Just checking in
Thought I would check in before I leave tomorrow for Cinncinatti and the Great Home School Convention. I will be gone 4 days, but K will be here with the kids and doing some much needed car/RV maintence. I went to this same convention 3 years ago, but now it is twice the size as before with a grand finale of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar (TLC fame). There has been some controversey over speakers as this perpertrated to be a christian event. The convention un-invited Ken Ham, founder and CEO of Answers in Genisis). You can find out more about this at http://www.answersingenisis.com/ AIG also runs the Creation Museum, right outside of Cincy, so he will be speaking there and offer addional items for all registered coventiont attendees, including a free day pass to the museum and if you never been, you should. They are currently in the processes of building a replica of the ark! Again, check these folks out : )
I am still knitting away. I just finished a scarf for an April b-day and will make the hat when I return.
Here is the scarf and it matches the fingerless gloves I made her for last years b-day : )
I am still big into hats and am making this tourquoise, sequenced one for myself : )
This is the book I take many of my patterns from. They are easy and basic. If your not a Harry Potter fan just sub any color you wish, as I do with my beannie hats! So far I only made one HP hat and the rest are just reg. w/specialty yarn for flair. Same goes for scarves and socks.
I had a friend ask me yesterday to share a craft booth with her at an upcoming event ~ EEK! Do I have enough items? Guess I need to get on a hat binge. How many hats can I knit on the 5 hour trip to and from Cincy? Can I knit during the covention workshops? Should I knit into the night? What else should I make besides hats? B said she would make some rice bags to sell, those are always popular as gifts and for boo-boos : ) I think it will be fun. I just feel so darned blessed to live here and have such an aray of friends to do things with and share my faith as well. I thank God everyday for leading me and my family down here.
Blessings, Beth Ann
