Trying To Knit Lace

I went to Eleganza's Sunday Sojourn, Lace scarf. I am going to get this if it is the last thing I do. It is one pattern I need no distraction to be able to do. I have recast on 4 times and finally knit one row. My family was making so much noise I had to stop. I hope to get more knitting done tomorrow since I have to take the phones for work. It won't be the lace scarf though. The weather is really hot and muggy but should change by Tuesday. I can't wait for fall, I hate this hot weather. September 10, 2008 can't get here soon enough we are going to Ocean City for some really relaxing time together, Darby and I.

A Gorgeous Day

It was beautiful today, a taste of fall. I wish the rest of the summer could be like this. I have given up on knitting two socks on one circular, magic loop, but I am going to try knitting socks on 2 circulars. I have started a new cardigan and I think I am going to start on a pullover using Calmer by Rowan. Knitting is so relaxing and I can't keep my hands off the needles. We are driving to Frostburg, MD on Friday and I plan to take my knitting. We have a wedding in October in Raleigh NC, some nice long hours to knit.

Neil Diamond

I know this has nothing to do with knitting, but we saw Neil Diamond last night at the Verizon Center and he rocks. Two hours of non-stop music and entertainment. Neil was either singing or talking all of those two hours. Pretty Amazing Grace is his latest and it is a beautiful song. He never disappoints and every time we see him it is different. Some of the same songs but with a new twist. His band is fantastic and the percussionist is a real hoot.

I am going to pitch and stitch with the Frederick Keys, can't wait.

Why Does It Take so Long?

Why does it take so long to put the finishing touches on a project? I am doing the second armhole and have the neck edging left. Will I ever get it done? It is beautiful today. A nice breeze and not so hot. I am going to start on my cardigan and maybe a scarf for my daughter. The socks are still there, I just haven't worked on them lately.
