well, i am just about done with the ribbing on the eyelet cardi and then i will attempt the eyelet pattern. i have already had a test run of the pattern to make sure i could do it and it was a lot easier than i thought it would be. i’m getting kind of excited about it actually. i think it will knit up rather nicely. i really want to get it done for my Lovebug so she can wear it for the rest of the season. the way it looks now i should have plenty of time. we are at a ‘balmy’ 7 degrees now. heat wave!! i’m so glad it’s above 0! i will be even more tickled when it stays around 32 consistantly. i’m so thankful we have a fireplace!
oh, and i’m still plugging away at those socks when i can….

So, I’ve always been intrigued by the 4H club and was always wanting to join but never really had the time or money to add one…more…thing! Some friends joined awhile back and that sparked my interest again. Then even more recently ( last week actually) we decided to jump in and join! We’ve been to one meeting and one workshop and it’s been a lot of fun. Love is really excited about learning more about all sorts of things, but we are starting with horses and photography and then we’re adding a communications curriculum as well. I think it will prove to be very interesting indeed! I just got the books and I’m looking forward to going through them w/Kayla. She does have a lot of other things she’s working on (Math is a big challenge for her right now), but she says she wants to give it a go.
Sooooooooo, here we go!!!
