Holy Hell!

Has it been two weeks since I last posted? I suppose it has, but it sure doesn’t feel like it.

The weather has felt like hell tho.

During the heat blast 10 days ago, I was going to log on and leave a message that said “hot”; in small letters like that so you knew it was an effort to move, type, breathe, and even sit. Well that was truer than I realized. I was out in the 100F degree weather from 11-2 both Saturday and Sunday. That’s when DN#1 was playing in the town’s little league playoffs. It was so brutally hot. I even drank Gatorade (which is so gross tasting to me).

So he won his games on Sat and Sun and then his team moved onto the next game on Tuesday (cooler temps – like 90) and they won that one too. Thursday night (in the 90s again) was the big game to decide which two teams went on to the championship.

This caused a dilemma. Jen, Bezzie and I had been planning on meeting up at Anglefire Studios for their WWKIP day. But if DN#1’s team went onto the championship, it was going to be played on Saturday. I let Jen and Bezzie know of the possible conflict and teased them about knitting at the game and they both said “Tell us where and when and we’re there.” I love them for that!

They lost Thursday night. It was a heartbreaker too because the ump sucked. Even the field ump (ref?) agreed that he was pretty bad, so you know it wasn’t just us parents and aunt who thought so.

WWKIP day was on! Bezzie even told Karen from Cooknknit where to meet us. She brought her son and Chunky and Karen’s kiddo played non stop for a good three hours. At first we thought we were going to be the only knitters there, but a few more ladies showed up and set up their chairs and tables (brilliant!) or sat on the floor or the steps of the gazebo by the LYS.

I finished the baby sweater but I needed a bit of knitterly opinion and moral support before I crossed the finish line. Then I started a Hat for Alex and finished that after I got home. Pictures of them and of another FO tomorrow when I have a minute to take pictures of them.

Clockwise from bottom left: Bezzie, Karen and two lovely ladies whose names I can't remember for the life of me, and Jen who is standing.

The boys practicing the next Xtreme Sport of Gazebo Scootering.

The rest of the knitting ladies!

Ok, so I showed Chunky that picture and he said "Oh yeah! I remember that, I really had to go to the bathroom at that time!" What a nut.

Thanks for inviting me, I had a great time!!!
