Bye Baby (surprise), WWKIP, and Cyndi

I spent Saturday morning at my friend's baby shower. She had a belly dancer perform and do a special symbolic dance for father, mother, and baby. It was really beautiful, different, and refreshing.

After my husband and I left the shower (yes, men were invited, as they should be!) I headed off to Montclair. Because of the traffic, however, I was very late for Knit in Public at Stix and I didn't even really knit in public at all yesterday, but Sheila took pitty on me and gave me a KIP pin anyway:)

And on Friday, one of my favorite people performed on Good Morning America, but I was at work so I'm catching her on Youtube...

Buttons are done, Man

I love them...they're so cute...Mom put them on and tucked for me.

A closer look...

The collar is not I-cord, but layers of slip stitch (crochet).
While Mom was sewing on the buttons she saw that one duckie doesn't have a yellow beak...

but she said there was something endearing about the little thing, and I have to agree, so she stays.

9 Days Left!

I am so ready for summer to come. I want to get out of work. My school seems to be disintegrating structurally, mirroring the same errosion in the behavior in some of the staff. People are treating others with such disrespect that I've found it very frustrating, and can't seem to put some issues aside.

School is also very difficult. I'm constantly reading (and knitting at the same time), but it's so much work right now with work from work and other things. My mother helped me grade my students' finals b/c it just would not have gotten done in two evenings. Thanks, Mom!

Aurora, my mother in law who recently passed, left us quite a challenge in her home. She kept everything, even stuff people just shouldn't keep...old bills, old catalogues, etc, use your imagination. Hopefully we'll be heading out in a few moments to do some more work over there. The week she dyed we were there from early in the morning until seven or so each night working non-stop.

On the knitting front. My other friend is having her baby shower next week so I need to have these two things done... the Cotton Baby Surprise and this Easy Ripple Baby Blanket

Hopefully all this will be done before next Saturday.

If time allows, Mom, Pepper, and myself will be taking part in the World Wide Knit in Public day next Saturday after the baby shower. We'll hopefully be going to the knit out at Stix-n-Stitches. Go to the Knitting in Public web site and see if a place near you is holding an event.

Other than that, I've started a sock, my first!

And I'm still working on writing a pattern...this lace top down don't know...

Crappy pictures, but you get the idea.
