They are pretty quick and oh so cute and the yarn is a wool bamboo blend that is wonderful!
I am happy to have another project moving right along -- I was talking to friends who knit and they all think my 40 projects was a bit crazy -- hey about a week after pulling that number out of the air I agreed with that. But I will be so happy with any number now that I am over 20 for the year.

Here she is 2nd from the left!
This is just a small part of the whole band.
They did great and sounded really good.
I knitted while the other 5 bands in her category preformed.

Here is the beginning of the parade. Sadly for my youngest we were near the end of the route and the parade participants were out of candy.
Here is the marching band! When they were playing (right before this photo was taken) they sounded great!
Here are the Flag guys -- I believe they have a real name -- I just don't know it. There were about 5 floats and the football team was on 3 different flatbeds. It was the perfect evening for a parade. I have the whole weekend off (3 days!!). I plan to catch up around here and go to the big game tomorrow. I am told that these guys are called ROCKS boys-- I knew there was a special name.

What a fun beautiful fall day with friends. Everybody got a little something done on their projects and had a good time in the process.
I'm lucky to have a nice place to hang with friends and knit. I really like Tuesdays!

This plane did 3 or 4 fly overs getting a good view of the runners on the course.
I would have had band contest pictures from Saturday night for the other kid -- but lightening and a long rain delay kept me at home.
Jim arrives home tomorrow -- we are all ready for dad to get back. And I am going to be happy when the older 2 can drive and I do not have to be in 2 places at once.

My husband gone to help his mom deal with flooding in her home for a few days. I rarely act as a single parent so I have to step it up a bit.
For sanity purposes I am knitting when and where I can. Also reading my book clubs pick -- and that has kept me up too late.
Today is knitting with the gals day and I soooooo need it! My friends always make me laugh.
I hope to post more frequently....bare with me.
P.S. Check out this post on a blog I love reading -- they used my question in blog tour!

Okay, I will fess up - I can go months without buying yarn - then WHAM - I have to buy something. This one called my name. It is alpaca. Probably one of my favorite things to knit with. I love how alpaca feels in my hands.
I am going to turn this into a lovely scarf to gift to someone this holiday season.

I started the 2nd ball about 3 inches ago. I think it will take 3 balls -- maybe four to make it as long as I want it to be.
I got some lovely purplish alpaca yesterday -- just enough for a scarf - now to find a pattern. I will look here.
I also got a nice medium blue yarn to make a couple baby boy hats for friends - one coworker had a grandson born yesterday -- he will need a hat. The other little boy is not due til winter so I will make sure to get him a hat to come home from the hospital in.
So those projects should go quickly. I really want to get to 20 - that is halfway to my goal -- and way more than I ever thought possible.
Started back with our church book club last night - that was fun - we a have a good group of gals and I enjoy seeing them once a month.

We ate grilled goose for dinner last night. They had fun - the house was quiet while they were gone. Then they cooked dinner - what more can a gal want on her day off.
