In my last post I was waging a battle with myself whether to be good and go swimming or be bad and stay home by the fire knitting, playing Scrabble and Words With Friends and watching TV. But then my blog friend Claire said in a comment that she was betting that I'd go swimming. Then the capper was my swim partner Gracie called and said, why don't we meet for lunch first? OK.. ok.. alright..
So, Gracie and I met at Elmer's Restaurant (near the pool) for a healthy Dungeness crab salad. NUMMERS! And then we went and swam and we swam right over that dam. Boop boop ditem datem whatem choo! :-)
I'll be showing you how I'm coming on my Hitchhiker scarf as I go along.. my friends, it is s...l...o...w going. The yarn is thinnnnnnn... but it's growing slowly but surely.
The name of this pattern calls to me.. did I ever tell you about the time my friend decided we should pack a backpack and hitchhike to San Francisco to see Haight-Ashbury? And we did? Luckily all the people who gave us a ride turned out to be good people and interesting to boot. We did that between working on staff to put on two rock festivals in Seattle. :-) Click HERE to read about that time.. who performed in the festivals.. such as The Doors!
My blog friend from Australia.. Dorothy.. is knitting with us.. look at this gorgeous color of purple! And wow.. her stitches are SO even and nice!
And my sister Denise is doing well on hers.. isn't this pretty?
I want to share a few photos that Kristi got of our feral cat Simba. She used her phone camera so these aren't real clear photos, but doesn't he look healthier now? She got him some kitty treats and is trying to get him to trust her by tossing them to him.. closer and closer..
She put the cushion off my rattan chair under another chair for a place for him to get in out of the wind and rain. I think we need to get him his very own cozy bed and put the cushion back on the chair. :-)
