Crochet on the Road

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I blogged. What's been happening?

Well, I have two teens here and me sharing the same computer (yeah, mine is down, again) and with school out for the summer, that creates some logistics problems.

My oldest graduated High School on May 26th... I'm still trying to make it real. The beautiful baby, the terrific toddler, the graceful ballerina, allll grown up.

We are supposed to leave tomorrow to go to the university she's planning to attend to start orientation (the university messed up their scheduling and she needs to attend two different orientations!!.. argh) and I haven't started packing yet!! Something tells me I'm not too enthusiastic about this move.

I had made a gorgeous trellis shawl to wear for graduation, but then it was too hot to use it. oh well. it's put aside for future use.

On the crochet front, I've made 3 seraphina shawls (teacher gifts, no time for pics) and a hooded cape (just for the fun of it, and will make a pic to upload later). I'm in the process of making a wrap from one of last year's Crochet! magazine patterns.. it's supposed to be out of Paton's Grace, but while lovely, it's generally too rich for my blood, so I'm using Omega Sinfonia. Only problem is that I thought I bought enough, but now I find I need 2 or 3 more skeins. ouch. Oh well.. this happens to me often enough that I should know better by now.. to buy double the amount I think I'll need.. LOL.

Now I have to figure out what to take for crochet on the road and while in hotel room. I'm thinking more serafina shawls.. easy pattern and easy to find yarn that works.. but might I get bored with it?

Off to wash more clothes. Wouldn't it be wonderful if going nekkid was more comfy? Sure would cut down on the clothing budget. :) I was going to postulate that it would also cut down on water use, but maybe we would wash MORE if we were more nekkid.... hmmmmm

You post one of the funniest posts I have read and ages and then you disappear???? Then you have the nerve to say you've done three seraphina's and a hooded cape and don't include pictures??????
