Dish Rag Tag

I am the next one up for DRT! My needles and I am ready - just waiting for Roxann to tag me.  It has been a busy week, Harold has been on vacation and we have gotten lots done and done lots.  Off to go out to lunch, wish he was home everyday.

First Shawl

I have never done any lace knitting before but I decided to take the leap and give it a try. The shawl is called Multnomah and I found it on Ravelry. I am knitting it with Schaefer Yarn Nichole in colorway Rainy Day.

I received this yarn at The Loopy Ewe Retreat in 2009 and saved it for something special.  So far it is going pretty good and I am taking it slow  using markers for the center spine trying to keep it straight. I would probably be farther along but life keeps getting in the way.

Revenge of Dish Rag Tag is officially underway and our box is on the move to the second person so I am anxiously waiting for my turn. I think I am fifth in line. Oh, we finally agreed on a team name - Purl Power.

School is on the wind down with 3 weeks left before I transfer to another school so I am studying like crazy and taking short knitting breaks.  I will be so glad to start my new degree major and transfer to the  new school (more details in a later post). And I will have a month break inbetween, I just have to find something fun to do!

I will leave you with a picture of two of my favorite guys. Benton and Bryson (Son and Grandson) at the KC Chiefs stadium for a rally and preview of the new stadium - they thought it was awesome :)

Aren't they handsome?

Been a long time...

Boy it has been a long time since I have been on here! Lots has gone on and lots is going on. Still going to school and I am changing majors after this term. Bryson will be 3 in November and Chloe turned 1 and is growing like a weed (she is so tall).

It is that time again for Dish Tag Rag aka DRT. Yep, I am doing it again, what do they say third times the charm, this year I am on Team 9. Hopefully we will have a name soon!

I am going to try to get some pictures up but for now here is Bryson. All he wants is to grow up so he can be a firefighter. We hear that over and over day after day :)

Haven't done much knitting, studying is taking up most of my time. That is going to change though because I went to Ravelry the other day (I hadn't been there in ages) and I found lots of goodies to knit. So now I need to go stash diving and see what I come up with it. I haven't gone through all my fiber in a long time and I love petting all of it, if I don't find something just right there then I will have to force myself to go yarn shopping. Like I would hate that!
