There has been knitting going on. First a finished pair of ankle socks. Just plain toe-up socks. I got this yarn from a swap and it is OnLine sock y
arn. Next is a scarf that I've been working on. I'm using a linen stitch and alpaca yarn purchased at YDK. I'm also working on a sweater called the Sidelines Top. I'm using more yarn that was purchased at Yellow Dog Knitting here in Eau Claire. It's Garn Studio Merino. Well, I can't seem to get this picture uploaded, so I'll post a picture later.

I haven't been spinning at all. :( It's busy with the kids being home and all the stuff that goes along with three kids. We have been enjoying the pool especially these past few days!!

The biggest news is that Grant got his driver's license today!!!!! It's exciting and scary all at the same time. He drove himself to work today. I did call just to make sure he got there okay. It is so strange. All these steps that lead to my kids independence is hard on this mama!!!

Maggie was in Oklahoma last week with a friend and her parents. They sold t-shirts at a festival called Country Fever. She took two helicopter rides!!! I'm glad I didn't know anything about that until it was over. I missed her so much. Again, just another stepping stone to her independence.

Patrick has been playing a lot of video games and swimming. Summer band starts tomorrow but I forgot to take his saxophone in to get a key fixed, so he won't start until next week. I was a bit preoccupied with getting Grant ready for that driving test. Whew, I can cross that off my list.

I'm off to get some rest. The boys are going to the midnight premier of the new Transformers movie and I'll have to pick them up around 2:30 a.m. Grant can't drive after midnight. He has this probationary period for nine months with this license. He can only have one other person in the car besides family members and can't drive after midnight. I think these are good things!!

Happy knitting!!
