Hi!  It is Thursday and I am very excited!  I finished my Lintilla shawl yesterday.  I have a friend that has a blog and she posts her finished items on Friday's and calls it FO Friday...but I just could not wait to show you all!  This is my Project One for Camp Loopy.  I love this pattern so much, I am thinking of making another one!

Now....what to work on while I wait for Camp Loopy Project Two to start?  I have so many things OTN that I have several items to choose from.  I decided to work on some squares for a blanket (from the Building Blocks book by Michelle Hunter).  I am making 3 different afghan blankets, and I know it will take me a long time to make them all, but I thought doing one square at a time to build one panel at a time feels satisfying and not is a picture of two panels.  The blue one has 1 1/2 quares done, and the persimmon one has barely 1/2 of the square done (the blue yarn is a little thicker than the persimmon, but they will be the same blanket pattern).

Oh, and as promised, here is the picture of the Sweet Georgia yarn I got with the Shattered Sun Shawl pattern, I have been telling myself I cannot start till I finish some other far it is working, but I am not sure for how long.

On a much cuter note, my grandson had to go to the allergist yesterday.  He has allergies, but they are not too bad.  For now we are going to switch his formula to a soy based formula. Here is a picture of him at the doctor's office playing with a big catepillar until the lady walked in to stick him in the back (he is only 7 1/2 months).

And a picture of him smiling and playing with his mom's keys....sorry it is dark, by daughter took this picture.  I think it is worth sharing:

Lat but not least, here is a picture of Jaime and I at Coyote Ugly on 6th Street in Austin last weekend for the ROT Rally.  That is my new shirt from some friends, it combines a couple of my favorite things.....Longhorns and Harley (there is a Harley Emblem in the middle of the Longhorn)....Now, if I could just find a shirt with Longhorns, Harleys and Yarn!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!


  1. You're Lintilla is beautiful! Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

    My husband went to ROT once. I think I was sick. It was an eye-opener for him! ha ha

  2. Thanks Jamye! ROT is an eye opener....This year we just went to 6th street to mingle with a couple of friends. It is always nice to get away!
