Don't fall off your chair

I know.  It's knitting -- something no one has seen on this knitting blog in quite some time.  This is Mack's birthday sweater, which was actually due on Wednesday, but anyone can see that there's a ways to go.  It doesn't help with the timing that I'm just sort of making it up and winging it as I go along.  I forgot about the color knitting-in-the-round thing, so I'm knitting back and forth through this part.  I'll join it up again immediately after the truck part and attach the sleeves.  There'll be a little seam to sew right under the arm.  It should work.  I hope.  The black band goes around the entire body for a little continuity.  I think that's what I'm after...

Everyone I know with has an event planned for this summer has it planned for this day.  There's a baby shower, a birthday party, a graduation party, and a wedding.  Someone suggested yesterday that I could just drive by and throw presents and cards out the window -- it would save my having to find something to wear.  I'll tell ya, though, timing is very tight and there are no guarantees -- except the wedding.  That one's been on the calendar for quite a while -- our old neighbor and Ali's best playmate all through grade school.  Oh, just to make it a little more interesting, Maddy is taking her ACT today, too.  After this weekend, my dance card is pretty open.  Wanna dance?

The truck is looking very nice! The drive-by event description really gave me a funny visual. Have a fun day where ever you go!

Yes, I wanna dance. Foxfire Gardens in Marshfield, July 11, 12 or 13?

I'd say yes to the dance, but I'm so bone tired from all the heavy gardening I've done today, I have all I can do to keep my head up at the moment. ....:)

Cha-cha-cha or quick step?

It's adorable and so creative. It will definitely be adored and worn until it wears out.
