I had some good knitting time tonight.... outdoor orchestra concert, in the shade, next to a lake. Listening to ~150 (incoming) 4th, 5th, and 6th graders play their stringed instruments (mostly violins and cellos). I love our orchestra program.

I still don't believe there are 400 kids in the program in Middle School and High School - this is a huge, vibrant program. And its a public school... how'd we get so lucky!

3 more rows on Birch. half-through the 7th repeat... I may not run out of yarn. But I'm still picking up a 4th skein just in case!

And - the Red Sweater project has caught my eye. One red sweater for each soldier who died in Iraq. Last count she needed 1000 more mini sweaters. Patterns and guidelines are on the site.

completed the 7th repeat +1 row with the first ball of yarn. My math says its highly unlikely that I will run out of yarn... but I'm still going to pick up the extra ball.
