ROAD TRIP TO MEXICO

Today we made a quick trip to Mexico for some dental work on the hubby.   Temperatures today were in the low 90's - so very pleasant.  Along the way I took this picture of some Arizona mountains (yes, southern Arizona does have mountains).   Sorry for the picture of the antennae!
I knit some on the hat for a cute little girl here in town who has been diagnosed with leukemia.

ON TO A HAT NOW

I'm knitting this Swirl hat (pattern here).   This is for a local 8yr old girl who has just been diagnosed with leukemia.  Each member of our knitting group is knitting a hat for her. 

Tomorrow we are driving down to Mexico to go to a dentist just across the border, so I should get lots of knitting time while hubby drives (about 6 hrs round trip).

DISHCLOTH/WASHCLOTH NUMBER 2

Finished the 2nd dishcloth/washcloth with this set.  I don't exactly like the way the orange color pooled/flashed.  Sometimes that happens with yarn - it had a very short color repeat.The two of them make a nice set for gift giving.

FIERY SUNSET

Grabbed this pic of the sunset last night.    Arizona does have beautiful sunsets - I can never get enough of them.

I've finished knitting on this today, and thought this pretty orange dishcloth goes with Fall, sunsets, etc.  The pattern is Bridgette Dishcloth by Deb Buckingham.

PATTERN, OH PATTERN, WHERE ARE YOU?

Have you ever seen a messier desk than this one?   I should have cleaned it up before we went on our little 4-day trip to visit family, but of course, I didn't get 'er done!



I have knitting meet-up tonight and am working on this pair of fingerless mitts and the pattern is buried under all this mess:  receipts, mail, magazines, etc.  I know I can get the pattern elsewhere, but this one has my notes on it, indicates where I left off, etc.

Wish me luck in getting this mess organized, receipts posted to Quicken, probably a bill or two which requires payment online, and oh, yes - FIND THE PATTERN!

WEEKEND VISIT TO LAS VEGAS

This is how and where we spent a long weekend.  Grandkids, our kids and us had a great time.   Great meals, lots of good visiting and had a wonderful time.   They have recently moved back in the US (Las Vegas) from Qatar and we were so happy to see them.    Took my knitting along but had so many other things to do I didn't even want to knit.

OUTDOOR PICTURE

Rain's gone - sunshine here. so, here's the outdoor picture of my beaded scarf.  The grape color is pretty much correct, however the beads don't show up very well.  If you click on the picture, the larger version shows the beads.  Also, too bad my oleander bush isn't strong enough to hold up the scarf better, but you get the idea.
