State Fair Socks Update

****note I actually wrote this post from my laptop and even though I said publish post it did not and so I was able to recover them and post now****

The two pairs of socks in the previous posts took 4th place at the Minnesota state fair. The blue in the plain or ribbed category and the red in the textured category. Jeanne took first in the plain or ribbed category.

Warning Long Post

Let's start off with my trip for work to Chisholm Minnesota:

Yes, it is Bob Dylan drive located in Hibbing, MN
and it is in front of the house where he grew up.

The family that lives there has a real sense of humor check
out the garage

Next up is a short trip to California to see my sister and her family

We went to San Francisco to see the Wave Organ

Colin really liked trying to hear the waves through the pipes

Then a walk on the beach and back to Minnesota.

On to finished objects. While I was in Singapore I made a baby bib for one of the reservation agents who was expecting

Next two pairs of finished socks

The blue is
Lucy Neatby's Celestial Merino and the red is Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Ruby River.

Final finished object a cute baby hat modeling by Malena with the the help of a friend.

So tomorrow is the Minnesota State Fair and I can't wait to see who won in the knitting categories.

One last picture if you have a cat you need one of these:

Although you want one without the scratcher having been destroyed by Boo and the girls. Hours of fun for the cats and for only $8

Happy Birthday Mom

In honor of what would have been My mom's 90th birthday yesterday, I am posting a picture of the house where she was born and lived all of her life. We sold the house in April and the weekend before closing in May I took this picture.

How many of us can say we stayed in one place that long?

Finished Objects coming soon as Megan gets back with my camera.
