A Fabulous Hat Model and Getting To Know The Neighbors
...his mum finally got the money shot and emailed it to me today! Isn't he the cutest ever? That is a 'Grade A Wisconsin Cheese Eating Grin' there if I ever saw one! You Da Man, Cole!Today was absolutely beautiful out and my apartment complex had a pot luck/bar-b-que, meet and greet at lunch time:
We all brought out our dogs, dishes to pass, and lawn chairs and got to know each other. Nice folks, each and every one. Dog people are my kinda people! At one point, someone spilled beer on Ben so he smells a little like a brewery now, but he was more than happy to lick it all off. I only stayed for a couple of hours because I wanted to go to Last Saturday Knitting at 2PM. When I came back at 4PM they were still out there so I went out for a bit longer but then came in to feed/walk Ben, make some phone calls and catch on on computer stuff. It is now 7:30 and I can hear them just breaking it up and carrying their stuff in now! Seven and a half hours! Now THAT's a potluck!
Saturday afternoon knitting was a hoot as usual. Cindy, Elizabeth, Jen, Brenda, Dale Harriet and Linda were all there and Jen brought Bug and Bean with her. What a couple of cuties and smart too! Entertaining all the way around...so much so that I screwed up the new cable hat I'm working on. Thank goodness it was an easy fix...but still...when am I going to learn that I can't handle anything other than a stockinette sock leg during knitting socials? Round and round and round...that's it!
I've been threatening to do it for a while, but tomorrow I'm actually going to bust Mabel out, lube her up and spin some. It's laundry day so there'll be lots of waiting around between cycles. It's going to be cooler too, supposedly, so the roving will be easier to handle. I haven't spun since June so I'll have to learn all over again! Wish me luck!
