Please send some rain!

 Hey Guys.....how are ya'll?  I hope all is well with you.  I'm doing okay here in SUPER HOT (and dry) Texas.  Today we have the slightest chance of rain from all the activity in the golf and I am trying to do as many rain dances as possible....LOL!  Please send some rain (I know poor California needs a break from it).

ETA......a HUGE Thank You!  Just a couple of hours after posting this blog.....I got some rain....no, it is not nearly enough, but I am still thankful (no laughing at my super brownish goldish grass)!!

So, what have I been up to?  Well, first, I got my August Blanket Yarns.....

I got a new cone winder (my Erlbacher Speedster CSM prefers yarn from a cone over a cake).....it is called the Sunfire 2.0 and I love it....I actually got it a while ago, but once I started using it, it became clear that the post office had broken some parts in transit...so I had to send back and here is my new operational one :)

I worked on my Sunshine Coast Sweater.....

Then I finished Shyla's Mae

I had approx 111 yards left of yarn so I made her a shortened version of the Dotty Beanie.  I did not do 2 of the 10 repeats, and once I did like 2 decreases, I had to do all the decreases at once (without the patterned row in between) because I was going to run out of yarn....but I think it will still be wearable.

Now for my challenge of the year......I got a text from my sister saying that my niece found a cardigan on Pinterest that she really likes and wants to know if I can make for her like as a Christmas/Birthday present.

This is all I have to go by

so I turned it around

and I found the perfect color yarn from Euphoria Knits in DK Rapture

I have placed a special order and now I wait on the yarn.  I think I will have to knit this from the bottom up......any thoughts, advice or have you seen the perfect pattern out there?  I am pretty sure the cardigan was purchased at Target.

Lastly, my guest bathroom has not had a sink/vanity for over a year (since I got the floors done)....and my contractor recently found this gorgeous sink/vanity and brought it to my house....hopefully he can install it in the next couple of weeks (I have a faucet and accessories on order).

Well, that is all I have.  I hope you have a great week....and while I claim to be the spreadsheet queen....there is no spreadsheet I can do for this next mathematical equation...LOL!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
