Finally took a progress picture of the Leaf Lace shawl, blog contest winnings (thanks Chris) and a FO needlepoint pillow.  Sat down here to upload them and discovered the adapter for the card adapter is missing.  Hmmm…Kevin did you drop it this weekend in Buffalo?

I was plugging along on the Leaf Lace thinking the pattern said 650 yards for the small laceweight and I have a TON of yarn left.  Well, a look at the ballband tells me I have 800 yards.  So I need to find a less than happy medium between 650 and 1175.  And what to do with the glorious Fleece Artist Baby Kid Mohair from Chris.  Did she know it matches my bedroom perfectly?  I am very excited to play with it.

Life still remains completely insane.  We got the call from school the other day that Cameron is reading way below grade level.  They are going to give him 1:1 40 minutes a day 3 times a week with the Wilson teacher.  Owen.  He is flying through sight words.  He is learning–receptively–3 sight words a week.  Expressively it’s not as good but it’s autism.  He’s not much of a talker.  Gracie tried out for the school play.  She was certain she bombed but was called back.  This time she says she bombed the call back.  She’s very upset.  And oh so hormonal!

I tried to make a button for those washing a sweater for Rhinebeck but was failing miserable.  I’ll see if I can get my IT guy to help but if anyone is able.  Please. 

Well, I suppose I should get Cam packed up for school and me packed up for Granny’s.  Tomorrow is the last day of the sale.

    I hope you find the adaptor. I’d love to see pictures of your Leaf Lace Shawl.

    I guess I am psychic, or I wish I was! Then I could know where all the good yarn sales are! Glad it goes well with your room. If you find you need another skein I have another. I was planning to make a shawl with some Rio added in, but that may not be until the year 2009!

  3. Don’t you just wish you could pull up Gracie’s hormones and place them on a shelf until she gets through these next few years? Poor kid….

    Avery’s pretty hormonal these days too but I think it effects boys less noticably.

    Ian’s had two bathroom accidents this week the minute he gets out of school (Ian never has accidents any more). It seems he won’t ask to go to the bathroom. It’s always something…

    Nothing is harder than being a teenage grrl (except maybe being the mother of a teenage grrl). Knit the shawl until you think it’s big enough to fit how you want and then stop. You can always make smaller gift items from any of the left over yarn.

    The whole back-to-school scene sounds insane! I hope you’re taking some time for you. *hugs*

    Wilson is a great program (my sister is a reading specialist). Looking forward to seeing the shawl.
