Kindergarten and Hurricane Harvey

I was your last week?  Mine was fine...Hurricane Harvey rolled in and dumped some rain and blew things around.....My area was hardly affected (just a little rain and some strong wind), but I know that many other areas have been hit hard.  Houston is still flooding....and Darlene's son, Casey, is a Houston Firefighter (Houston probably has the most flooding...and I think the city has to open two damns/reservoirs) and he has been working since the storm started and is on a boat doing rescues with no end in sight (I know he must be exhausted)……so we are praying for all the first responders and all affected by the Hurricane!

My sister does have a house in Port Aransas...and thankfully it is still standing.  My brother in law will go this week to assess any damage!

Staying in almost all weekend made for lots of knitting time.

I finished my aunt's slippers/socks....yeah!  I hope she loves them!  I got My BIG 4 done!  Yeah!!!

During the week I made a shawl for Darlene's niece, Cynthia.  Darlene sent a 'care package' to Cynthia and one of the items she sent her was the Decemberist Darlene made back in April.....well, Cynthia loved it.....she loved it so much that she said that she wants one in every color....I already had the same yarn in black and red....and Darlene has ordered pink and white yarn.  I have made a black one and Darlene is making her a red one.....we will also make two more once the pink and white yarn get here.  Oh, and the one Darlene already sent Cynthia looks fabulous on her!

Here is the black one I made...I do not have a picture of it blocked because I was my regular lazy self and sent it home with Darlene for her to block.....LOL!

I also made a hat for Paige....she asked for this hat a while ago and I got the yarn and it was time to make it.....I really like the was a quick knit!

I started a couple of things too...I guess I felt the need to start stuff as I finished stuff...LOL!  I started the cowl for Paige:

and a hat for Jaime.....I told Jaime I would have a hat done for him before he goes on his annual fall motorcycle ride with the I better get this done!

I wound all my yarn for the What The Fade MKAL that starts this coming Thursday (Paige's Birthday) I am ready!

I have a couple of stash enhancements.....I got a new leather.  Darlene got one like this (hers is brown) and I had to get one.....I love it!

Paige also got me some new PJ's.  My friend, Melissa, sent me a picture of a PJ top she was getting, and I told Paige about it and Paige got me one...she said it was the last one in my size :)

And for the biggest news....Today is Antonio's First Day of Kindergarten.....I can't believe it (I took a picture of my kids in front of this tree every first day of school they the tree is special)!

I'm pretty sure his favorite subject will be art....this is what he drew over the weekend:

My cousin's daughter-in-law got a new puppy and I just had to share this picture.

That is all I have......Have a great week everyone!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
