This 'n' that
Last Sunday, we went sailing on SF bay on a friend's boat. It was gorgeous. Pics soon!
Monday, my book was featured on the Knitting Daily blog! I had a great time being interviewed by Sandi Wiseheart. She is awesome!
I had a knitter's nightmare last night. I dreamed that I had almost finished a stole (I'm pretty sure it was the Kimono Shawl from Cheryl Oberle's Folk Shawls out of Royale Hare hard twist sock yarn). When I looked down and stretched it out a little to see the lace pattern, I found all sorts of moth holes in it. It was awful! Thankfully, I woke up soon after.
This is a poem my 9 year old son wrote and read for his swim team's potluck and talent night. He wrote it by himself; I am blown away by him!
The 50 Free
The whistle sounds.
Up on the block I hop,
the clock going tick-tock.
The starter says “Take you mark.”
and the buzzer goes off – “BEEP!"
I bound off the block
like a mad man can.
The splash and dash
cut a gash
of whitewater through the pool.
All throughout the valiant duel
the water so cool.
A trail of whitewater as long as a snake’s tail
slashes through the pool.
He did a great job reading it too!
