It's been a revolving door here this summer and Saturday my niece Sarah and nephew Craig arrived from the Bradenton/Sarasota area. We have had a great time eating BBQ and hamburgers. They are both so beautiful and handsome - today they make a trip to Tallahassee to visit friends plus go shopping. We end the day by going out with friends for supper.

As for my sampler shawl from Folk Shawls, I am making progress - and I anticipate being done by the end of this weekend - how's that for being the eternal optimist? I am ready to see completion of this so I can move on to some other projects. I have friends whose children are having babies, and something else needs to get on the needles! I am perusing baby blanket patterns, and other knittables for wee ones.

For teachers in this county, summer is coming close to its end. Next Monday is a day that we begin the 2005-2006 school. Summers now seem to go so quickly. Think we might have a unit for the preschoolers to learn to knit.

Have a great week Cathy. I know the first few weeks back are a long haul. It always seemed to me to get easier by Labor Day. Do you teach more than one grade level, or prek only?

WOW, I love your sampler shawl. It looks great in the yarn that you have chosen. Would you mind sharing the name/weight of the yarn and the needle size? I have looked at this pattern in the Folk Shawls book, but the picture in the book does not do it justice. Your's is beautiful.
