I’ve been out of town for a week, but am now back in Colorado. We all went to Knitting Daughter’s college graduation in Indiana last weekend! Here’s a photo of her being congratulated by her brother (aka: Web Guy). I cannot believe how quickly those four years flew by. It seems like I was just talking about her going off to school and now she has diploma in hand.
She’s back here in Colorado with us for a little bit, while she job hunts for something in her field (marketing and media communications). I have a long list of projects for her at Loopy in the meantime.
We drove her car down to St. Louis after graduation and spent a couple of days there, seeing friends. I had lunch with the St. Louis Elves. It was so great to see all of them. I miss them! Here’s a picture of Susan (my St. Louis Office Manager) with her cute grandson Carter. Susan gets to watch him and his sister Lulu 3 days a week and is loving the time with them.
After a couple of days in St. Louis, we headed west to Colorado. We were waylaid in Lawrence, Kansas by a faulty hose that leaked all of the coolant out of the engine area, causing overheating. We were a day late getting home, but everything ran smoothly after we had that
dumb hose replaced.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Sunday is Starting Day for Project One of Camp Loopy! I can’t wait to work on my new Color Affection Shawl. I’ll show you the first one I finished, next week. I have to wash and block it. We’ll be closed on Monday for Memorial Day, but we’ll have a regular Monday Update for you, so watch for it!
Are there more great three color shawl patterns out there? I thought that picking two color shawls was fun, but three is even better.
