Are you ready for some football?
I was afraid that there wasn’t going to be any football this year. But they got it all figured out and we are in Pre-Season!!! I didn’t get to see the Cowboys play their first pre-season game because it wasn’t televised, but they won!!! I watched the Bears beat the Bills last night. My son-in-law I’m sure is a very happy camper because he is a huge Bears fan :). My daughter, like me, is a Cowboys fan, makes for an interesting household when those two teams play each other :P. My oldest son is a Steelers fan, no accounting for taste :P. My 2nd son has no interest in football and neither did my youngest son, what can I say.
3rd Comfort Shawl started
This is a simple shawl
by Lionbrand yarn. It’s a garter stitch (knit every row) using their homespun yarn. Very simple but the yarn makes it beautiful. I have a co-worker that was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She did the radiation and they found that it had migrated to her pancreas so she is doing radiation again and I believe they will follow up with chemo. These treatments make her very sick and she gets cold easily so I thought a nice heavy soft shawl with a soothing color would be nice. I’ll post a picture when I finish, which I hope will be be soon. I’m not feeling very well today so I haven’t been knitting on it today. I only have about a 1/3 of a skein left. My grandchildren (3 & 5) saw it and wanted me to make them one. I told them I would make them one for Christmas, they were so excited. You don’t see little ones excited about a hand knit item very often, was a good feeling.
Our weather has cooled down significantly and I’ve been able to use my air conditioner much less. Has been much less humid and much more comfortable. 🙂 My ferret and my parakeet both did their shedding/molting thing early this year, so I expect we will see an early fall and winter, sigh.
