Finally....I had been going to post pics, but I left my camera at work. Oops... pics tomorrow, I guess
I finished the Kersti Blanket, and its beautiful! And, since its July, I swatched the Ribby Raglan and knit the first inch or so. And, gifted both the waves blanket and the Kersti blanket. Granted, the parent of the Waves blanket recipient wasn't in the office today, and the other parent was waiting to open the present until he got home so I have no idea of the reactions.
Since I have no pics, I'll share a sappy sweet story about the Little One instead.
On the Fourth, we had dinner with friends, then went to their Grandmother's house to watch fireworks. (Aside - this was a wonderful location. We saw the Stillwater fireworks, which are set off over the Mississippi river. This house is set on the bluff, with an amazing up and down stream view. I love fireworks over water - the boats, the reflections... I hadn't seen the Stillwater fireworks before, but they are a perfectly acceptable set of pretties.)
So, the Little One sat on my lap, held her hands over her ears, and told us that the fireworks "scared her ears". Eventually she sat back in her chair and watched the rest by herself. The great part is yesterday, though. Yesterday approximately 7 times she'd say "fireworks". After someone agreed that she saw fireworks, she'd put her hands over her ears and say "they scare my ears". Agreement, then she'd say "The light scared my ears". Then she'd continue "On my chair. With the guys".
The description never varied. She told us the same thing over and over. I think the fireworks made a great impression on her - don't you think. And, isn't "scare my ears" just the cutest?!?
Ok. Enough gushing. Pics tomorrow.
I love Kersti :-)
