But first, here is why the knitting/blogging is slow this month --
Two graduations. The first, my firstborn graduating from eighth grade--
Here she is with two classmates (one of whom is her BFF Karley) at the pre-graduation brunch. Each graduate was given a very nice silver cross and a cute cookie that looked just like themselves!
After the ceremony we lunched and gifted the new highschool bound teenager-
That was Saturday. Today was Grace's turn. My kindergartener graduated. My little baby girl is almost 6 and in first grade. Yikes.
It is almost impossible not to tear up in the presence of all this cuteness--
Grace is the one in blue in the front row. When they sat down Grace flashed the entire congregation. I'm so proud.
Grace and Brianna -- who happens to be Emily's BFF's sister.
In Knitting news, (you thought I forgot, didn't you?) the socks for May were finished after graduation today, but before dance class.
These were my Magic Loop socks. Love the loop. Used Tofutsies, the same kind of yarn tried once before, but abandoned after they pooled incredibly and horribly. I gave it another shot, and the first socks looks very nice, doesn't it?
The second sock started going all crazy like and looks more like tiger stripes or something. Not good. I have two more balls of this yarn and I'm not so excited about it. I would have to say they are the least exciting and satisfying socks I have knit. The yarn feels good, if that is any consolation.
This ball of yarn was originally meant for Project Spectrum several months ago. I get distracted easily.
Next month (three hours from now) the colors turn to black, red, and metallic. Not my colors, more Nolamom's cup o'tea. I will try to make a token project to show I can get with the program.
Tomorrow is also the last day of school. Hooray! Only "non-graduating" Alex has to go to school tomorrow. He's so excited.
Hooray for summer!
