I'm seeing a trend here

It was the beginning of August (the 1st to be exact) the last time I blogged and it was a month before that when I'd blogged. There's plenty to say, enough to photograph, but man, I'm lazy.

I did go to my 20th high school reunion. Leslie (2nd from the right in the picture below) and I hadn't intended to stay long. 2 hours, maybe 3 and then we'd go. We got there around 7pm and I didn't get home until 1:30am.

This is a picture of a group of friends who were all in the same kindergarten class together - Dan, Megan, Leslie and Eric.

The nut in the back row is Jim - I can't remember when he arrived in BG, but like me he was a transplant from somewhere else.

I'm still pondering the decision by the committee to have dancing - they dimmed the lights and turned up the music (just like a high school dance), but no one was really interested. Oh, there were a few couples occasionally moving out there, but most people preferred to talk to one another.

It was nice to see the people who came, and I certainly didn't a chance to talk to everyone I wanted to catch up with, but I'm glad I went.

I've done some knitting as well.

Coffee CoziesThose are Coffee Cozies knit in Debbie Bliss Merino DK with size 5 needles. One done in pink with a mock cable and the other a simple rib decorated with a couple of ribbon flowers I had on hand. Tribble chewed a hole the purple one and it had to be repaired quickly since I had less than an hour to the time I was supposed to gift it. I filled the cup with chocolates and tucked the pink cozy inside.

Cruz Azul Hats 1The white and blue hats are knit in Cruz Azul colors for someone who works with Mom. The new mother is part of a family of soccer fans and Cruz Azul is their team. Knit in Bernat Baby Soft on size 4s. I used the basic patterns out of Ann Budd's Knitters Handy Book of Patterns.

The BlanketThe blanket is the result of the picture Miss S drew for her birthday blanket. Knit with size 17s using Caron yarns held doubled. It has a seed stitch border on all edges and it wasn't until I was done that I realized I could have carried the yarn up the sides for those skinny brown stripes. D'oh!

Pirate 2The last picture is the 2nd Pirate hat, knit for a friend of Erin's and gifted in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day. Knit with Wool-Ease on size 5's, it's more of a beanie type of hat. It's knit as a reverse of Erin's hat which was also modeled by Rob.

I'm in the midst of other knitting as well. But I haven't taken any pictures of those projects.

Here's one last picture for Nanny:
