Well, as pretty as.this attempt is turning out, I'm going to frog it. I only have the one skein. I'm over halfway through the skein and it is no where near long enough. Also, I would suggest using wool or something more "blockable" than acrylic. It really could use a good blocking to highlight the stitching.

I started over again on the slip slope scarf. Went up to an M hook. I swear this yarn is more of an Aran or heavy worsted. Then again, I've been working with sport or fingering mostly lately...
And yes, I did the second triangle the right direction. :

Anyhow, I love the new yarn color and hope I have enough, I only got the one skein. 2 wedges were 3"......

If you were local, I'd give you one. Jam jars and wide mouth quarts are gold, but we've got regular mouth quarts coming out our ears. ("They came with the house.")

Food for thought....
Me, I love a good hike or even just a stroll around the park. But really, being outside, on the trail all day just leaves me grinning.
The great outdoors might just be greater than you think. There are plenty of us who love to spend as many hours of the day outdoors as we can, and hiking is obviously quite healthy for the body,

One of the things I loved about working NYRF - the hiking around the area on the prep weekends before Faire opened...loved that area...

Ok, so I just had to back this kickstarter. Nominally to play with my son. But, no, I really just want to roll up a druid hedgehog for myself. LOL

Ok, people with sons, especially sons who are semi-reluctant or reluctant readers. I need book ideas. Boo-boy rejects anything and everything just about out of hand when I suggest something for him to read.
He muddled his way through about half of Spiderwick before admitting he didn't want to read it.
He loved the "Diary of a Minecraft Zombie" books I got him, but getting him to read more than 5 pages of Diary of a Wimpy Kid barely happened.
He loves Minecraft and the Marvel universe, but suggesting graphic novels is greeted with an unenthusiastic "nah". /sigh
He likes the Magic Tree House books, at least when I can get him to pick one up....

So, any ideas? Boo's 8, stubborn and very boy. But not into trucks and mud.....

I personally love the Redwall series. Boo wasn't too excited about it when I read him the first handful of pages.....

Read this. The whole article could/should be a pull out quote. But read this and keep trying to see life through other people's eyes. And tread everyone with "respect and humor". (Really, it's easier that way....)

Sadly, I was also Presbyterian...no Presby church in my town...so the kids either went to the local Catholic church, or the local Synagogue, and as I was never seen at either....I was referred to as a witch. sigh

...and this was about when HR Puffnstuff was out there as well...so..... shrugs

That moment you go "oh shit" and realize 2/3 of what you did today is wrong.....

I'm just going to frog this anyhow.... while pretty the thinner yarn and smaller hook make it too narrow and the yarn is too splitty.
Sorry about the run-on sentance......

Any how, the second wedge is backwards.... oops.

Yup. Thought about keeping it as a design feature and keep repeating the mistake, but I don't love it enough.

Awesomeness is watching the pre-launch of the next space station crew on NASA TV with your son who's just as giddy about it as you are.

So... I made a second rose. This time I rolled it the other way. I think I like this way better. It has to do with the way the crochet naturally curls. This one is for a friend at work who was admiring the first one.

Tip, when sewing up the back, make sure to "pick up" i.e. go through the chains of the starting chain. Helps keep it really secure and makes sure you don't lose any rounds.

Tonight was the last meeting of the 15/16 school year for my Girl Scouts. We still have a few activities in the first half of June.
I had three amazing ladies who took on huge leadership roles, two of whom really shouldn't have had to.
So, I came up with a Leader Survival Kit to give each of them. Missing from the picture are the glow sticks and I couldn't fit the ponchos into the bottles.


Leader Survival Kit
I hold in my hand a leader survival kit. Inside you will find things that will hopefully make being a leader easier.

Water Bottle - Not only to keep you hydrated, but because someone won’t remember one.
Bandaids - not only for scrapes and scratches, but to help us keep it together in general.
Whistle - Sometimes you just need to be the referee. Not to mention for safety reasons.
Sharpie - for labeling things for when, not if, they get lost. And yes, that includes the girls. And also for the permanent mark you leave on the girls’ lives.
Hand sanitizer - because we don’t just explore with our eyes.
Bouncy Ball - to keep the bounce in your step and to always have a game in your pocket.
Bubbles - a reminder to keep it light and to see the magic, enjoy the simple things and show us that each girl is unique and beautiful, but we must be careful, too.
Glow Stick - to provide a little light when it gets dark and scary.
Trail Mix - because we’ve got to be a little nuts to do this job we love so.
Hugs and Kisses - These are to celebrate the good times and awesome adventures, and for the times when we all just need a shoulder and an ear, both as a girl and a leader. And besides, who couldn’t use a little chocolate now and again?

I'm a Jill-of-many-trades, master of few. I dabble in what catches my interest with varying degrees of success. I'm geeky and nerdy and a bit of a bookworm and pop-culture clueless more often than not. I'm a wife and a mom and a daughter and sister and friend.
Bragging rights
I have an amazing son and husband and have managed to juggle that and a full time job!

We've been going here for years. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Everything is well maintained and kept as clean as an amusement park can be kept. It's a wonderful, downright cheap, experience. For the cost of taking 1 person to a "big name" amusement park I can take myself, my husband and our son. Our son doesn't ride a lot of rides, my hubby doesn't fit on a lot of rides (over 6'6" and hefty...) and it doesn't matter. We pay for the rides we want and enjoy the shade and the trees and hanging with the rest of the family. I hate having to pay to bring someone into an amusement park when they can't/don't ride the rides but want to be with the family. Oh, did I mention the awesome picnic facilities and the fact that you can bring whatever food you want in? And that parking and general admittance is free? It's a wonderful way to spend a day or an entire weekend.
