Where did summer go?

Well another Labor Day weekend is over. I hope your weekend went well. Mine was very laid back (just the way I like). Hubby made the chicken on the grill, or, at least it started out that way. We ran out of gas about half way through and I had to finish it in the oven. It was yummy just the same.

The boy and the girl spent labor day with friends who where having parties. I guess that's what happens when they get older. I think raising kids is much like the sesons. This point in my life it feels much like summer turning into fall. In just a little while the kids will be gone. I can see them blooming and growing while the colors in my life are turning richer. I know it's supposed to be this way but I don't have to like it.Anyway, enough rambing...

I have been working on the beast most of the day today. It has rained and been on the chilly side all day. It's been nice to work on it, I cover myself up with it as I knit. I may have a small problem with it...I checked my stash and it seems I may have estimated wrong when I bought my yarn. I may be short. I will let you know what happens.

A few weeks ago I mentioned a square I was making that was to be sewwn into a blanket for a sick friend. Well, the blanket is finished. Julie, (the woman who put it all together) sent me the following picture to share with you. Carol got it in the mail yesterday. I think everyone did a wonderful job. Thank you Julie for doing all the grunt work. The members of the "Ample Knitters List" are just an awsome group of people. I am very proud to be a part of their group.

Carol's Afghan

I have not been able to figure out this camera yet. I am still working on it. I will get this $#^$&* thing yet. :)
