I'm knitting away on the prayer shawl for Cousin Margie. A couple of more repeats under my belt and I am enjoying it more and more. I've pretty much memorized the pattern, though I still use a lace book because it is the best row counter I've ever used! I'm now 30,336 stitches (prayers) into the shawl.
I'm going to have to stop soon -- just for a little while -- because I promised Norbert I would knit him a tea cozy by the middle of July. I figure it should only take me a week to knit, so I've got time, and you know by now that I work best under pressure! At least that's my story and I'm sticking with it!
Myfanwe and I have been empty-nesters while Norbert is away at camp. It has been fun to have some time alone together. And it's not just about gettin' frisky. We recently got digital cable, and we have this "On Demand" stuff...we can demand music. So some evenings while Myfanwe does a little work, I'll sit in the family room while she works and pull out my knitting and we'll spend the evening listening to classic country music or opera. I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a channel for just choral works, but I do now and then hear an opera chorus on the opera channel.
Sunday we are going up to visit Norbert at camp! It will be so great to see him! Amazing how much you can miss a kid, isn't it?
Other than that, life by us is pretty boring. I hope you are enjoying your summer.
