm working on, my sweet sis got me the yarn (Vegas-Sirdar) for an Easter gift. I only have to finish the left side of my sweater vest and I will be done, oh yea I guess I need a collar for it also! I will post a pic of it ASAP, but first the flowers need to go in the ground, the tile in my bathroom I put up needs grouting, etc. etc.
Double click on the pic to really appreciate the beautiful yarn!

Busy weekend

So I traveled to the bay area this weekend with my sweet daughter Jenny to a baby shower. Oh my gosh was it nice. It was at a country club (the invite asked all to please observe their no denim policy) Ohh Laa Laaa not exactly what I am used to at a shower. A sit down luncheon, turkey crepes, wonderful salad, and a lovely apple tart dessert ( I went for the food) My daughter Jenny is on the far right, Laura in the middle(the pregnant friend) and Jenny's best friend Jen on the left. After the shower(it was almost 4 hours long) we drove back to my daughters house and Jenny,myself and the helper cats all put together some new side tables Jenny had purchased. we had so much fun together! Oh and Laura loved the cute hat I knitted her!
