Where has the month gone?!? Oh, my. To be honest, I've really been busy and there has been some knitting going on. My grandfather passed away on July 12 and that cause a bit of a whirlwind. It was not unexpected, but it's always a surprise when a loved one passes. He was 95 years old and was in remarkably good condition -- he just couldn't remember anything. Then I had company for a long weekend, which carried over into a week of county fair. And the transcripts are piling up. I've been to the doctor, eye doctor, dentist, and hairdresser. Vacation is a mere 5 (the F-I-V-E) days away! And we're off to the beach for a week. (oh, how it wish it was two.)
I acquired some lovely silk and sea cell yarn for an obscene amount of money, but it's REALLY nice. A clever little pattern came with it for a scarf and I'm working on it with the addition of clear glass beads. First time I've ever tried beads. I like it. It does slow things down a bit, but I think the end result will be worth it. As I get a larger chunk of the knitting done, I'll post a better picture so you can see the pattern.
