Finally, a decent day!

This spring has shown us pretty horrendous weather. Today, May 31, is really a nice day-- around 70 and sunny!
I finally finished my sweater, Silverlake Shirt pattern from Oat Couture. I like it. Very simple pattern. Used 8 balls of RYC Soft Tweed in Thistle. Now I am starting a surprise for my oldest daughter: a beaded cami in turquoise cotton........ of course there are also various other things going on...... little son had a soccer game at 9:00 am today, a baseball game at 10:30, and baseball pictures at 1:00! So we ran around all is so fun!! Now I am supposed to be cleaning and organizing but the computer has turned into a black hole where I disappear in ravelry!! Ha ha ha I guess I'll have to KNIT a cover for it and hide it, or an least make it harder to get to!!! A computer Cozy!!!!!! ;) Well, see you later!

What Age Do You Act?

You Act Like You Are 31 Years Old

You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

You're responsible, wise, and have enough experience to understand a lot of the world.

You're at the point in your life where you understand yourself pretty well.

You are figuring out what you want... and how to get it!

a couple of things

Well, I clearly have not been posting things I've been knitting on this blog, but I finally have done so on ravelry. The latest things are these two baby items: a bib with a vintage button and a berry baby hat. Fun to knit!

Time Flies!

Oh, geez, can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything. I will post more soon. Been hanging out at ravelry. I'm MariaE there. So, lots happening, the weather here has been simply atrocious, though. Disheartening..... but yesterday and today were nice days! School is almost out for our youngest, baseball season and spring soccer has started, and DH is coaching soccer. School is out for two college kids. Older son got an internship at Purdue for the summer and his first day was yesterday. Older daughter will be coming home soon!! Dogs are fine, enjoying our visits to the dog park and running around. Frankie is, well, just being a cat I guess. He is so lovey-dovey!!
