Knitting Interrupted

Thank you all for your kind words about my sweater (and a few nice words about my butt). That sweater was like another child to me, and I'm grateful it was so well received.

I know I promised another FO last week. But unfortunately my potential FO still looks like this.

We decided to have a yard sale over the weekend. And then the Greatest conveniently went out of town. So I was left alone with the task of organizing it. The largest job by far was organizing the baby clothes.

I sorted them by size and gender. It was quite a job. I get tired just thinking about it. But the yard sale was a big success. We sold all the large baby items on Friday, and most of the baby clothes on Saturday.

I spent Sunday recovering from it all, the crazy shoppers, the mad organizing, the price haggling (who haggles when everything's been marked down to a quarter?) and the sunburn.

Oh, I'm sunburned.

It's a bad sunburn like I've never had, really painful. And to add insult to injury I've got the ugly white stripe where my sunglasses were. It's a hot look. I'm sure it will catch on soon. Pretty soon everyone will be sporting the red and white face. I'd show you pictures but I can't.

Today I took the children to a local fair. It was lots of fun and I'd love to show you pictures of that as well, but The Greatest is out of town (again) with the camera. So I am a photoless blog this week. He took the camera, the mp3 player, the DVD player from the car, and the cell phone. I hid my Palm otherwise I think he might have taken that with him as well. I'm going through gadget withdraw.

Atleast with him out of town I can get lots of knitting done. I hope to have many FOs soon. I've got three of my UFO August projects almost done. My fingers are flying without him to distract me.

I miss him.

Sorry to hear about the sunburn! Ouch! I know what you mean with the baby clothes! I just gave up and donated all the girls' stuff to Goodwill, Salvation Army etc. since there was no way I could honestly sit down and sort all of it! Looking forward to seeing more FO's; they never cease to impress and/or inspire me!

Wow, that's alot of clothes to sort! Good thing your kiddos were there to "help"! As for the sunburn, just lather on the aloe vera and sleep as much as you can till its gone, nothing else helps much. I havent had a sunburn in six years, since I moved to Alaska, but I remember how much they can hurt!

Hi! I found you via the knitty boards and have been visiting and lurking... Hope are able to get more FO's done, you sure do knit fast! Looking forward to seeing more! Hope the sunburn is better and glad you survived the garage sale.
Sorry for the double post, guess I shouldn't comment early in the morning LOL!

Wow - with Him gone, and taking all the cool acoutrement with him.... you really should get a lot of knitting done!

Take the kiddos to the park and sit (in the SHADE) and knit up a storm.... that's my vote!
