Whew.........it's done and it fits!! Whoo~hoo! After working on this vest, I have come to the conclusion that I really do not care to work with scratchy wool very much. I worked my way thru the black abbey yarn vest a year or so ago and now this one. Both yarns were ones that I found to be hard on my hands although I do like the end products that the yarns produced. I just didn't enjoy the process very much.
Ashley's vest is soaking in some Eucalan as I type, so perhaps tomorrow I will have some modeling pictures. Actually the pattern once I got in the groove was a nice pattern to knit.
A Weekend of Dogs..........
First on tap was a dog show held up here in the mountains. The weather was HOT, HOT, HOT! Go figure. It has been a very moderate summer here temperature wise, but on Saturday, it was 90 plus degrees and just as humid. Not really much fun for people or dogs...........
Little Skyy went Winners Bitch, Best of Opposite Sex and Best Puppy in Breed. Her bigger sister Cleo went Reserve Winners Bitch, so all in all, the trip to the show was well worth a few hours in those hot temps!
And Wedding Anniversaries......
My parents didn't want a big gala event, but rather a smaller family gathering, so we had a small party at a lovely restaurant in Newburyport. The food was fabulous and it was good to see relatives that I do not see very often.
My oldest daughter put together such a touching DVD covering the last 50 years of our lives together. Time does have a way of flying by, doesn't it?
I think my parents really enjoyed their day, which made it extra special for us.
(Yikes.........I look at this picture of my dad and yep......it's the same face that I see in the mirror every morning!)
I hope your weekend was a fun one too!
