One more White House photo, for clarification:

For Dad, yes, there's Romero, behind the trophy. And Utley behind him. And Coste and Lopes still do not have ties on.

Now, in knitting news - I've started a Lady Eleanor Stole. We're doing this project as the September/October Knit-Along at the Tangled Web this fall and we need to have a sample. I thought maybe there was something complicated about it, but it's basically just a big honking entrelac rectangle. Entrelac is fun - it's mindless once you get going, but something is always going on. I also taught myself to knit backwards so I don't have to keep turning it around after every 8 stitches. And that is a very useful skill to acquire! Here it is, in its unblocked baggy glory:

I'm using some Noro Silk Garden that I bought up in New York. I definitely do not love how it is pooling in big splotches of green. I love this colorway of Silk Garden - black, charcoal grey, green and blue. But I'm not going to do anything about the pooling - down that road lies Crazy Town, and I'm not going there..

I finished my February Lady Sweater, wore it to work, felt eh about it and gave it to my friend and co-worker Carole after she asked to try it on for size. She looked great in it, so why not? Look at her!! It's perfect on her!


American Idol finale tonight! I would have voted for Kris but I couldn't get through and then I fell asleep. I hope he doesn't lose by 5 votes - that would be my fault.*

*he won - the other ONE HUNDRED MILLION people who voted got me off the hook.

Glad to see J.C. got invited. He was certainly a big part of the world champions. And, man, do they need him soon, June 3 or whenever. (Although they are in first place, aren't they?)

Divine One,

How lovely to have the Phillies at the White House. Wow, dreams can come true.

The Fall Knit Along seems like another good one - since I am close to finishing the ones from years past, I will think about starting another one.

XOXO
