Here is my progress for the UFO challenge that I was working on this weekend.
I'm not done. Still 100 stitches on the needles. That's 200 rows to you and me. Good news is that since Friday I've completed 70 rows. The end is near and it might be this week.

Good thing too because I'm gettin kind of antsy. I started this last August. I've worked on it monogamously for the last 2 months. Time for the blocking.






So I started thinking about other things. This yarn is sportweight from Rip Rap Meadows. I got it in Rhinebeck last year. I don't have enough to do the Starmore sweater I was trying it out for but you never know what might jump in my bag this year.

Speaking of Rhinebeck I'm going with Kelle, Sara my niece, and Betty . We are staying at the Holiday Inn in beautiful Kingston. It's only about 10 minutes form the fairgrounds. We will be holding a "knit out" Friday and Saturday night from about 7 PM in the courtyard. The courtyard is indoors and very nice. We want everyone to come and join us so bring your knitting or your spinning and join us.
The restaurant in the hotel is good if they haven't changed from last year so check it out if you need dinner. Let me know if you need help finding the place.



This is my mom's house. I'm putting this picture here because I have a younger sister who likes to suck up to the mother. She has yet to post a picture of her house though and so I'm beating her to it.
If anybody is interested in owning a B&B it happens to be for sale right now. It's great but my parents have been doing it since 1985 and they're ready to move on.
I'm not buying it because I don't change my own sheets often enough let alone clean 9 bathrooms when I have trouble keeping up with the ones I've got.
Here's dinner. It was the best pizza I've made to date. This particular one has onions. There was one with pepperoni, one with pepperoni, onions and mushrooms. Delicious.

On that note I'd better be off to bed before I need a snack.

Weight Watchers Weigh In tomorrow.

Mentioning the pizza would be sufficient. The picture was just mean. I had a low-sodium V8 and grapes. I want a big bowl of melty cheese and sticky buns.

The Buns would be better--and your younger sister does not have to try--she is the FAVORITE--but you can keep lying to yourself!!
